A Letter from Leonard Bernstein

My dear Sri Chinmoy:

It is my pleasure and honor to write you these words of admiration for your astonishing achievements. You are a miraculous model of the abundance in the creative life that we lesser mortals seek, and I can only hope that I may some day meet you and perhaps participate in that cosmic fountain of stillness and profound energy which you inhabit.

Long life to you and your art.

— Leonard Bernstein
