An all-night celebration of the life of Sri Chinmoy at the Hidden Gardens in Glasgow.

On the longest day of the year, the Sri Chinmoy Centres in Great Britain celebrated the life of Sri Chinmoy in a festival of readings, musical performances and a puppet show about incidents in the life of Akbar and Birbal.

The event was organised by Adarsha and friends and was held at the beautiful location of the Hidden Gardens, in the heart of Glasgow.  Janaka Alan Spence, started the program with a beautiful introduction and recitation of Sri Chinmoy’s poems.
