19 SeptemberAmrita-da's birthday. I paid my most respectful pranam to him and said: "Amrita-da, I shall always try to please you."
"You can do that easily, Chinmoy. This year I am allowing you and others to touch my feet. But beginning on my next birthday, you will notice a human being without feet. In God's creation, I will be the first human being without parallel."
