In the spring of 1992, Sri Chinmoy offered these seven Peace Concerts in his Peace: Divinity’s Dream on Earth tour. The concerts were performed at venues around the East coast of the United States.

This album includes various performances from 17 of Sri Chinmoy’s favourite instruments; in total it offers around two hours of music from an original double tape recording.
