Peace Message from H. H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar,
Orissa, India, on the UN International Peace Day
21 September 2008
I'm happy to be with you all joining you from the other
part of the world for this peace conference and this
important day of the United Nations International Peace
We are all so fortunate that we could find some peace
with ourselves. Now we have a challenge to reach out to
all those who are not at peace with themselves as well
as those countries and those parts of the world where
there is a lot of disturbances. They are deprived of peace
and we all have that responsibility to bring peace to the
every nook and corner of the world.
Unless every member of our family is peaceful our peace
is not complete and we would like to have a complete peace.
So there are peace needed in three levels.
One is inner peace, we all should have our mind peaceful
so that we be can be dynamic in our actions and our
thoughts are becoming more positive when we are peaceful.
Second is peace in our immediate environment, in our
family, friends circle, you know, both places.
The third level of peace is peace between the nations, peace
between the continents of nations which is most important.
You know, today the arms race that is happening between
the countries have to be put to an end. So nuclear disarmament
has to happen so that there is no fear between the countries.
It is because the fear between countries they go on the arms
race and as we all know the nuclear arms are so dangerous
and if it gets into wrong hands the whole planet is in trouble.
So we all have to persuade all the governments and the
institutions in the world to promote that peace between the
nations. So every day we pray and conclude our day with
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti, means let the divinity bring peace
to individuals and their immediate family and parliaments of
society and between the nations.
