Great job in Chicago and it looks like they really felt the energy and joy of the Peace Run! I'm still living off my Peace Run high and hope it lasts until my next Peace Run!! Keep up the great work!
Very happy to see all the happy faces on the Peace Run! And so excited also very proud to see Putu from Bali there represents Indonesia!

Hi! Loving all the beautiful scenery and seeing all the peace you're spreading to so many people . As far as the selfie contest team C with those bright smiles keep it up! See you soon in Chicago.
Every day I look forward for new pictures and reports. Even though I finished my American journey in Oklahoma, I feel that my heart is still with you and you are in my heart. Thank you very much for the amazing photos and tremendous inspiration. My admiration.
Svetlana from Izhevsk

Thank you so much for visiting our school in Kingston, WA on June 14th! I hope your run will always stop by our school as a way of planting the seeds of peace in the minds of our youth who will soon take over. I wish you continued peace on your journey! Aho Mitakoye Oyasin (we are all related),
This July 4th is an honor to pay tribute to the sacred principles articulated by Thomas Jefferson and the Founding Fathers in their Declaration of Independence. As we celebrate America’s 242nd birthday, these universal truths continue shining forth in the spirit of America’s small town warmth—as shown by Sidra, her Mom and communities welcoming Peace Run with such sincere love, joy and enthusiasm. (In 1998, we ran by the town of Arpan in South Dakota. ;) These priceless memories nurture us through the years, and decades to come.
America means speed:
Speed to run the fastest.
America means victory:
Victory over ignorance.
~ Sri Chinmoy; Founder,
BTW Team, my vote is a three-way tie for your selfie competition based on two simple criteria: creativity and insouciance. Congratulations! and continue sharing your contagious happiness and smiles.

Wow you folks are really moving through the US meeting and greeting lots of nice people and seeing the sights! I am glad that bull was behind the fence even though it wasn't much! I bet you could feel the breeze from those big wind turbins. Keep it up!
Grateful for your photos and reports. Great job team! Keep going and thank you for your inspiration!
Scenery is beautiful. So nice to see my San Diego friends enjoying so many good ecounters and spreading of Peace and shared fun!
Hi Team! We miss you and being with the Team the ever unrolling peace road you tread. But we'll take as second place the great photos stores you weave! Carry onward and we'll meet again. Thank you!!!!
Thank you for being here with us in Harlowton with the children who were taking part in the HAPY summer program. We enjoyed your presentation and appreciate the time you spent with us.
Hello Peace Runners, Full of admiration for what you are doing. Peace & Joy,
Hi I loved joining the Peace Run for a few days in Oregon, days I will cherish forever. All the best as the run heads to Canada then back to the U.S. See you Sunday at the Peace Arch!
Dear Peace Runners, I have been following your progress every day -- and thank you for bringing peace to our peace-thirsty land and people. I will always remember seeing Sri Chinmoy in New York at the start of the Peace Run! I have never seen such beautiful eyes and peaceful face before! Thank you for bringing us the spirit of Sri Chinmoy wherever you go. I have the feeling that you are the new hope for peace here and everywhere! With a smiling heart,
Dear Sarankhuu & Mongolia Peace Run Team, Your incredible enthusiasm for Peace Run—from organizing Mongolia’s runs to include China and running all those miles—is divinely uplifting! The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is amazing in connecting our towns, nations and millions of people around the world, isn’t it? The world is wonderful, as you say. More so when we’re all aware of our aspirations to live peacefully as one family. Viva! Viva!
Sunamita, New Mexico, Sri Chinmoy Peace-Blossom State (2000)
Hi Team. Greetings from Mongolian Peace Run Team. This world is wonderful. We are doing the same thing in different part of the world. See you soon!
We are looking forward to seeing you Wednesday at Redwood Coast Montessori! We have runners onboard to go with you from Alice Birney school all the way through town along the bay, over the bridges across the bay and on up the peninsula to our site. See you soon!!
So glad to see the photos of my friends from San Diego on their journey to spread the words of peace and love throughout the world! .Thank you!
Thank You all for stoping in Tijuana. Project Bala Zavala Running Team Welcomes You anytime. Sincerely
Javier Zavala, Coach
Very inspiring photos and stories, especially from the Grand Canyon. I am so glad all of you had the chance to experience this Wonder of the World firsthand, (and foot). The peace one feels there can be deeper than the Canyon itself. I hope it has strengthened and fed you all to keep up the great efforts of sharing and spreading peace everywhere you go, even on the busiest highways. I hope to see you soon and join in again on feeling and spreading peace as we move forward, making progress every step of the way. Enjoy the breathtaking California coast and stay safe.
Happy to see you passed along the prayer stick given in Memphis. So inspiring to leave in such a perfect location. The pictures of nature were absolutely stunning. Peace & Oneness,
Your comment about the birds, and the torch flame looking like a bird -- in fact quite a few of the photos showed bird-shaped flames-- made me smile, because just yesterday I read in the Globe and Mail that 2018 has been declared the Year of the Bird-- by many organisations like Audubon Society, National Geographic, and others. Birds, birds everywhere. It's a good sign.
Thanks for your inspiration and the great photos. Our hearts are running with you.

