As part of an international concert tour, entitled ‘Peace: God’s Beauty in His Oneness-Home’, Sri Chinmoy gave 20 free performances in major cities around the world in 1984. This recording is taken from a peace concert in Melbourne.
One of the concerts on September 12, 1984 in Melbourne’s Dallas Brookes Hall attracted a large crowd – so much so that Sri Chinmoy had to give a second concert immediately afterwards for those who couldn’t squeeze in for the first for a total of almost 3,000 people.
Before the concert, Sri Chinmoy also offered a short silent meditation in silence and this invocation to Australia.
“Australia, My Australia,
My Beloved Australia,
I bow to your Inner Pilot Supreme,
I bow to your Fullness-Soul,
I bow to your Oneness-Heart,
I bow to your Vastness-Body
With my soulful Gratitude-Heart.”
Just day before this concert on September 11, the editor and publisher of Australian Runner magazine, Terry O’Halloran, presented Sri Chinmoy with a special award for his contribution to running in Australia. (The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team in Australia organizes a number of running events every year).
