Sri Chinmoy (1931 – 2007) offered over 750 Peace Concerts and initiated the Peace Run. The Run is a global relay that seeks to promote international friendship and understanding. Since its inception, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run has traversed over 140 nations and touched the lives of millions of people.
Sri Chinmoy tried to make the inner peace, joy and universal love, which he experienced in meditation, accessible to other people, through myriad forms of expression. He was a composer, musician, artist, poet, author and athlete. He created over 140,000 pieces of abstract mystical art, along with almost 16 million drawings of birds (several copies of which are exhibited in our café) symbolising the freedom of the human soul.
Sri Chinmoy considered the inner peace of the individual as the key to a peaceful world. You can learn how to meditate according to a true spiritual tradition for free at Sri Chinmoy Centres in over 300 cities and 50 countries. There, experienced class givers show you a wide rage of concentration, breathing and meditation techniques, so that you can discover the right ones for you.
“Your real home is your heart” is taken from one of Sri Chinmoy’s many books; Meditation – Man-Perfection in God-Satisfaction. We sell Sri Chinmoy’s books in German and English, as well as his spiritual music and meditation CDs.
“Sri Chinmoy was a great man. God is smiling to know the immense good he has accomplished and encouraged in others. In a world of suspicion, hostility and conflict, he worked tirelessly to bring the different faiths together and inspired many to emulate.” – Desmond Tutu, October, 2007 after the passing of Sri Chinmoy
