Diana, Princess of Wales
Diana, Empress of the World.

I wish to offer you gratitude from the inmost recesses of my heart for writing me such a compassionate, inspiring and encouraging letter. For ordinary mortals, birthdays come and birthdays go. You — being an immortal figure in the world of sleepless compassion, breathless concern for humanity’s safety, happiness and progress — will forever shine bright, brighter and brightest in the galaxy of immortals.

Newsday, which is next to the New York Times in importance and popularity, has voiced forth something soul-stirring, heart-elevating and life-illumining as to where you stand in the heart of America the Beautiful. According to my aspiration-heart, you are not only the Queen of American hearts, but also the unparalleled Queen of the universal heart. Newsday says you will be, but to me you already are.

Enclosed is also an article quite favourable to you from a French magazine.

With deepest appreciation and admiration,

Sri Chinmoy
