From Philip W Owen, June 1998

Greetings \

Congratulations to Sri Chinmoy to celebrate the occasion of your receiving the “Dreamer of Peace” award from the University of British Columbia.

Your dedication and tireless work for peace encourages us all to pursue our own vision of peace.

Annually, the Vancouver Sri Chinmoy Marathon team organises several athletic events dedicated to increasing awareness of the need for individual and global peace. Many Vancouverites participate in these events and we have been pleased to proclaim “Sri Chinmoy Peace Run Day” for the last six runs.

I commend your efforts in bringing the dream of peace to all the citizens of the world.

Welcome to Vancouver and best wishes in all your future endeavours.

Yours truly,

— Philip W Owen — Mayor
