The aim of the group is to offer the music and songs of Sri Chinmoy in its purest and simplest form. Sri Chinmoy composed over 20,000 songs during his lifetime – songs which express a variety of spiritual emotions and can be very conducive for meditation.

“Music is psychic enlightenment. Music is the supreme fulfilment of the aspiring human soul.”

Sri Chinmoy, Sound and Silence, Part 2, Agni Press, 1982
