In August 2005, Sri Chinmoy spoke during the opening ceremony of the US leg of the World Harmony Run (now Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run), which was held in New York’s Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, just across from the UN secretariat building.

Excerpt from the interview:

“The World Harmony Run is a prayerful and soulful journey to enter into the world of universal peace. We are praying to God to guide us, lead us and make us feel that we belong to one home, one heart and one life. This world of ours has everything save and except peace. There are many ways to bring about world peace but we feel our way is the way of prayers and meditations. Our prayers and our meditations are helping us to arrive at the destined goal and this goal is a universal oneness-heart-home.

May God bless us with His infinite Bounty so that we can fulfill His own Vision, in and through us. What He expects most is a oneness-heart-home. We feel, inwardly and outwardly as well, our World Harmony Run is serving the world community to become a oneness-heart-home. Not only  participants and well-wishers, but also those who are not yet born will be able to feel the beauty, the fragrance of our prayerful, soulful, humble efforts. At the beginning of our journey’s start, millions and millions of years ago, we were one. And we feel at the end of our journey’s close, again we shall become one, one, one.”
