1 Minute for Peace in Nepal
Upendra Singh, National Guide for Nepal, tells us about the recent 1 Minute for Peace campaign there:
"It just felt so good - just to be with people and meditate for peace!! Very different from other events we have done, there wasn’t much explanation required for people here to understand why we have to meditate for peace. They simply wanted to be with us and do this. As it is said, 'Peace is possible, it must be felt,' we felt peace as we meditated together in this simple, harmonious and poignant campaign shown to us by our light for humanity, Maitreya Rael.
We touched hundreds of people as we held 5 events in 3 major cities of Nepal - Pokhara, Lumbini and Kathmandu. All events were held in major Buddhist/Hindu temples and monasteries. Some of us chanted 'Aum' while others handed out flyers. Men, women and children all joined us. The biggest crowd we had was at Lumbini, the birthplace of Gautam Buddha.
Yes, we all felt peace!!!
Special thanks to Aboo, our Raelian sister from Thailand who joined us, and other Raelian and non-Raelian brothers and sisters Som Nakarmi, Anjan Dhakal, Suwarch Devkota, Lalit Gurung, Bharat, Anju Chand, Abhusan Chand who helped us in making this a successful campaign in Nepal."