Dear Rotraud, Runners & Everyone,
Thank you so much for your support of peace and friendship from around the world!The Land of Enchantment is beyond thrilled in taking steps with you, as shown by heartfelt messages of welcome from our leaders (May 13, May 14). Clearly, we all resonate in our diverse and unique ways with Peace Run founder Sri Chinmoy's message: "Peace means a flood of love in the world-family." Peace Run would not be possible without tireless and selfless runners who wake up every day offering their best--like Nikolaus. I love how everyone can remain so cheerful, especially under trying conditions running on our high mountain desert! For Peace, Light and Beauty ~
Sunamita, Santa Fe, Sri Chinmoy Peace-Blossom Capital City (2014)
Dear Peace Run team, I follow you almost every day online and not only because my son Nikolaus is member of your wonderful team (by the way, Nikolaus, I knew immediately it was you reporting on may, 14 th, when I read "one can feel the thin air---or rather you can´t.."). Thank you all for bringing peace in the world and sharing the messages of Sri Chinmoy.
Rotraud Scheiderbauer, Salzburg, Austria
Keep up the good work team. Been following you online. Very inspiring. Really looking forward to seeing you here in San Diego. Peace and love!

Hello Yesterday es had in Germany in Freiburg a group of students from UNICEF. They had papers to write dreams. I wrote Peace. Then we sang together Imagine from John Lennon accompanied by a man playing Piano. Then we let the ballons fly. I make Sewa in a Sikkh Temple. Sikkhs have the largest Community kitchen in the World. The food is for free. I wish you a nice Run. I will always remember the great time I had on the Run in the States together with Arpan, Tom, Boijayanti and Harita. Keep up the spirit.
I spent almost 2 weeks on the Peace Run with such an amazing team. I had a fabulous time. Totally exhilarating way to see the USA. From Atlanta to Oklahoma City, totally new to me. The people were so open and friendly and excited about peace. So this city girl doesn't know her donkeys from her horses. Haha. But I had so much fun with you guys. Thank you to the wonderful team for this transcendent experience. Keep the Peace train going. Miss y'all so much! In Oneness,
OK, little Kaspars, I am sending you and the whole team greetings and we are so excited that we will have the Peace Run soon here in San Diego and see all you beautiful peace runners! Keep up the awesomeness that I see you are creating!!
Hello, Peace Runners -- the photos and stories every day are so fun and inspiring! You are doing an awesome job, meeting so many wonderful people and sharing the message of peace. Looking forward to seeing everyone in Santa Fe!

Last evening I was driving from Bennington, VT to Rutland, VT and passed a lone torch holder running on Route 7...I was so happy to see her and I waved. Soon after I saw the van and looked up Peace Run. What a blessing to have so many wanting to spread peace. I want that line runner to know she made a difference to me...much love.

All the best!

