My dear United Nations

My dear United Nations

My dear friend United Nations,

You have until now played the role of a patient earphone. How I wish that from now on you will play the role of a brave microphone. I promise I shall gather a large throng, not only to hear you, but also to listen to you.

My dear friend United Nations,

You know perfectly well what your role is. Fortunately, I know too. Since the rest of the world does not know your role, and since you do not want to tell the world about it yourself, I feel that it is my bounden duty to make the world aware of your unprecedented and supreme role on earth. Your role is justification. Justification of what? Justification of man’s inborn oneness-divinity. Justification of whom? Justification of man the evolving God and God the manifesting man.

My dear friend United Nations,

Your silence-role the world badly misunderstands. It thinks that either you are weak or you are indifferent. I know unmistakably that you are neither weak nor indifferent. You are divinely strong and supremely concerned. It thinks that either you are ignorant or you are useless. I know unmistakably that you are neither ignorant nor useless. You are divinely wise and supremely useful.

My dear friend United Nations,

You are only thirty-two years old. This undeniable fact everybody knows. But there are very few who know or want to know that your young shoulders are more than willing to carry the measureless loads of human beings who want to dissociate themselves from their false friend and real enemy, ignorance-night.

Yours in the Compassion-Light of the Absolute Supreme,

Sri Chinmoy
