In April 2009 Ashrita Furman (NY) and a group of about 100 students of Sri Chinmoy recited one of their master's spiritual poems "Precious" in 111 languages and a new Guinness Record was set. Watch the whole historical performance that took place in the park of the City Hall in Manhatten and enjoy the diversity of cultures (1:04:31 h). Here is the poem:
Precious beyond measure is God's Will,
None can undo its Power.
Precious beyond measure are man's tears,
They alone can hug God's Hour.
Precious beyond measure is man's love,
Unveiling his golden face.
Precious beyond measure is God's Gift:
His all-fulfilling Grace.
- Sri Chinmoy
