"Meditation is silent, energising and fulfilling."   ~ Sri Chinmoy

Our Centre has been offering free meditation classes for the past 30 years as a community service.  All are welcome - beginners as well as those seeking to further their meditation practice.


The Sri Chinmoy Centre of Vancouver was privileged to present the Songs of the Soul Concert in March 2009, during which accomplished musicians from around the world performed unique arrangements of Sri Chinmoy's compositions. An audience of over 1,000 attended this free concert, which was held at St. Andrew's-Wesley Church.

The beauty, depth and vastness of Sri Chinmoy's music invite each listener to embark upon a journey of soulful self-discovery.








Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team

Sri Chinmoy always encouraged physical fitness as an integral part of spiritual development. A decathlon champion in his youth, Sri Chinmoy himself was an enthusiastic runner, tennis player and weightlifter in his adult life.

The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team hosts over 500 international sporting events annually. One of its most notable events is the   Self-Transcendence Triathlon and Duathlon, which is held annually in Victoria and celebrated its 30th running this year.  Self-Transcendence 2-Mile Run events are weekly fun runs held Saturday mornings at a local track. Contact us for the time and place.

Every two years, the Sri Chinmoy Centre of Vancouver partners with local community groups and officials in staging welcoming ceremonies for the Peace Run, a global torch relay event that promotes harmony and oneness amongst peoples and nations.
