Sri Chinmoy meditates at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima, Japan. In the background is the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall — now commonly called the Genbaku Dōmu or the A-Bomb Dome — which stood at the hypocentre of the devastating nuclear blast on the morning of August 6, 1945.


Remakks by Sri Chinmoy


I was so moved by our visit to Hiroshima. There I felt spiritual grandeur, peace and tranquility. Some of the bomb victims’ spirits are still hovering around and trying to take revenge, but most of the souls that were there when the bomb dropped have gone back to the souls’ world, so for them the story is over.

A Painting of Jesus Christ

Sri Chinmoy comments on a painting of Jesus Christ displayed in the function room of the Inter-Continental Hotel, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on Christmas Eve


Painting by the American artist Warner Elias Sallman, 1940


The artist has really captured the consciousness of Jesus Christ. In Puerto Rico we had a very large reproduction of this painting. It looks one hundred per cent like Jesus Christ.
