Sri Chinmoy Kumar Ghose was born in the small village of Shakpura in East Bengal on August 27th, 1931. He entered the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Southern India as a youth and spent the next 20 years in spiritual practice. Sri Chinmoy serves as an inner spiritual guide to seekers and students in some 60 countries around the world. He encouraged a harmonious lifestyle that blends the inner discipline of prayer and meditation with the dynamism of modern life. Sri Chinmoy did not charge a fee for his spiritual guidance or concerts in the firm belief that meditation is everyone's birthright. In 1964, Sri Chinmoy moved to New York City to offer his dedicated service to the West through music, a worldwide concert series, literary outpourings and art. These pages offer up-to-date, in-depth coverage of his musical highlights, largest concerts, (music brochures available) as well as total published works, Jharna-Kala Fountain-Art exhibits and galleries, and more.
