Other Notebooks

The two undated notebooks in this section, written in Sri Chinmoy’s own hand, contain some of the drafts for his extensive university lecture tour of England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, France and Iceland in June/July 1974. The notebooks are significant in that they reveal something of the evolution of these lectures, the spontaneous flow of Sri Chinmoy’s thought and inspiration. The specific lectures to which these drafts relate have been  published in parts 3 and 4 of Sri Chinmoy’s ‘My Rose Petals’ series.
