Part IV: Creativity: the amalgam of sorrows and joys, University of Victoria

From Lynda Gammon and Dr Harold Coward, 27 April 1998

27 April 1998

Dear Sri Chinmoy:

It gives us great pleasure to invite you as a Visiting Artist to the University of Victoria on June 3, 1998, on behalf of the Faculty of Fine Arts and the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society. We welcome this opportunity to extend our invitation to a poet, artist and musician of your caliber.

We have arranged to hold your Peace Concert in the David Lam Auditorium at 7:30 pm on June 3, and we will display your poetry and Peace Birds in the foyer.

We will be honoured to present you with a plaque entitled Sri Chinmoy: A Student of Peace for sharing your wisdom with millions of people worldwide. Your work is an example of the unimaginable creative potential which we all possess but which we rarely have access.

We feel very happy to be able to sponsor your visit to our campus.

With sincere regards,

Lynda Gammon, Dean of Fine Arts

Dr. Harold Coward, Director, Centre for Studies in Religion and Society
