Last modified May 7, 2007
Since arriving in America in 1964, Sri Chinmoy has written over 13,000 Bengali songs and almost 7,000 English songs. The great majority of these songs are of a devotional nature.
Music is the universal language. It unites us all in our common humanity. We hope you enjoy these performances.
