Sri Chinmoy meditates at the very spot (pictured below) where, almost 80 years earlier, Swami Vivekananda had meditated and entered into Nirvikalpa Samadhi, on Wellesley Island, Thousand Island Park, in upper New York state.
Thousand Island Park
When I went to Thousand Island Park, I sat at a place where they said that Swami Vivekananda had sat. I was not getting any vibration from that place. I entered into my highest. Then I saw another place nearby, and there I sat. I said, “This is the place.” It is not more than one hundred or two hundred metres away. There I got Swami Vivekananda's full vibration. Then I went to see the small house where he stayed.
