On 23 April 1982 the Meditation Group at the United Nations formally congratulated Dr Robert Muller on his appointment as Assistant Secretary-General for Economic and Social Matters. In gratitude for the guidance and support that Dr Muller has offered to the Group over the years, Sri Chinmoy presented him with a plaque and flowers, saying, “This is a humble token of our deepest admiration for you — for what you have been doing not only for the United Nations but for the entire world. We see in you the life of pure dedication and the life of constant inspiration to all of humanity.”

Dr Muller replied, “I would like to express my gratitude for all you have always meant to me. Thank God we have a Meditation Group at the United Nations. Spirituality has to spread.”
