Sri Chinmoy welcomes the United States Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations, William J. vanden Heuvel, left, to a Meditation Group programme honouring the late Olympic champion Jesse Owens on 22 April 1980. Shortly after that, vanden Heuvel wrote Sri Chinmoy a note saying that the “tranquil inspiration” he received from the Meditation Group meeting gave him the inner strength and compassion which allowed him to forgive an assailant who physically attacked him at a Security Council meeting a week later. Also pictured, centre, is Ambassador Yehuda Z. Blum of Israel, who attended the programme.
