Members of the Sri Chinmoy Centre have been involved in various projects promoting happiness, including participation in the United Nations International Day of Happiness.
An event at Panorama Cafe, New York entitled “Happiness in Poetry”, which included sharing short poems and aphorisms on the theme of happiness.
In one of the largest bookstores in Bratislava, Slovakia, there was an event to mark a new translation of the popular book – ‘The Jewels of Happiness’ by Sri Chinmoy. The event was called “The Secret of Happiness” to honour the spirit of the International Day of Happiness.
A beautiful atmosphere was created by Agnikana’s muisc group. Before the event, each participant received a card with a quote about happiness
