United Nations Day – signifies a day of universal hope, promise, peace and oneness. 1978 Oct 24Filed under Talks about the UN Heart-Home | UN Anniversaries
On 24 October 1978 the Peace Meditation at the United Nations observed United Nations Day with a programme in the Dag Hammarskjöld Auditorium. Sri Chinmoy made the following remarks on that occasion.
Today is U.N. Day.
What does U.N. Day signify?
It signifies a day of universal hope,
a day of universal promise,
a day of universal peace and a day of universal oneness.
Hope brightens humanity’s present deplorable fate.
Promise encourages humanity’s speed, which embodies success and progress.
Peace enlightens humanity’s age-old ignorance.
And satisfaction, which is founded upon oneness, the oneness-family that we would like to live in,
will one day dawn in our aspiring heart and our dedicated life.
To us, the United Nations is not a mere building,
it is not a mere concept,
it is not wishful thinking or even a dream.
It is a reality which is growing, glowing and manifesting its radiance here, there, all-where,
throughout the length and breadth of the world.
All those who are sincerely crying for a oneness-family, according to their receptivity, are receiving light from the soul of the United Nations.
