The manager, Pradeep, kindly shared with us some thoughts about the new store.

Question: Tell us a little about the move to a new shop

/Pradeep/ We had been two years in the old location which was right across the street but the building was not any more suitable for the needs of a modern day health food store. We had many new ideas and great capacities within the team of workers that couldn’t really come to fruition there because of lack of space. We decided we would search for a bigger location, and after two years we got this opportunity for a new bigger location right opposite the street, not even ten meters away. With the help of  designers, such as Bikash, Sumangali, Chandrakanta and Drisalu we worked on developing a new concept for our Madal Bal shop -  Happy, Healthy, Tasty.

Songs of the Soul Concert New York 2015

During a recent international celebration of Sri Chinmoy’s students in New York, a free Songs of the Soul concert was offered at the Baruch Performing Arts Centre, Manhattan.

Featuring a host of musicians from around the world, the performers offered different interpretations of Sri Chinmoy’s music.

“Everybody on earth is a musician and a singer. A singer does not have to carry a note perfectly. Music is the language of God. God’s language, music, is not like mathematics or geometry. It is a language of love. If we love music, that is enough.”

– Sri Chinmoy, Sri Chinmoy answers, part 27, Agni Press, 2000

Some of the performers on the night included:

Paree’s International Group.
Sri Chinmoy Centre Choir
Sri Chinmoy Centre Choir

When I paint, I try to go deep within to the source of creativity where it is all peace, calmness and quiet.”
