GLOBAL PEACE DAY
On 11-11-1911 there was a coronation function celebrated for the then King. During the course of celebration, at 11:11 am a question was occurred in the mind of Paranjothi Mahan , “Why are all celebrating this function so grandly?” The reply was that ‘the King is great’. Then another question cropped up “If the King is above all of us, who is greater than the King?” He got the answer that God is the greatest. This answer developed a sudden Strong longing in his heart to see God. This longing intensified and this Divinity led to the blossoming of “Paranjothi Mahan”. This day is celebrated even today as “Gnana Udaya Day ( the Dawn of Wisdom Day). Then later this day was declared to celebrate as ‘Global Peace Day’ by paranjothi Mahan. From his life time this day is being observed as Universal Peace Day.
The purpose of celebrating the Global Peace Day is to reinforce the Universal Peace Day which was observed every year on the 11th November at 11 am.
It is well known to all that after the World War I , in 1918 it was declared 11th November as the Peace Day with the high intention that there should be no war as such.
The primary vision of our Foundation is Universal Peace through Individual Peace. As such we are trying to fulfil this vision through various missions. One such missions is to make every individual to observe one minute’s silence from 11.11 am to 11.12 am everyday for the sake of universal peace. This one minute’s silence observed by large number of people will bring forth a great global effect of Peace within. The equation runs as follows. A large number of people gathered in one place vibrate a single thought (of Peace) at the same time, will bring that thought into action because of the power of collective thought.
By this process the waves of peace vibration will cover the entire country and thereby will enter all the nations around the world
The quest for Global Peace has proven elusive and is old as mankind.
“ONLY THE DEAD HAVE SEEN THE END OF WAR” – Socrates
The absence of individual peace is perhaps the main cause for lack of global peace.
“WHEN WE CHANGE, THE WORLD WILL CHANGE” — Mahathma Gandhiji
Let the change start today within each of us to bring unity to all. Let Love, Compassion and Forgiveness form part of our daily lives, to bring Peace and Unity to this world. Unified action is extremely crucial as we face numerous global issues such as Global Warming, Climate Change, Pollution and Population Explosion. Love and Harmony are the foundation for peaceful Global co-existence. We have all been vested by the Almighty with a great duty in this world to bring peace and unite as one. To cite Astronaut Neil Armstrong “Our commitment is a small step for us individuals but a giant step for mankind’s quest for Global Peace”.
To create awareness, if there is righteousness in the heart there will be beauty in character. If there is beauty in the individual there will be love and harmony at home. If there is love and harmony at home there will be unity in the community. When there is unity in the community there will be order in the Nation. When nations are in harmonious order there will be Global Peace.
Let us take the first step by inculcating in humankind, silence, love and harmony towards Global Peace by repeating the following:
“I AM – PEACE KEEPER
I AM – FAMILY PEACE KEEPER
I AM – NATIONAL PEACE KEEPER
I AM – GLOBAL PEACE KEEPER
“SO POWERFUL IS THE LIGHT OF UNITY AND LOVE THAT ILLUMINATES THE WHOLE EARTH”
