About the Sri Chinmoy Centre
Inspired by Sri Chinmoy's teachings and way of life, his students have established many branches of the Sri Chinmoy Centre around the world.
The Sri Chinmoy Centre is a leading teaching centre in meditation worldwide. At Sri Chinmoy's request, all our classes are offered free of charge, because spirituality is our birthright, and it can never be bought or sold. Information about our upcoming classes can be found on our website hugleidsla.org.
The Sri Chinmoy Centre serves as a spiritual home for its members. Its members come together regularly for spiritual activities including meditation and singing.
The Centre also sponsors free public presentations of spiritual arts, including concerts, exhibitions and poetry readings. We also are very involved in sports and athletic events.
“You can change your life. You need not wait years or even months for this change. It begins the moment you dive into the sea of spirituality. Try to live the life of spiritual discipline for a day, a single day. You are bound to succeed.”
The Sri Chinmoy centre in Iceland
The Sri Chinmoy Centre in Iceland was established in January, 1974. Later that same year, Sri Chinmoy visited the country for the first time.
Since its establishment the Centre has organised lectures and concerts held by Sri Chinmoy in the country, as well as given courses on meditation and the spiritual life to thousands of Icelanders. The Centre has published several of Sri Chinmoy’s literary works in Icelandic, and produced recordings of his music.
Sri Chinmoy founded the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team, to enable the Centre to put on races to server the running community. In Iceland, we organise the annual 5 km Vatnsmýrarhlaup race. We also practice running and several other sports, such as swimming and soccer, as part of our own spiritual discipline.
Members of the Sri Chinmoy Centre in Iceland have opened enterprises where they can serve the public in a meditative atmosphere, such as the café/vegetarian restaurant Ecstasy's Heart-Garden and the world music store Sangitamiya. The staff members at these two enterprises can provide information regarding upcoming meditation classes.
