Sri Chinmoy and Mother Teresa cherished a deep bond and spoke by phone often. In fact, Sri Chinmoy was one of the last people she spoke with by phone before her passing. “In Mother Teresa I find two aspects: the mother and the sister,” said Sri Chinmoy. “One moment she is the mother of compassion; the next moment she is the sister of affection. When I see her and talk to her, she blesses me as a mother blesses her child, and again she shows me the utmost sisterly affection.”
My sisters and brothers of the world,
Are we so blind that we cannot see
God’s own Autograph
On Mother Teresa’s forehead?
The sorrowful earth-planet
Has a special treasure-home,
And that home
Is your compassion-heart.
– Sri Chinmoy
