New Zealand 5 March: Tongariro Domain - Waipahihi School
A day in Taupo
We paid a visit to a statue of a "Dreamer of World-Peace", Sri Chinmoy, after whom the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is named.
Waipahihi School invited us to share the message of the Peace Run. Many of the children remembered our last visit to the school two years ago.
Inquisitive Waipahihi students spontaneously greeted Daniel with questions: what is that you are carrying, and what is the fuel? A: It's a Peace Torch and lamp oil fuels the torch.
Mayor David Trewavas has been a good friend of the Peace Run team over the years and welcomes us to his office.
The beautiful Waipihihi Botanical Gardens have tendered a Peace Tree that was planted by the Peace Run team four years ago.
