Songs of The Soul

Music for Inner Peace

(Admission free)

2 music groups with outstanding musicians from different countries perform
the song compositions of Maestro Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007).

An evening full of magic – with dreamlike melodies and dynamic arrangements.
Let yourself be enchanted by the sounds of soulful music for meditation.

Friday, May 10th – 7.30pm
Venue: Dublin Unitarian Church, St Stephens Green, Dublin 2

To book a seat, please call or text: 085 1450880

Producer and humanitarian Quincy Jones praised the innovation and imagination of Sri Chinmoy’s music, commenting
“Sri Chinmoy is such a brave musician! God puts his hands on very few shoulders. It was definitely on Sri Chinmoy’s shoulder,”
while compatriot and leading Indian musician of the modern era Ravi Shankar declared,“Sri Chinmoy has a tremendous, a fantastic creative urge!”

For Sri Chinmoy, music was more than art, entertainment or even self-expression —it was language of the soul, a bridge from earth to heaven capable of dissolving man-made barriers, closing gaps between cultures, faiths and nations.

Sri Chinmoy himself wrote, “Music is the universal language. We do not have to learn any particular language to communicate with others if we can play soulful music. Soulful music is next to meditation, and it carries the beauty and fragrance of silence, the message of the inner and higher worlds.”

An Evening of Mantras, Music and Meditation – Admission Free

 

Friday, February 15th at 7.30pm

Sri Chinmoy himself wrote, “Music is the universal language. We do not have to learn any particular language to communicate with others if we can play soulful music. Soulful music is next to meditation, and it carries the beauty and fragrance of silence, the message of the inner and higher worlds.”  ‘Soulful music intensifies our meditation. Soulful music expedites our soul’s journey. Soulful music helps the seeker establish his conscious and inseparable oneness with the Supreme Pilot. Therefore I give great importance to music in the spiritual life.’
