Through his meditations at the UN and his artistic and poetic expressions of peace, Sri Chinmoy brought together members of the international community in dedication to the goal of a global oneness-family. On 13 November 2019 members of the Peace Meditation Group observed the 25th Anniversary of the composing of 700 poems by Sri Chinmoy, subsequently published in the book Peace-Blossom-Fragrance.

The 700 poems on peace in the book were written between 11 and 23 November 1994. They were published in April 1995 in one volume, lovingly and gratefully dedicated by Sri Chinmoy to the UN’s 50th Anniversary. The cover and page borders of the book, as shown here, are composed of birds selected from a series of “Dream-Freedom-Peace-Birds” drawn by Sri Chinmoy beginning in 1992.

The following 13 selections from Peace-Blossom-Fragrance appeared in a small leaflet produced for the observance held on 13 November 2019.

At the Poetry Reading Celebrating the United Nations Year of the Dialogue Among Civilizations, held at the United Nations on 29 March 2001, Sri Chinmoy is introduced by Master of Ceremonies Vijaya Claxton, Vice President of the United Nations SRC Society of Writers.
