World-renowned peace leader and spiritual luminary Sri Chinmoy began a new way of honouring people in 1988 — by lifting them from an honorary platform and offering his prayerful gratitude for their contributions to humanity. He called it Lifting Up the World With a Oneness-Heart.

From 1988 to 2007, Sri Chinmoy honoured more than 8200 different people from all walks of life and many nations in this unique way. Photos and messages from twenty-seven of the most notable luminaries so honoured are included. This lifting award created by Sri Chinmoy had a powerful and deeply moving impact on those so honoured.
