Kyudo is not a sport, Kyudo is a Martial Art form, practised in Japan for centuries. When I was in Kamakura, I was able to visit a Kyudo Training School within one of the main temples of the town. Mamie Mayanaki from Toyko was so kind as to introduce us to this ancient art of Kyudo, where the archer is always in a meditative consciousness and follows a strict set of traditional ceremonies and guidelines. As Mamie states in her interview, you need to practise for 30 years or more to achieve perfection in this field. Filmed by kedarvideo.

Sri Chinmoy was the only spiritual master who used art as a means of communication and manifestation. After a small painting period as a youth he started to create drawings and artwork for over 30 years after he traveled to the west; altogether more than 100,000 acrylic paintings and millions of so called soul-bird drawings. Watch some of his art pieces and pictures showing him creating them.
Sri Chinmoy celebrated his mother Yogamaya's Centenary on April 8, 1994.

Let's enjoy this video and remember these special moments. Filmed by kedarvideo.
Sri Chinmoy was very fond of the big Buddha statue in Kamakura, Japan. He visited the place many times and in 1992 planted a Peace Tree in the garden of the site. Also present was the Head Priest of the temple connected with the "Daibutsu" as the large sculpture is named. Filmed by kedarvideo, Switzerland.
When a spiritual master creates art it is always a good opportunity to meditate. One day during his Christmas vacation in the Hotel Atitlan in Panajahel (Guatemala), Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) made a drawing session, creating so-called Peace-Birds on big paper sheets attached to the window of the hotel. Later he continued with bird drawings in his sketch book. This is the original footage, filmed by kedarvideo Switzerland. Enjoy the creation.
