During a spiritual holiday with his students in Mexico, Sri Chinmoy met with Mexican President Lopez Portillo at the presidential residence, Los Pinos, on 22 December 1981. The Sri Chinmoy singers performed a song about Mexico which Sri Chinmoy had composed in Lopez Portillo’s honour. The President said he was “very thrilled to see the name of my country converted into melody and rhythm.” Later he told Sri Chinmoy, “I hope the example that you offer expands through the world.”
