19 August 1995, Julia Rickman High School, New York, New YorkPeace Concert dedication by Sri Chinmoy:
The United Nations has completed fifty years. Our Peace Meditation at the United Nations has completed twenty-five years. I wish to offer twenty-five million gratitude-flowers from the very depth of my heart to the soul of the United Nations.
O soul of the United Nations, do bring to the fore your indomitable will-power to transform the earth-bound consciousness of humanity into a Heaven-free consciousness. Alas, there are many, many human beings on earth who are not taking you seriously anymore. O United Nations, do prove to these unaspiring human beings that they are utterly mistaken. The Absolute Lord Supreme has entrusted you with His Vision Supreme to change the face and fate of mankind. His own Promise in and through you He will without fail fulfil at His own choice Hour.
