In March of 1979 friends and colleagues of Albert Einstein joined Sri Chinmoy: the Peace Meditation at the United Nations in observing the scientist’s centennial in two commemorative programmes .
At the first, held in co-operation with Princeton University, members of the Princeton community gathered in the University Chapel on 18 March 1979.
At the second on 20 March, United Nations diplomats and staff met in the Dag Hammarskjold Auditorium at United Nations Headquarters in New York.
Featured in both programmes were songs Sri Chinmoy had dedicated to Einstein, several composed to the words of the scientist .
