Sri Chinmoy’s first Meeting with U Thant

It was always inspiring to see Sri Chinmoy meeting celebrities from all walks of life throughout the world. Former UN secretary U Thant was one the first. Sri Chinmoy met him on February 29, 1972 at the UN Headquarters In New York. At that occasion, U Thant said: “I have been hearing about you from many, many people. Whoever speaks to me about you is all appreciation and admiration, and I personally feel that you have been doing a most significant task for the United Nations. It has been a great privilege for me to see you. Please feel my sincere respect and sincere concern for what you are doing for mankind.”
