Since then many meditation centers have been established under his guidance all over the world.

Sri Chinmoy’s path is a path of the heart. He put great importance in developing the heart and at the same time on manifesting the inner spirituality in the outer world. Sport in general and running in particular play an important part in his teachings. Sri Chinmoy is the inspiration between the World Harmony Run a relay run for peace through over 100 countries.

Sri Chinmoy was very creative in different fields. Over 1400 books, mainly aphorisms and poetry, have been published. He composed a great number of spiritual songs and performed them also on many different instruments at his concerts. He produced over 200,000 pieces of colourful abstract mystical art called “Jharna Kala”, fountain art, and spent the latter part of his life drawing beautiful birds representing the human soul. In the field of sports he was personally very active and became known specially for his lifting of very heavy weights.
