Introduction to Chinmoy's talk1

On this feast of All Saints, 2000
We celebrate the joy and peace
of the saints in bliss
We rejoice in all who work and pray
for the increase of joy and peace
in our world.

It has been the gift: of
to be an instrument of moving hearts
to a deeper reverence
of the one God
from whom all thoughts of peace proceed.

His is a pure and humble spirit
and I am humbled and happy
to greet him on this day of celebration.
