Interviewer: As well as a Guru you are also an artist and a prolific writer. I understand you wrote 800 poems in one night. Why do you write so many poems?

Sri Chinmoy: It is not I who write; I get inspiration from Somebody within me, my Inner Pilot. He inspires me according to my capacity and receptivity. I just execute His Will.

From:Sri Chinmoy,My heart's salutation to Australia, part 2, Agni Press, 1976
