Peace concerts

Melodies of the peaceful heart

Music is the universal language of the heart, which creates a special unity between the artist and the listener without language barriers. During his lifetime, Sri Chinmoy gave over half a thousand free peace concerts around the world, a tradition that has continued ever since, performing his music. The soul-stirring melodies he composed lead listeners to the heart through a special meditative experience and provide music lovers with an unparalleled adventure. These special instrumental concerts typically bring an audience of half a thousand people on a journey through the melody of the heart.

meditation courses

meditation in practice

Meditation is our conscious growth into the infinite. When we meditate, we enter the empty, still and silent mind and let ourselves become the Infinite.Meditation is like diving to the bottom of the sea, where everything is still and calm. There may be waves crashing on the surface, but the depths of the sea are untouched. In the deepest depths of the sea, there is complete silence. We are trying to bring this state of being closer, step by step, to those who are interested.
