Here is a faksimile print of an article recently being published in the Kopavogsbladid. Joylato is the first Icelandic icecream shop working with the new N2 system, allowing an immediate and individual icecream after adding N2 to a prepared mix of milk or alternative milk. The owner of the Divine Enterprise, Pranava, is happy with the start and the feedback. People say it is the best icecream in Iceland. Pranava also plans to open a second Joylato shop in downtown Reykjavik this spring, combined with a Health Food Shop, just 30m away from the restaurant Ecstasy’s Heart-Garden, also operated by students of Sri Chinmoy.
On the weekend of Jan, 30/31st, 2016, a big championship of paragliders happened in front of Sri Chinmoy’s statue, in Niterói, Brazil. The statue is located in the City Park (Parque da Cidade), where the ‘birdmen’ jumped. The sky was brightly blue and the wind perfect. The amazing atmosphere of sport and beauty made the place just perfect to have Sri Chinmoy’s blessings from behind. – Bhumika
An international all-male a cappella choir, “Oneness-Dream” present songs of Sri Chinmoy, this time in the Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Valletta, Malta on January 16th, 2016. Filmed and edited by Kedar Misani.
Sri Chinmoy saw music as a pure language of the heart, a pathway to meditation, an expression and revelation of the Divine. His songs, flowing from the depths and heights of meditation, were composed spontaneously, and are unadorned with harmony or accompaniment – just the purity, beauty, simplicity, intimacy and immediacy of word and melody. For Sri Chinmoy, all faiths are branches of one life-tree. In addition to his own words, he has set music to sacred texts from Christian, Buddhist and Hindu traditions. “Oneness-Dream” celebrate this oneness-in-diversity by singing in places of worship of all faiths around the world, these sacred places the perfect setting for songs of pure devotion to the highest and inmost we all share.
The members of “Oneness-Dream” are disciples of Sri Chinmoy, following his spiritual path of meditation and service. None are professional musicians. The members come from many countries and range in age from their 20s to their 60s. “Oneness-Dream” have recorded two CDs – In Vastness-Peace (2011), from a tour of the churches of Iceland; and In Oneness-Light (2012), sung in the temples and pagodas of Myanmar.
