Meditation related activities
Our teacher Sri Chinmoy inspired us to use the qualities and talents that meditation brought us in other area’s of life as well. Here are some of the things we do to augment our spiritual practice.
Running plays a very important role in our spiritual lives. Sri Chinmoy often said that meditation and running share a special link and that both activities strengthen one another. Running is a wonderful way to keep the body fit and receptive, so that the energies of meditation can flow through it without obstructions. We often organize races for the general public to show that physical fitness and spiritual health can go together.
Music for meditation – free download
Spiritual music has a tremendous capacity to elevate our consciousness. Springing from the heart and the soul, spiritual music helps us in our meditation to attain states of deep peace and fulfilling joy. During our classes we introduce music and singing as powerful meditation tools to strengthen your own meditation practice and help you become a better human being.
Many of our class-givers are also singers and musicians, as Sri Chinmoy himself was an accomplished musician and composer. Listen to a fragment of meditation music below. Or visit the Radio Sri Chinmoy website for more meditation music.
Running for Peace
Sri Chinmoy created the Peace Run in 1989 as a way to offer the message of world-peace and world-oneness in a dynamic and inspiring way. The Peace Runs takes place every year and involves teams of runners carrying a Peace Torch through many countries. The Peace Run has visited Belgium and Brussels many times, inclusing visits to the European Parliament.
Sri Chinmoy was also a prolific painter. He called his art ‘jharna kala’, which is Bengali for fountain-art. The name points to the spontaneous flow of his art, that sprung from the depths of his meditation. Sri Chinmoy also drew millions of ‘soul-birds’, figurative drawings of birds representing the human soul. Below are a few examples of his artwork.
