'When I play with you, I feel I am never nervous.'

One sweet story is that I used to play tennis with Guru, just Guru and me over at Jamaica High School. I was a good tennis player when I was younger, but playing with Guru by myself, I was very nervous. I cannot tell you how nervous I was playing.

Sri Chinmoy plays tennis with Databir

One day when I was playing with Guru, Guru all of a sudden said, “Casey, when I play with you, I feel I am never nervous.” When Guru said that, I laughed because I knew how nervous I was. And I wasn’t nervous anymore.

God’s Tennis Court
Is meant only for those
Who like to play all the time
Surrender-game.
