Sri Chinmoy

Sri Chinmoy (born 1931), né Chinmoy Kumar Ghose, is an Indian philosopher and religious teacher (guru). He was the youngest of seven children, born in Shakpura in East Bengal (now Bangladesh), and moved to New York City in 1964. He now lives in Jamaica in Queens County, New York. In 1944, after both his parents had died, 12-year-old Chinmoy entered the Sri Aurobindo ashram, a spiritual community near Pondicherry in South India. Here he spent the next twenty years in spiritual practice. For a while, he was an interfaith chaplain at the United Nations. As with many spiritual leaders, there are allegations that his group is a cult organization.
