Global Peace Initiative

"Vasudha eva kutumbaka - The earth indeed is one family” is the declaration of the ancient texts. Are we on a warpath to falsify this statement, through our never-ending wars and killing? What will our future generations say about us as their ancestors? As much as we glorify our ancestors, they will define our era as yet another phase of the dark ages of human civilization, where their ancestors knew not the basic principles of living in compassion and forgiveness."  Ammaji

The Global peace initiative invites us to look at the role we as individuals play in maintaining peace and harmony across the globe. We will study the Shanti mantras and their impact on nature as provided by the Rishis (seers). We will explore the different types of problems caused in daily life by seen and unseen forces as well as the impact of war during ancient times. We will study the difference between good and bad karma and lessons learned from the Itihasas and Puranas.

As part of the Global Peace Initiative, we offer proper use of puja and prayers to calm ourselves and enhance both inner and outer peace. We look at various ways to work in a cohesive and calm manner both at work and at home, and explore various elements of stress and how to manage and relieve it. We will examine the results of performing good karma, study techniques to observe our likes and dislikes, and learn prayers to work with them.

Environmental Peace

 

"Blessed were those ancestors who could live in a culture that cherished nature and looked after it like their own family. While earth and rivers were revered as Divine Mother, mountains and skies were considered Divine Father. Life as lived in birds, animals and amphibians was respected as one’s own, and hence protected. Where has that sacred culture of India gone? Why have we become deaf to the Vedic mantras that declare life is One and it is sacred!"  Ammaji

Through the Environmental initiative, we reflect upon the knowledge given by the ancient Rishis (seers) in the Vedic texts about the various aspects of nature, using the five elements — earth, air, wind, fire, and ether — as the basis of our exploration. We will not delve deeply into the vast ocean of this knowledge, but share some ideas to lead you into the journey with us. We will together try to explore the natural world through the eyes of the Devatas (Gods) and Rishis.

We will explore our emerging questions by understanding how the Vedic slokas (verses) and mantras (holy chants) are relevant to the modern age. May they also encourage us to think about our impact on the environment and how to conserve its purity.

Interfaith Peace
