Let tex2html_wrap_inline12 be a minimal submanifold in tex2html_wrap_inline14. In this note, we show that L is Legendrian if and only if for any tex2html_wrap_inline18 the restriction to L of tex2html_wrap_inline22 satisfies D f=2(n+1)f. In this case, 2(n+1) is an eigenvalue of the Laplacian with multiplicity at least tex2html_wrap_inline28. Moreover if the multiplicity equals to tex2html_wrap_inline28, then tex2html_wrap_inline32 is totally geodesic.
