The 2016 Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run has begun its journey across different continents, with the European leg recently starting in Portugal. Later in the year, this global relay torch run will also take place in north America, Australasia, Asia and Latin America.

November 1st, 2015 will be the 40th anniversary of Sri Chinmoy's poetry series 'Transcendence-Perfection'
This unique collection of poems were written by Sri Chinmoy during a single 24 hour period in New York. The poems were then collected and published in a single edition, within a short space of time.
A few weeks later on December 20, 2015, Sri Chinmoy spontaneously set 99 of these poems to music - they were later published in the songbook - 'Transcendence-Perfection'.
