In the 1970s Sri Chinmoy had only a small group of students and the activities were quite different from recent years. These pictures show the spiritual teacher engaged in various sports disciplines, visiting exhibitions and enterprises, and performing in his first public concerts.

As a soundtrack I chose excerpts of an organ piece by Sri Chinmoy recorded in Iceland.

This slideshow was released to commemorate Sri Chinmoy’s Mahasamadhi on October 11
