Recently (15-26 October 2012), an exhibition of paintings for World-Harmony and World-Peace by Sri Chinmoy were displayed in the United Nations headquarters in New York. The exhibit introduces art as a way of promoting the ideals of peace, compassion, benevolence, non-violence, oneness and human understanding, which are so fundamentally necessary for humankind’s peaceful co-existence.
This two-week long exhibition has been visited by a large number of world leaders and diplomats, such as Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Satish Dupelia, a great grandson of Mahatma Gandhi.
This project have been organized by Permanent Mission of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, Jharna-Kala Art Foundation and the NGO organization – Sri Chinmoy: The Peace Meditation at the United Nations.
