Sri Chinmoy

8/28/13 Diamine Chocolate Brown ink, Stillman & Birn
A while back when I was walking along the Ship Canal in the Fremont neighborhood, I came upon a memorial to Sri Chinmoy, an Indian spiritual master and founder of the World Harmony Run. A plaque at the foot of the memorial, called “Dreamer of World Peace,” includes a poem by Chinmoy and the words “Fremont – Center of the Universe for World Harmony.”
I didn’t have time to sketch the memorial then, but I made note of it. This week’s Urban Sketchers Flickr group theme is “Dreams of a Better Society,” so I thought it was the appropriate time to go back to the Ship Canal and sketch the statue. It was dedicated on Nov. 7, 2010, three years after his death.


  1. Good job on the statue!!! I like your choice of ink for this and the nautical details in the background. Well done!

  2. This is such a lovely composition, Tina. Love it!

    Cheers --- Larry
