Art Exhibition at the United Nations


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.
