Sri Chinmoy – a Life for Peace
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.
