About Us

Panorama of my Silence Heart Café is inspired by the philosophy of spiritual teacher, composer and poet Sri Chinmoy, who lived in the Briarwood area from the late 1960s until his passing in 2007. The cafe is owned and operated by meditation students of Sri Chinmoy. We aim to create a beautiful, peaceful atmosphere, where people can come and enjoy a coffee, read or study.

“Our philosophy is the acceptance of life for the transformation of life and also for the manifestation of God’s Light here on earth, at God’s choice Hour, in God’s own Way.”
Sri Chinmoy
January 3, 1998

The name ‘Panorama of My Silence Heart’ was suggested by Sri Chinmoy in August 2007 when the café was opened.
