My secret promise revealed1

After the race a man came up to me and asked, “Sri Chinmoy, how is your leg injury?” He was not a disciple, so how did he know about my leg?

I said, “I am getting better.”

Then he said, “I understand that by your birthday you want to complete a thousand miles. How many miles have you completed?”

I said, “Not even 600.”

He said, “You must finish it before your birthday!”

He was not a disciple, but he knew all about my secret promise!