Saw you running with the torch, today, along the Sonoma, CA coastline. Then saw the support van in Valley Ford. I had to do a little research to find out more about your cause. Very inspiring, and I am proud to have seen you. Thanks for representing me and the rest of the world.
Monica, Sonoma, California

How's the new RV doing?
We are 3 months into our journey and on our 11th country.
We are currently in Serbia and the reception from the people has been fantastic with both local and national media coverage. Some of us became overnight celebrities appearing on television, hahaha!
Next country will be Bulgaria!
Another day, another country.
Keep running and keep eating, or is it keep eating and keep running? lol
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak with one of your runners in Kansas City, MO. He was on Raytown road and he is from Australia. It was such a privilege to chat with him, (I didn't get his name though). He was gracious enough to allow me to hold the torch for a bit, (a complete and total surprise). I was thinking that I would get a great video but it was so much more than that. He allowed me to take his picture, which I will try to upload from my phone. Thank you for making my day!
Matt, Kansas City, Missouri
Great seeing everyone in St. Louis!

Sorry I couldn't be at the farm with Julie to welcome the Peace Run Team. It is always a celebration when you run into Vermont.
Thank you for your heroic sacrifice to spread the vision of Peace. We can feel your hearts presence here at the farm, long after you have continued down the road.
See you in New York!
Hello to Tavishi from Australia. And a big hi and welcome to the team to Kanyaka and Sweta from Hridayinee and Suhashini in New York. See you again upon the teams return here on the 15th August. Have a wonderful Peace Run journey!
We finally got word that you were rushing off to Keene, New Hampshire. We're sorry we missed you! A crowd of us were ready with peace music blaring in downtown Brattleboro, Vermont. We had a great time anyway; we talked about peace, played peace games and passed our own peace torch (which happened to be a phone!). Thank you for what you are doing.
Your runner ran through Kennebunk, Maine a few minutes ago.
I have a short video.

