YOUTH – THE FUTURE! Futurist Alvin Toffler said the secret message communicated
In today’s society, the job of a priest remains ever relevant and
Alternative Peace Foundation held an interfaith meditation for peace at the Westville Hindu School today.
The Preamble to the Constitution of UNESCO begins with the following words:
“Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that defences of peace must be constructed.” How true! The preamble correctly diagnoses the problem, but has the remedy been effectively applied?
The Vedic rishis or seers carried the fight for peace in the minds of men when they repeated, again and again, – Let my mind be full of pure and noble thoughts.
Devotees of Vedic culture conclude any prayer or performance of agnihotra (fire ceremony) with the recital of the Shanti Paat or Peace Prayer. There are many mantras in the Vedas appealing for peace, and constant repetition makes a deep impression in the minds of those reciting these mantras. We pay homage to these Vedic rishis at this moment of crisis for peace and chant the Peace Prayer.
May there be peace in the heavenly region and the atmosphere; may peace reign on the earth; let there be coolness in the water; may the medicinal herbs be healing; the plants be peace-giving; may there be harmony in the celestial objects and perfection in eternal knowledge; may everything in the universe be peaceful; let peace pervade everywhere. May that peace abide in me.
May there be peace, peace, peace!
