A poet, artist, philosopher, humanitarian, musician, sportsman and meditation teacher, Sri Chinmoy dedicated his life to the service of mankind through these many different avenues of endeavour. He set up meditation centres all over the world so that meditation classes could be offered free-of-charge to everyone and anybody who felt an interest. He wrote and lectured extensively on a wide range of spiritual and humanitarian topics, always with a view to inspiring his audience towards higher ideals. He offered more than 800 concerts of meditative music, always completely free of charge, to bring an experience of personal peace to the listener.
Today Sri Chinmoy’s teachings are bringing hope and inspiration to people all over the world through his books, his music and the activities of the worldwide Sri Chinmoy Centres
