Sri Chinmoy thanks Dr Carlos Romulo, Foreign Minister of the Philippines, for his participation in a programme held in November 1977 by the Meditation Group at the United Nations, commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the Meditation Room at U.N. Headquarters. On that occasion Dr Romulo, who has been active in the United Nations since its inception, said, “All too often passion and conflict rule the day. It is in such moments that we need meditation to look into ourselves and to encounter our God so we may cleanse our spirit and gain needed strength.”
