Sri Chinmoy lifts Xiao Wu Nan (Woolf Shaw) in Nanjing, China. He is the Vice-Chairman of China’s Social, Economic and Cultural Exchange Association, a position that is ranked as a Deputy Minister in the Chinese Government.

Mr. Shaw presents Sri Chinmoy with two scrolls by a famous Chinese calligrapher. He compares the words on one scroll — “The saint comes like rain, which falls to earth just in time” — to Sri Chinmoy’s arrival in China.
