TO PROCLAIM MASTER SRI CHINMOY, AS PEACE AMBASSADOR IN PUERTO RICO
Sri Chinmoy is the central figure behind a profoundly spiritual and creative movement throughout the world and whose realisation has been manifested in and through his unending

Through his worldwide series of Peace Concerts and lectures, Sri Chinmoy is constantly awakening the divine qualities and true peace-loving self of humanity;

His continuous work for world peace has been recognised and praised by the General Secretaries of the United Nations: U Thant, Kurt Waldheim, and Perez de Cuellar, as well as by the Panama government upon granting him its highest honour, the “Order of Vasco Núñez de Balboa” and by Pope Paul VI;
For the past 10 years Puerto Rico has benefited from the valuable contributions of Sri Chinmoy as a spiritual leader, a humanist, and master track and field promoter through his meditation centre on the Island;
Sri Chinmoy, who has rendered such unparalleled selfless service to uplift the consciousness of humanity at large, is deserving of our highest recognition, respect and gratitude:
