Sri Chinmoy was born in 1931 in Bengal, India and entered a spiritual community at a young age. In 1964 he moved to New York City to teach meditation to Western audiences.
Through public concerts, meditations, talks as well as through sports, visual arts and poetry, he strove tirelessly to promote the cause of world peace and the potential of the human spirit. His students continue to promote his philosophy through various activities, notably the Peace Run and free meditation classes.
