Members of the Peace Meditation at the United Nations have long supported and encouraged the World Harmony and Peace Runs since they were founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1987. They have found the goals of the run much in keeping with the deepest longing for peace as envisaged in the UN Charter. When their work and personal schedules have allowed members of the meditation group at the UN in NY have also demonstrated their appreciation of the “oneness” spirit at additional locations. Some have traveled great distances to participate in runs and related ceremonies at various events around the world.
