Meetings with Father Tom were always very special. They resembled friendship and spirituality for everyone who were present with Sri Chinmoy. Here are some of the precious moments captured in photos:
Sri Chinmoy composed and dedicated a song to the US television programme “God Squad”, featuring Monsignor Thomas Hartman and Rabbi Marc Gellman:
God Squad, God, God!
All love, all joy, no iron rod.
Christianity, Judaism embrace;
Oneness-heart and oneness-life and face.

You have revealed God’s special Plan.
