For the last fifteen years Pradeep, together with his friends and colleagues from the Sri Chinmoy Centre and Madal Bal store, has been conducting free meditation workshops in The Hague. The meditation workshops are based on the teachings of Sri Chinmoy. Pradeep has been working in the Madal Bal store for a long time and was the first and only Dutch person to finish the longest running race in the world: The Self-transcendence 3100 Mile Race. A race of just about 5000 km which he finished in 53,5 days.
When I met my meditation teacher Sri Chinmoy in the spring of 1999 it had a profound effect on my life, inwardly and outwardly. Through meditation I felt a growing sense of happiness and peace in my inner life. Outwardly I was finishing my degree in geology at the time, but when I came to work for a day in the Madal Bal Health food store later that year, I fell in love with its vision, its products, and its customers. After concluding my studies I came to work in the store full time and I still enjoy it tremendously! Through my running training, working with customers and following the latest trends on health food and natural medicine, I have come to know many things about health and healthy lifestyle, both in theory and in practice. I’m happy to share this knowledge with others. Nowadays I work almost exclusively on our wholesale activities, but my office is still in the store. So if you see me you can approach me in the store any time 🙂 .
