My Prayerful Salutations To The United Nations – Part III
Last modified December 20, 2012
This selection includes performances on drums from Africa and India, different synthesizers, cello, ocarina and piano. The performances are at once sweet and powerful, subtle yet determined in their attempt at manifesting a spirit of world-oneness through music.
Here are some of Sri Chinmoy’s thoughts on the universality of music:
“When somebody is singing or playing music, it is very easy for us to identify with it because we are on the same level. But music can be found everywhere. Music is oneness with God’s Infinity, Eternity and Immortality. Music is a universal language. We do not need any other language. I do not have to learn Portuguese. You do not have to learn Bengali. God has created a universal language, and that is music. Because it is universal, it has to be inside any material object.”
– Sri Chinmoy
We are grateful to Sri Chinmoy for this soulful offering.
Sri Chinmoy offered concerts to honour the United Nations because he felt the United Nations can play an important role in bringing about world peace and world oneness.
The outer message of the United Nations is peace.
The inner message of the United Nations is love.
The inmost message of the United Nations is oneness.
– Sri Chinmoy
