United Nations: Peace Room1


You and I

You have renounced world-bondage to please God;

Therefore, God is pleased with you.

I really mean it.

I have accepted world-suffering to please God;

Therefore, God is pleased with me.

I do hope that you know it.

You have pleased God

By crying for His Self-transcendence Height.

I have known it all along.

I have pleased God

By loving His compassion-fulfilling earth-life.

I am informing you in case you did not know it.

You and I have pleased God soulfully and triumphantly;

Therefore, we are divinely human and humanly perfect.


This a talk given by Sri Chinmoy on 25 March 1975 in the Peace Room of the Church Center for the United Nations.
