Sri Chinmoy

Born in 1931, Sri Chinmoy spent many hours a day in meditation as a teenager and young adult in a spiritual community in South India, and attained the high states of consciousness described in various traditions as enlightenment or God-realisation.

Sri Chinmoy came to New York in 1964 to share his inner realisations, and he lived in Queens until his passing in 2007. There are now Sri Chinmoy Centres located all over the world, and several thousand students study meditation and live a dedicated spiritual life based on his teachings and guidance.

What is it like to study with Sri Chinmoy?

He is simply an elder brother of humanity, but as someone who has ascended the realization mountain, he can help and guide others up that mountain..." Pradhan Balter, a student of Sri Chinmoy for over 40 years, describes the timeless principles of studying with a spiritual Teacher.
