On many occasions members of the Peace Meditation group at the United Nations have assisted with coordination of Peace and Harmony Run activities and some have traveled to various countries on their vacation time to participate.

The  Sri Chinmoy “Oneness-Home” Peace and Harmony Torch relay runs’ multi-year support for Interfaith Harmony is well documented. This was recognized and encouraged by the President (2009 – 2011) of UNESCO General Conference in his video message for the 25th Anniversary of the runs founding by Sri Chinmoy..

“The World Harmony (and Peace)  Run has been welcomed by people of many different religions, beliefs and faith-based communities.

“Passing the Harmony Torch is a simple, tangible and powerful way to express love of one’s neighbour.

“Conveying this message of interfaith harmony and understanding in churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and other places of worship will surely help foster a culture of peace and a growing feeling of universal oneness.”
