The meditation club

In Athens I was invited to visit a meditation club that follows all the spiritual Masters, including Ramakrishna and Satya Sai Baba. They liked my meditation book and have translated an abridged version.

They sang bhajans and asked me quite a few questions. At one point they were singing "Ganesha" in various ways, but I couldn't understand what they were saying.

I asked, "What were you singing?"

They said, "You don't know? This is about your God Ganesha."

Then I told them a few stories about Ganesha and they were very happy. Finally they sang one of my Bengali songs, "Usha bala elo." Suhriday and Nikunja had taught them.
