Japan is one of Sri Chinmoy’s most favorite countries. His visit in 1992 brought him to the cultural centre Kyoto, the famous Kamakura Buddha statue (where he met the Head Priest, meditated on the Buddha and planted a tree in the garden) and to the capital Tokyo, where more than 10,000 people attended a most successful concert at the Nippon Budokan Hall, where a laser show and a big video screen surrounded the master’s performances. The concert culminated with a striking piano piece and the presentation of Sri Chinmoy’s Japan song that he performed together with all his Japanese students on stage. Length: 1:25 h dvdkv077
