Spiritual Masters do not die

This is one of the stories in our Story-Gems project, a collection of our experiences with our Guru, Sri Chinmoy. Project homepage »

Sri Chinmoy makes his prayerful obeisance before a statue of Sri Ramakrishna.

Here is a very short but extremely significant story.

One day Guru had invited us to ask questions, and one of the girls came up and began to ask, “Guru, when Sri Ramakrishna died . . .”

Guru immediately interrupted her and said, “Spiritual Masters do not die. They leave the body but they never, never die.”

Oh, where is death?
No death, no death.
All-where I see God’s
