Sri Chinmoy deceased at 76

Posted on October 12, 2007 by


Founder of the Sri Chinmoy organisation and spritual leader, Sri Chinmoy has passed away, aged 76. Popularly known as ‘the Guru’ Sri Chinmoy was an Indian philosopher and teacher who emigrated to the US in 1964. He was an author, composer, artist and athlete. He is perhaps best known for holding public events on the theme of inner peace and world harmony, such as concerts, meditations and races. The New Zealand 24 hour race scheduled to be held this weekend has been cancelled as a mark of respect. For more information on Sri Chinmoy click here.
