Sri Chinmoy himself gave close to 800 public concerts during his lifetime. He felt that spiritual music had a unique capacity to bring people into the heart and away from the mind. He believed that by immersing ourselves in music, we can experience a great sense of inner peace and joy.
Music helps the spiritual seeker to go deep within to get the utmost satisfaction from life, from truth, from reality. The spiritual life, in turn, helps music to offer its capacity and its strength, which is the soul’s light, to the world at large.”
Songs of the Soul is an going series of concerts offered by the Sri Chinmoy Centre since 2008. The aim of the concerts is to share Sri Chinmoy’s musical legacy and give the public an opportunity to experience this unique musical offering.
