28 years (18th and 22nd February 1990)

The very first time I was at the presence of Guru was on Sunday, 18 February 1990. He was offering a Peace Concert in Nürnberg, Germany, at the Meistersingerhalle Concert Hall, which significantly means «The Hall of the Master-Singer».

Although I first met a disciple of Sri Chinmoy, Kailash, in the spring of the previous year, it was only when coming back from that Concert that I knew I was born to be on Guru’s Path.

The next day, while travelling back to Italy, I asked to be accepted as his disciple.

On Friday, 23 February 1990, Guru accepted me as disciple. He was in East Berlin. That evening he was offering a Peace Concert at the Kongresshalle.

Tomorrow will mark my 28 years on the sunlit Path of Sri Chinmoy, the Supreme Yoga.

I do not think I will ever be able to fathom the unfathomable Compassion that brought me on.
