Everyone wants to experience peace, love and happiness. We found the easiest and fastest way is to meditate. Everyone can meditate; spare a few minutes a day and experience peace and joy.
At the request of our spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy (pictured), the classes we offer are free of charge – inner peace is not something we can give you; it is your own discovery and birthright, and we are merely the facilitators.
