Peace Prayer 2016
Today, on 21st September, the whole world remembered the importance of peace with the UN International Day of Peace, and Jadan Ashram was no exception.
Students from the Hostel, some local bhaktas and Ashram sevaks, marked the occasion by gathering at the Peace Tree and then at the nearby Wish-fulfilling Tree, both close to the ashram Hospital, where we performed pujas for peace throughout the entire world.
After conclusion of the ceremonies and the distribution of prashad (blessed food), some words about the purpose of the event, as well as about the symbolic significance of trees were spoken, first by Mahant Swami Premanandji in English and then by Mahant Swami Phul Puriji in Hindi.
Thus was the day commemorated and, hopefully, a little contribution made to achieving global peace.
