Interviewer: What about your musical background? When did you first become interested in music?

Sri Chinmoy: When I was four or five years old, my sister started teaching me songs. Then, when I was in my adolescence, God blessed me with a good singing voice. I learned hundreds of songs and composed a few as well. Here in America I started composing songs regularly, and I have written a few thousand. They are all spiritual songs, soulful songs — songs that can and will help us immensely in our spiritual life.
