6. From Shawn Wong, 22 April 1998

Dear Sri Chinmoy:

Let me take a moment of your time to thank you for a very inspiring evening of music, meditation, art, poetry, and dialogue when you were here at the University of Washington. You are more than what our award stipulated as the “Light of Asia”; you are, in your efforts to promote peace and harmony in the world, the light of the world and of our conscience. I am pleased that our department was able to sponsor the evening and host your visit. Many students found the evening most inspiring and moving. Please keep up your good work and come back and visit us again.


— Shawn Wong — Professor and Chair
