On March 31, 1985 Sri Chinmoy gave his first big concert in the Zurich Hallenstadion, a prestigious hall, where normally large sports events, musicals or pop concerts take place. Sri Chinmoy transformed the hall into a vessel of spiritual manifestation. About 6000 seekers from all over Europe attended the performance that was divided into three parts an lasted for more than three hours. Sri Chinmoy often meditated between the different instruments.

On March 24, 1984, Sri Chinmoy offered his first major PEACE CONCERT, entitled “God’s Beauty in His Oneness-Home”, in which 8,000 seekers from all over Europe attended. It took place in the Kölner Sporthalle in Cologne, Germany, and tickets were free. On March 24th, 2012 the European students of Sri Chinmoy celebrated the 28 year anniversary of this historical concert.
