Walking Meditation is a special form of meditation that spiritual leader and peace advocate Sri Chinmoy used a lot on his transformed tennis-court “Aspiration-Grund” in Jamaica, Queens (NY) to inwardly communicate with his disciples that gathered several times a year in New York. Filmed by kedarvideo, Switzerland in April 1993.
Sri Chinmoy: “On the first day of this year, I was in Nandi, Fiji. My father’s soul came to me and we had a marathon conversation. Then I became inspired to draw birds representing my father, my mother and my sisters and brothers as part of my series of one million birds. Although these soul-bird drawings are part of my one million, they are not like the other birds. These bird drawings are something special in my own life. In these birds, I have put the consciousness of my father, my mother and my sisters and brothers. I can see it very vividly, very vividly. Strangely enough, when my students counted the number of little birds in my mother’s drawing, they found the exact number to be 3,127 — and I happened to be born in 1931 on August 27th.” – This photo by Prashphutita Greco was published today on: https://www.srichinmoy-reflections.com/.
Ramita loves the music of Sri Chinmoy and mingles her own soulfulness with the inner qualities of her master – with the help of her beloved harp. In her musical interpretations she captures the beauty of the melodies; in her photographs she captures the stillness of Mother Nature. The music for this slideshow is “Chitta Aji” by Sri Chinmoy. Edited by kedarvideo.
On November 19, 1974 Sri Chinmoy started his art career in the west. Here are some of the early drawings, created in late November and December of that year, the first being the famous rose picture.

At the end all the children – the whole audience – gave a standing ovation, clapping and thrumming enthusiastically. As an “encore” the children sang two songs once more with great joy and enthusiasm.
