Zulu King Welcomes Sri Chinmoy
Durban, South Africa – The King of the Zulu Nation, His Majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini Zulu, flew in from his palace in Nongoma Jan. 23 to deliver the welcoming address at Sri Chinmoy’s Durban peace concert.
“The visit of Sri Chinmoy and his peace group is a fountain of inspiration for us,” the King declared.
At a reception following the concert, he told the peace leader: “Brother, Brother, you cannot imagine what you have done for me and for our country! Only a few – not many – men of peace like you we need to bring peace to our country.”
The concert, held at City Hall, was sponsored by the Hindu Maha Sabha, the cultural and quasi-political organisation representing the Indian community in South Africa.
As part of the event, the chairperson of the Executive Council of the Durban Metropolitan Area, Obed Mlaba, announced that the Durban region had joined the family of Sri Chinmoy Peace-Blossoms.
He told Sri Chinmoy: “For us, you represent the power of the heart and the spirit of God within each human being as we strive to bring goodness and peace into our lives.”
