World Gratitude Day is pleased to honor

Sri Chinmoy

Who has enhanced the spirit of globalism with his compassion, creativity and nobility of spirit.

Whose being and achievements reflect the spirit of our Proclamation

Whereas humanity has come to recognize devotion and allegiance to immediate family, to clan, to city, to state, and to nation, and now must experience the concept of globalism, and

Whereas words of praise and positive thoughts generate dynamic harmony, and

Whereas decisions made from a grateful, heart are endowed with. intrinsic wisdom and engender prosperity, and

Whereas gratitude, the opposite of “taking for granted," is a positive-emotion which creates good will, is a basic emotion, which is indigenous to all people, is a peace producing feeling.

And Whereas September 2lst is a special day. It is arc equinox: one of the two times of the year when, the sun passes over the equator and night and day are everywhere of equal length and everyone is equal under the sum.

Therefore let us proclaim World gratitude Day, a holiday for all peoples, a day of meditation for all religions, a day of celebration for all humanity, united by knowledge of a simultaneously shared emotion, a day when triumph of the spirit can make a world community.

Gather with a few friends Be aware of being grateful (To whom and for what is personal) Know that the emotion of gratitude is being shared globally.
