Canberra, ACT - Yulara, NT

Reported by Pranava Gigja

Our team has arrived at Uluru, the starting point for this year's journey of the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run in Australia.

Uluru's companion, the mighty Kata Tjuta ...

... though our journey had started already 3 days earlier, when we loaded our 2 vans and a Commodore in Canberra ...

... 5 frisky drivers on our way to the heart of Australia, Uluru.

Yin Lee, our greatly spirited and humble driver from Canberra, made sure our spirit and humour were kept high and our cars were safe for driving everyday.

Our first layover was Renmark. We thank your gracious hosts at Renmark Motor Inn: Len, Rosie and Ann at the Adventurer Motel. It was just what the team needed after 1000km driving.

Our second layover was in the hottest place in Australia, Coober Pedy. No wonder that some people live under ground during the hottest season.

We thank our very gracious host Nick at the Radeka Down Under Motel. His self-giving really embodies the spirit of the Peace Run.

On our last leg to Uluru, we stopped for petrol at Kulgera and met our hosts Chris and his wife that run the Kulgera Roadhouse and hotel ...

... we will stay at their place on our way to Adelaide in few days.

Chris and his wife have some fun with us. That’s what peace is all about – taking life not too seriously.

Our Icelandic representative Pranava presented Chris and his wife – along with Chris’s mother – our Certificate of Appreciation for all their heart of self-giving.

Finally our driving journey with the two support vans and the Commodore arrive safely in Uluru, the centre of Australia.

Uluru the mighty root of the Australian continent. And a most sacred place of the Aboriginal People.. You can feel the peace and power of this ancient holy place.

The glorious Uluru in the morning light.

We would like to thank the nice staff Emily and her co-worker at the Yulara camping ground for taking care of our team while we stay here at Uluru.

A few steps for peace.

Our team captain Prabuddha presented Yulara campground with the Certificate of Appreciation for hosting us.

Our special thanks go to Tamma, the P.R. coordinator at the Yulara resort who is our big supporter and coordinator for Sunday’s Peace Run event in Yulara.

Tamma made a silent reflection on peace and harmony.
