Gratitude is receptivity, the receptivity that acknowledges others’ gifts, others’ love and concern. Each time we express gratitude, we expand our hearts. - Sri Chinmoy

In 1965 the United Nations Meditation Group (begun by Sri Chinmoy, a writer & spiritual leader) created World Gratitude Day. During Thanksgiving dinner at the International East-West Center in Hawaii, attendees pledged to hold a Gratitude Gathering the following September 21st in their home countries. The purpose was to express appreciation to individuals and to groups that have made the world a better place to live - and it became an annual event. (source:

Of course, you don’t have to wait for Gratitude Day each year, but what a nice way to raise awareness of the concept. It’s also a perfect day for us to start raising some awareness about Thankfulfor!
