Then, while we are cycling, we are reminding ourselves of evolution, of how the world is evolving in cycles. When we think of our planet, we think of a wheel turning; our life also is evolving like a wheel. So cycling reminds us of the process of evolution and of how everything goes in cycles. Once upon a time, in the hoary past, we lived in an era of truth. Now we are living in an era of falsehood. There was a time when truth reigned supreme, but now we see at every moment and every place that falsehood is reigning supreme. Our goal is to bring back again the Golden Age in which truth will be our inner guide and will reign supreme. So cycling reminds us of evolution, inner and outer.
Excerpt from The Outer Running And The Inner Running by Sri Chinmoy
I am so happy to see these pictures. This was before I became a disciple of Sri Chinmoy. I missed him riding on a bicycle.
Each day a new photo of spiritual master Sri Chinmoy is added to this photo blog, and online viewers are welcome to provide details in the comments for each photo if you happen to be familiar with the context of a particular photo.
