Interviewer: Why does there seem to be an increase in interest in what meditation can do for mankind? I notice that on the UN Meditation Group book here, they call meditation "Our Hope for Mankind."

Sri Chinmoy: United Nations members have already tried other ways and have not been successful. So now some of them are trying this way, the inner way. The outer way they have tried; through politics and various outer means they have tried to bring about peace. But, unfortunately, they have not succeeded. So now they are trying to cultivate the inner way.
