Tributes from Sri Chinmoy's students and friends
"...Everything he fulfilled, fulfilled, fulfilled. Those things left undone were undone only because there was no receptivity on earth. Never did he fail to make a valiant effort to accomplish something for his beloved Lord Supreme, and for humanity. Now it will take literally hundreds of years for humanity to catch up to his speed, his vision. How can I mourn when I was given the great privilege to be among the first generation to witness his incredible sacrifice?..."
Farewell Sri Chinmoy by Sumangali Morhall

Guru, Our Guru, Our Eternal Guru by Animesh Harrington

Gratitude to Sri Chinmoy - by Noivedya Juddery
"...Even in his final weeks – I last saw him early in September – he was active, still demonstrating humanity's unlimited power. Had he not been taken from us, of course, he would still have done more – writing poetry, lifting incredible weights, drawing Soul-Birds, playing meditative music, or simply showing his love for the world through his supreme meditation..."
A Tribute to Sri Chinmoy by Christopher Willis
"...Sri Chinmoy achieved the unachievable, yet with the same humility of starlight that has travelled unsullied across galaxies and solar systems. He carried a message from the heavens and was inexhaustible in his determination, offering light unconditionally, without expectation, a beacon of hope shining brightly through the tethers of world ignorance..."
A Tribute to My Guru - by Utthal Tindel
"...To me death is a cruel hoax – a sham and an illusion. “Oh death where art thy dominion?” It certainly has nothing to do with the imperishable and magnificent spirit which was, is and shall eternally remain Sri Chinmoy, the most humble and self-giving being who ever graced this earth – and my most beloved Guru...."
My Journey with Sri Chinmoy - by Kedar Misani
"...When I attended a lecture by one of Sri Chinmoy's students on October 27, 1978 together with my wife, I could not imagine what impact this first contact would bring into my life. I can only witness that my relationship with Sri Chinmoy became stronger and deeper from year to year..."
