Remembering the world’s largest pencil

In August 2007, shortly before his passing on October 11, Sri Chinmoy visited the world’s largest pencil that had been built by Ashrita Furman and friends in his honor. This enlarged video version shows the whole procedure from finishing the pencil until erecting it with the help of a crane in Jamaica, Queens, NY. In the meantime the pencil has been transported to the St. Louis City Museum and is included in its permanent exhibition of unusual objects. Filmed by kedarvideo, Switzerland.

The Villa Practice

Before the ONENESS-DREAM choir started his one-week tour through spiritual places, churches and abbeys in the Tuscany, they practiced in a beautiful old villa at the suburbs of Florence. 50 English songs of Sri Chinmoy were chosen and for two days straight they tried to interpret them with heart and soul.

Peace Run Portugal 2017

In late May and early June of 2017, over a period of 10 days, a team of Peace Runners from 13 different countries visited 48 schools in Madeira, the Azores and Figueira da Foz in Portugal. The students and citizens of these remarkable Portuguese communities gave expression to their hopes and dreams for a more peaceful world. Through their art, song and dance you will no doubt find a common humanity that will warm your heart and nourish your soul. The Peace Run is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year having been founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1987 as a way to bring people together and celebrate our universal aspiration for love, peace and happiness.
