Dear Sri Chinmoy:
I regret the delay in writing you this letter, but I had to leave the country on business the day after our Festival,
The NEW YORK BICENTENNIAL HERITAGE FESTIVAL was a very great success and I must say that your disciples who participated in it (as staff members under the direction of Mr. Steve Hein) were the persons responsible for making the Festival work. We had no practice, no rehearsals, not even a dry run. Indeed, I met for the first time the entire staff the morning of the Festival. Despite this, and because of the efforts of your people, the Festival went off exactly as it was planned and without any problem. What was accomplished that day was probably the best organized event ever to take place in Rockefeller Center and it was made possible by the efforts of your disciples.
I thank you again.
