The evening of 14 December 1977 the Peace Meditation Group at the U.N celebrated the universal brotherhood and unity which are evoked in this season of holidays around the world with a programme entitled “Oneness-Earth.”

The programme, which was filmed by CBS-TV f or broadcasting on Christmas Day, included statements by Ambassadors and U. N. officials and the performance of a song written by Sri Chinmoy especially for the occasion.

On display was a painting by Sri Chinmoy entitled “United Nations: the Heart-Home of the World-Body.” The work is dedicated to United Nations efforts for peace and has been recently exhibited around the world as an ambassador of good will and world -oneness.

The full text of the programme* is available in pamphlet form.
