Our meditation center is one of the many dozens of meditation centers founded by Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) around the world. With Sri Chinmoy’s encouragement and his idea that the path to self-discovery is one’s free birthright, we started offering free meditation classes in the Pacific Northwest in 1974.
Sri Chinmoy was born in 1931 in Chittagong, Bangladesh (then India) and lived in New York from 1964 to 2007. Sri Chinmoy was a renowned and prolific author, artist, poet, athlete, spiritual leader and a visionary of world peace.
Above all, Sri Chinmoy was a meditation Master, offering the “Path of the Heart” as the simplest way to make rapid spiritual progress. He felt that spirituality is a normal pursuit, as almost everyone yearns for something deeper in themselves at some time in their lives. By meditating on the spiritual heart, the seeker can discover his own inner treasures of peace, joy, light and love.
