Kind words from religious and spiritual figures

- Pope Paul VI, (March 22nd, 1972)
“You are part of the spiritual force of love that emanates from God and which will transform the evil of this world into its counterpart. Thank you for persisting and going on, going on. Perhaps the world continues in existence only because of people like yourselves who help to hold it in being.”
- Archbishop Desmond Tutu (March 16th, 2004)

- Pir Vilayat Khan (Apr. 23rd, 1989)

"Sri Chinmoy is trying to bring down peace to the entire world... Whereever he goes, he (Sri Chinmoy) is a direct sign of peace for all who see him. He can bring all the nations and the different cultures into one. To me the path of oneness and loving mercy of Sri Chinmoy is fully and totally one with the path of Lord Buddha. Sri Chinmoy is simply on our tiny earth here and now to share the same loving kindnes, mercy and spiritual power."
