We warmly welcome you to the online home of the Sri Chinmoy Centre in South Africa.


The Sri Chinmoy Centre brings together people of all backgrounds in the common pursuit of lasting inner happiness and fulfilment through a life of spirituality and service. In our modern world, it is often difficult to maintain balance in the face of so many outer demands. Sri Chinmoy’s teachings offer a way of life based upon the harmonious development of our entire being – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual – leading to the blossoming of our many potentials and to a sense of inner fulfilment.

In South Africa, the Sri Chinmoy Centre is based in Johannesburg where we offer regular free meditation workshops at several venues around the city. We also offer free meditation workshops in Cape Town. At Sri Chinmoy's own request, all meditation classes are offered free of charge, in the conviction that spirituality is a universal birthright that can never be bought or sold.

"You can change your life. You need not wait years or even months for this change. It begins the moment you dive into the sea of spirituality. Try to live the life of spiritual discipline for a day, a single day. You are bound to succeed." - Sri Chinmoy


Sri Chinmoy visited South Africa twice and was very grateful for the friendship of two of South Africa's great leaders, President Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

You will fail.
Try to love the world.

Changed forever.
