Frequently asked questions

Do I need to bring anything to the class?

If you can shower and change into clean, light-colored and loose-fitting clothes, that is ideal. But if you are coming straight from work, that’s okay. The most important thing is your sincere aspiration to discover something new within yourself.

Will I have to sit on the floor?

There is something special about sitting on the floor (on a cushion!), but we have chairs as well. Use whichever suits you.

Why are the classes free?

Well, there are a few reasons. First of all, what price can we put on peace and happiness? They are priceless. Second, we are not giving you anything. Meditation is something you already have within yourself and just need to uncover. Finally, we find there is great joy to be found in selfless service to others.

Who is Sri Chinmoy?

Sri Chinmoy is a fully illumined spiritual teacher who taught us — through his own life, through his philosophy, and through his encouragement — to endeavour to live extraordinary lives. For more information about his life and philosophy, go here.

Who are you?

We are a community of people like yourself — office workers, electricians, programmers, small business owners, Uber drivers, and even statisticians — who were searching for something higher and deeper, who wanted more meaning in life, and decided to follow Sri Chinmoy’s path of self-discovery through inner meditation and outer service.
