About us

About our Centre

In addition to offering free meditation instruction, our members lead multiple businesses and community projects that bring the benefits of meditation into daily life. We aim to serve the public, help create a more unified world, and inspire each human being to become their best self.

Running for Peace

The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is the world’s largest torch relay for peace. The Peace Run often traveled through San Diego on its four month long relay route through North America, where it visited schools, youth and community groups, and government officials spreading the message that we have much more in common than what divides us.

Weekly 2-mile race

Join us Saturdays at 8:00am for an informal 2-mile race at the Sri Chinmoy Peace Garden (2520 Adams Avenue between Arizona and Hamilton, 92116).

All ages and paces are welcome. Whether you are looking to test your fitness with a time trial or just want a casual jog, join us for these free, fun group runs year-round.

Course is an out-and-back along local streets. No entry form required. This weekly fun run is held each week in dozens of cities around the world.

Sri Chinmoy Peace Garden

Inaugurated in 2012, the Sri Chinmoy Peace Garden is open to the community and offers a beautiful, serene setting in which to spend a few moments of contemplation. Located at the busy corner of Adams Avenue and Arizona Street in University Heights, this small park reminds us all to make some time for peace in our busy lives.
