As a spiritual guide to followers worldwide, Sri Chinmoy spread a message of peace through his lectures, his writings, his meetings with world leaders like Pope Paul VI and Nelson Mandela.

The charismatic but quirky Chinmoy did not stop there: There was weightlifting -- followers claimed the slight guru hoisted 7,000 pounds (3,175 kilograms) with one arm. And music -- he wrote more than 20,000 songs. And illustrations -- he sketched more than 1 million "peace birds."
