Invitation to Sri Chinmoy (extract)

December 24, 2003

Dear Respected Sri Chinmoy:

On behalf of the Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions, I am honored to extend an invitation to you to participate in the opening plenary for the upcoming Parliament of the World's Religions, to be held in Barcelona on July 7, 2004.

Specifically, we are asking that you provide a five to seven minute opening meditation of silence and music. We think such a starkly singular and wordless presence will be the perfect entry for participants into the Parliament experience. And we can think of no one better to do it than you.

Peace,

Rev. Dirk Ficca

Executive Director
