Thank you for that good work—that beautiful meditation. I would like to invite you to continue working with this meditation outline, which we just used, "The Spiritual Work of the United Nations and the Liberation of Humanity", weekly on Fridays. There is a growing international group of people who are using it, and I hope that you will join in using it, too.

Also, you are invited to join us at the United Nations for meditation once a month, based on the monthly Solar Festivals, at the time of the full moon. We meet at Noon inside the United Nations Meditation Room for one half hour of silent meditation and then reassemble just outside the room, in front of the Chagall stained glass window, for another 45 minutes of informal discussion. The next meeting will be on Wednesday, the 12th of November. The schedule of meetings for this year is available on line.

Thank you all for coming and participating in this roundtable and thank you to all within the Working Group of the Spiritual Dimensions of Science and Consciousness who organized this meeting, to our speakers, who were so inspirational, to the volunteers who were so helpful and to the NGO Committee on Spirituality, Values and Global Concerns—to all of you, a hearty "Thank you!"
