Sri Chinmoy: America’s hope, America’s promise and America’s freedom — these America can transmit to the world-body today provided America does not claim them as her own personal achievements, but as compassionate boons from above, from the Almighty Father.

Sri Chinmoy, The Bicentennial Flames at the United Nations.First published by Agni Press in 1976.
