Peace Day Celebrations in Mauritius
As the country was Covid-19 free since the month of June, the Brahma Kumaris of Mauritius was able to celebrate the International Day of Peace through numerous events. The peace events held throughout the island by the Brahma Kumaris branches observed strict sanitary rules and barrier gestures. It should also be noted that the country had and is still suffering from an ecological disaster due to an oil spillage in its lagoon and that this tragedy raised lots of concern for the protection of our eco resources. More online events were used to spread the message of peace, as some venues were restricted in terms of attendance and people are more used to such technology.
On 21st September there was an interfaith dialogue and prayer for world peace with the participation of different communities which made a bouquet and harmony of the rainbow island. Mr. S. Bhunsee, President of the Flacq District Council, graced the function.
BK Neeru performed the candle lighting ceremony along with faith representatives. After the dialogue, BK students demonstrated practical examples of how we can live a peaceful life through dance, song, skit and meditation.
