The Fourth of July

Remarks by Sri Chinmoy
on July 3rd, at Aspiration-Ground Jamaica, New York


Tomorrow is a very significant day for the American soul, American heart, American consciousness and American life. Let us all try to be in a very, very high consciousness the entire day.

Those who sing very, very well “America the Beautiful” will sing the song tomorrow. That is my most favourite American song. That song is very, very significant.
