Chennai, September 24

 

People from over 100 nations participated in an online meditation festival called ‘Ekam World Peace Festival’ in September.

Over 20 million participants and prominent people from the world of politics, science, sports, and culture took part in the festival.

Conceived by Sri Preethaji and Sri Krishnaji, the three-day event started with a “Peace for Healing Economic Unrest” meditation on September 17 at Ekam headquarters, Chittor.

 

The meditation focussed on alleviating the economic inequality and suffering ushered in by the pandemic, around the world.

The programme is titled ‘Peace for Healing Division’.

 

The sessions have been well grounded in Ekam’s philosophy of “Peace for All”, including the planet we inhabit.

Explaining the significance of meditation, Sri Krishnaji said: “As we connect to Ekam — the oneness field of consciousness and meditate for peace, Ekam will amplify the peace energy generated by our collective meditation and radiate it back into our families, work places, communities and to all living beings.”

 

The peace festival, which began its journey three years ago, has witnessed overwhelming response and participation from world leaders and celebrities including, Erik Solheim, Norwegian diplomat and politician, Kailash Satyarthi, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Mithali Raj, cricketer, John L Petersen, futurist and founder Arlington Institute, Gregg Braden, best-selling author, Meng Foon, New Zealand’s race relations commissioner, and Saina Nehwal, badminton champion.

Some of the notable names attending the event this year included New York Times best-selling author, physicist and neuroscientist Dr Joe Dispenza, the first ever refugee to be elected to New Zealand parliament, Gloriz Ghahraman and Secretary General of Global Alliance for A Sustainable Planet  Satya S Tripathi.
