In 1984 students from Australia recorded various melodies composed by Sri Chinmoy on “Peace – God’s Beauty in His Oneness-Home” from the songbook Never Say No. The recordings were made with a variety of western classical instruments, such as French horn, alto recorder, guitar, flutes, trumpets, tuba, bells and keyboards.
On March 24, 1984, Sri Chinmoy offered his first major Peace Concert, entitled “God’s Beauty in His Oneness-Home”, in which 8,000 seekers attended. It took place in the Kölner Sporthalle in Cologne, Germany. At the end of the three-hour event, the Master told the audience:
“Beloved Germany, breathlessly I am bowing to your soul. Soulfully I am loving your heart. Devotedly I am admiring your life. To me, stupendous is your soul, generous is your heart and precious is your life.”
He said that since Germany has offered to the world the universal music, “music is therefore your universal birthright. An unconditional oneness-heart is also your birthright.”
Sri Chinmoy held all together series of 20 peace concerts in several cities around the world that year as part of an international programme commemorating his 20 years in the West. In addition to the March to the Cologne concert, other performances were scheduled for New York and Boston in April, Washington D.C. in May, Chicago in June, San Juan in July, Los Angeles in August, Paris and London in October and Toronto in November.
