World Harmony Peace Statue from Sri Chinmoy in Waterfront Park, Cardiff Bay, United Kingdom. Designed by Kaivalya Torpy. Unveiled 11 March 2012 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Peace Run.
The group “Oneness-Dream”, all members being students of Sri Chinmoy, perfomed spiritual songs by their master in the famous Rock of Cashel ruin in Tipperary County in Ireland as part of a countrywide one week tour late April 2016. Watch this his historical recording mingling the ancient celtic vibrations with the spiritual songs of a modern master.
Again this year disciple cyclists from 21 countries covered the distance of 60,000 km honoring our master who also was a keen cyclist and established the Sri Chinmoy Cycling Team. The competition was also self-transcendence for many of us. I could for example more than double my distance to 1427.2 km this year (above photo is from my last few kilometers yesterday evening). Watch the whole result list and photos of the participants here. – Kedar
Last Friday Pranava’s 2nd Joylato ice cream shop opened in the center of Reykjavik, on the same street as two other Divine Enterprises, the restaurant Ecstasy’s Heart-Garden and the Sangitamyia the nectar music shop and only a few hundred meters away from the famous church Hallgrímskirkja. Joylato uniquely works with N2, the newest invention in ice cream making, using liquid N2 to instantaneously create ice cream fresh from bases that are available in vegan quality and with raw milk. Most of the ingredients are organic and if possible local. After a first Joylato store in his home town Kopavogur in the suburbs of Rekjavik this new enterprise is really well located and from day 1 people rushed in to get their individually made ice cream. Yesterday there were over 200 customers and the whole production was sold out. The new ice cream shop is combined with a health food shop where Magnesium, vitamins, cold-pressed oils, organic snacks and home-made chocolate are available.
I am currently browsing through my old black and white negatives and color slides and digitalize them. So if you want to see photos you have never seen before, check out srichinmoyphoto.com in the coming days and weeks! – Kedar
“You are changing the face and fate of mankind. Your very name encourages and inspires. As soon as people hear ‘Muhammad Ali,’ they are inspired. They get tremendous joy. They get such dynamism to be brave and face ignorance. Your very name does that. That’s why I am so grateful to you, so proud of you.”
– Sri Chinmoy, The seeker’s mind
Sri Chinmoy also wrote a song for Muhammed Ali; this is the text:
Muhammad Ali, Champion Ali,
Greater than the greatest, really!
Sleepless you cry for Allah’s Grace,
Deathless you fight for the Muslim race.
Muhammad Ali, Champion Ali!
Your moon-pure heart and justice-light
Shall smash the frown of ignorance-night.
Ali, you are Eternity’s pride.
Your victory’s smile is the pole-star guide.
– Sri Chinmoy
