We give a correspondence among a Hamiltonian minimal Lagrangian cone in ${\mathbb C}^{m}$, a Legendrian minimal Legendrian submanifold in the unit sphere $S^{2m-1}(1)$ and a Hamiltonian minimal Lagrangian submanifold in the complex projective space ${\mathbb C}P^{m-1}$. As an application of this result, we prove that a Hamiltonian minimal Lagrangian cone in ${\mathbb C}^{m}$ such that the first Betti number of its link is 0 must be a special Lagrangian cone. Moreover, we construct Hamiltonian minimal (non-minimal) Lagrangian cones in ${\mathbb C}^{3}$ with a toroidal link, which are parametrized by a triple of relatively prime positive integers $(p,q,r)$, and discuss their Hamiltonian stabilities.
