Mr. Sri Chinmoy Sri Chinmoy Centre 85-45 149 Street Jamaica Hills, Queens, N.Y. 11435

Dear Sri Chinmoy:

It was with great pleasure that I received your copy of our visit last May.

As long as men can meet on the grounds of brotherhood and mutual respect, there is hope for our very troubled world.

Your thoughts and writings are very beautiful and portray a soul very sensitive to the Will of God and His "Divine Plan" for all of us. Your achievement and magnitude of spirit in meditation are evident in the depth of your thoughts. There is no doubt in my mind that you are a true and dedicated disciple of God. I believe God works through all men — in different ways — giving to each of us a portion of Eternal Truth, asking us to draw from His light as well as all peoples in our quest for "Truth".

Respectfully, Frank J. Longo, Sr. Mayor
