Question: You have a centre in San Juan. What is its name?

Sri Chinmoy: Aum Centre, spelled A-U-M.

Does this name have a particular meaning?

Sri Chinmoy: Yes, AUM is supposed to be, and actually is, the mother of all our spiritual mantras. A mantra is a syllable or a particular word which we chant or use in order to realise God. By repeating this AUM or a few other mantras, we feel that we can realise God.
