Where there is love, there is peace, a great force which was lost and has to be researched from within.

If there is a need, then it’s peace and let’s make the commitment to deepen our connection with the self and also with the Source … let’s first stop the war that’s going on in our minds.

Peace constitutes not only a thought but also an action. Real action of peace crosses over religious differences, color and caste. Humanity, love and service are the 3 pillars of peace. Let’s lend a hand of help to the needy and achieve the ultimate goal of peace, giving a better world for our children.
