Kind words from Javier Pérez de Cuéllar

United Nations Secretary-General, 1982-1991

“What is happening to me now is that I am receiving the inspiration of Sri Chinmoy, who is actually, I would say, the heart of the United Nations—because in all the years I was Secretary-General, and even before I was Secretary-General, he was always with us. Even if he was not present, his message was with us, and we were, as I said before, being inspired by him.”

Dr. Pérez de Cuéllar 1
26 May 2005, Paris

"In your meditation you see beyond the superficial distinctions of race, sex, language or religion, as the Charter encourages us to do. You concentrate on the truths and ideals which unite all mankind: the longing for peace, the need for compassion, the search for tolerance and understanding among men women of all nations."

Secretary-General Pérez de Cuéllar 2
13 January 1983

"Your energetic efforts in the cause of peace have again been brought to my attention. The current Peace Run ’89 is a case in point. This is but a brief note to express appreciation for all your support of the United Nations and its work."

Secretary-General Pérez de Cuéllar 3


"It was indeed a pleasure to receive you earlier this month and I warmly appreciated your kind expression of support for my endeavours in the cause of peace and international understanding."

Secretary-General Pérez de Cuéllar 4
Letter 28 January 1983


"Towards these same goats of human togetherness and world peace, you have dedicated your life and made invaluable contributions. Through the global Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run which you Initiated while I was serving as Secretary-General of the United Nations, as well as through the Sri Chinmoy Peace-Blossoms family in which 123 nations including Peru are now participating and also with your international Peace Concert series you are helping to foster a new and vibrant culture of peace which our planet so urgently and critically requires."

Secretary-General Pérez de Cuéllar 5
3 February 2001

"We must never forget that all our activities are aimed at fulfilling the lofty principles of the Charter. We must not lose sight of these objectives despite the frequent difficulties we encounter along the way. In recalling the fundamental goals which inspire our work, you are helping to re-affirm our commitment to the Organisation and its purposes."

Secretary-General Pérez de Cuéllar 6 13 January 1983

"It was indeed a pleasure to receive you earlier this month and I warmly appreciated your kind expression of support for my endeavours in the cause of peace and international understanding."

Letter 28 January 1983

Message of the Secretary-General to the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run

"It is my pleasure to greet the organisers and participants in this remarkable event.

Your aim is to foster harmony and peaceful co-operation among nations through increased human contacts. Your essential message is that we, the members of the human family, despite our many differences, have infinitely much more to unite and bond us together. Nothing could be more in consonance with the essential purpose of the United Nations Organisation.

Accordingly, as United Nations Secretary-General, I wish you every success in this endeavour, for you are all ambassadors in the cause of peace."

Sri Chinmoy to Javier Pérez de Cuéllar

UN Pilot

O UN Pilot, Javier Pérez de Cuéllar!
Yours is the silver journey
To the Oneness-Fulness-Harbour.
Calmness-mind, softness-heart,
Boldness-life and brightness-soul.
Wisdom within, wisdom without:
A splendid role! 9