It was a pleasure to see the Peace team run through Harbor Country Michigan taking time to stop in New Buffalo, sharing singing and painting leaving us sure that one day strong wills of gentle souls may one day take over the world. God speed through our beautiful World.
Loved seeing all the GREAT peace runners in my home town of Minneapolis--city of lakes and a great creek...Minnehaha. You have come so far since I last saw you in Vancouver. I had so much fun on the Peace Run with all of you and I won't forget it! You are doing a fantastic job of spreading LIGHT throughout the USA and Canada!!
Just last night I got back home after spending a month on the road. As I was running through different places and meeting so many children and grown-ups I could see how diverse this planet of ours is. Yet, we all have the common yearning for the more joyful and peaceful world.
I am really grateful to the team for being so awesome and to all the people I met on the way for all the kindness, good wishes and cheers.
Thank you North America!
Thank you PEACE RUN!
I just drove past three amazing runners! So wonderful till see you in Rice, Mn!!!! So glad to see you here in small town Minnesota!!!!
What an inspiring group you are! Thank you so much for stopping in Park Rapids on your trek. The kids and I from Century Adventures thank you for visiting and sharing with us.
Hello Peace Runners,
The selfie competition is no competition at all, "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" definitely takes the cake.
I am missing you all and the road! (Running without the torch just isn't the same)
Enjoy Saskatchewan and stay dry.
Miss you all!
From your Selfie i would vote -for 100 % non GMO combining the names of boys -
Denis The Good , Jatkara The Bad ,Arpan The ugly! First place
Second place i would give to -The cowboy shot.
Keep it up!
You all look Great !!!!
We are all voting (our team) for the tech-assisted 'selfie' of Kaneenika, Savita and Prapti. Great pics everyone!!
Hello everyone :)))! I have been following you and remembering all the beautiful places in BC and Alberta. Nice photos! You guys are having too much fun;)....the best selfie? It is very hard to decide; they are all unique, cute and funny...but if I have to really choose 100% non GMO is #1....and I really want to know the finals from "Good, bad and ugly"!!!
Keep up the good work!...not in selfies, but in running....or perhaps both?! haha
Your Selfie competition on †he 8th of July is so hilarious! It made me laugh a lot! I like the 100% non GMO team members, the Good The Bad and The Ugly, the tech-assisted version of the selfie and also the cool cowboys! I think they are all great and someone should buy you a big jug of ice cream as a reward! Thanks for the joy!
Hi team. Keep up the good work! I just wanted to vote on the selfie photo contest. I vote for the 'Good, Bad and the Ugly' I think its in the right order... Santiva
I vote for the new-cd-cover like photo: http://www.peacerun.org/ca/news/2014/0708/808/gallery/#37
It looks as if Sandro has just returned from 4 hour faerie walk wandering among flowers, his head in the sky, Mahasatya after 3 weeks on a Neera diet, and Salil grabbing all fame for himself! Nice shot and editing, though :)
......definitely 'The Good The Bad and The Ugly'.
Hey I'm that friendly biker - http://www.peacerun.org/us/news/2014/0615/589/
I'll try to link your site to ranckle.tumblr.com - my travelogue.
Great meeting you. Good luck with the rest of the run.
Peace Run Team Family,
Thank you so much for spreading Peace June 26th and for including Russ and I in your inspiring activities from Port Townsend to Port Angeles WA. Stota and Abanna your plans offered beautiful fruits in both cities and all along the way. You both are amazing. We loved it! This was my birthday celebration this year and thank you for letting me help with giving out water to the runners a few times, especially thanks to Rupasi. I especially enjoyed seeing the children add their wishes for World Peace to the millions of other's wishes who have held the Peace Torch. I loved hearing Daulot and Arpan and all the others talk to all the children. Hearing the bright kids so cleverly guess where we were all from, all the "countries", like NY, Seattle, San Diego, Mongolia, Austria, Poland, Brazil, New Zealand, Canada, Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia ... I hope I didn't forget anyone... winning the contest so we "had" to sing to the children was so fun! Singing the Peace Run song again was a joy! Thank you for the Mexican Birthday Dinner Stota and Daulot and everyone who joined us. And thank you Nayak for being part of this special day by calling just as all the inspiring Port Angeles events concluded the day, to thank me for being born (always your special way of saying Happy Birthday).
Peace Runners, have a great time in lovely Victoria Canada and on Galiano Island at the Peace Statue. I wish I could be there with you.
Love to you all,
... Keep Dreaming of Peace for all our 7 Billion Brothers and Sisters. Keep smiling with the children!
Your sister, 100 miles south of Port Angeles, Julie
Hi to THE team!
As you make your way to Canada, you carry this symbol of peace between our nations and all the nations of our fragile world. This uplifting message that you bring with you, in your hearts and in your every-day steps for peace brings hope to all the generations of today, young and older alike.
Desmond Tutu's quote surely applies to this run as it was addressed to its founder Sri Chinmoy: "Perhaps the world continues in existence only because of people like yourselves who help to hold it in being".
Happy running. Peace to all. Happiest Canada and USA celebrations. And welcome to Canada !
Hi Runners! Great seeing you in my home state of Oregon--can't wait to see you in Washington!
Love seeing all the pictures in the reports, glad you went to the format that allows you to add so many more pictures, especially of all the wonderful world-servers in Portland!
See you soon!
I am so fortunate to be part of the North American Peace Run team 2014 from St. Louis to San Francisco!
Thank you so much for your daring enthusiasm and oneness.
The outer journey, I will always remember and cherish.
The inner journey, I will always treasure forever.
Keep running, keep smiling, and see you soon very soon in NY.
It is so nice to see you all beaming and running up the West Coast!
There are so many great photos, and it is truly inspiring to follow the blog.
Your heart's joy shines through those bright smiles.
I ran from San Francisco to New York with the Peace Run in 1987, (which makes me sound really old!) and I can't believe Arpan is still the team captain, as he was back then! Way to go, Bro! I hope you enjoy the places I coordinated - Portland, OR and Southern WA, which come up in a few days. Give 'em heck, Palash! Congrats to Kaneenika, after the 10 Day race, this must be like a walk in the park!
Love, Peace and Joy,
It was so great to spend the day with you all in San Francisco. It was such a positive lift which I am still treasuring and I won't forget anytime soon. Keep up the wonderful work and hope to see you all again in the near future.
Hello to everyone on the team! I had such a good time on the Peace Run for the last three weeks, it was hard to leave. I enjoyed everything starting with running through the beautiful countryside, friendly people, super excited children and a great team. On the Peace Run one forgets about all the small problems of life and begins to feel the world expanding and expanding, one can feel a sence of freedom and joy. Wishing you happy running and blisful spreading of peace! See you somewhere in Canada.

Hello, Peace Run Team and Peace-Dreamers!
Thank you all so much for the great memories and happy times I shared with you during my time on the run! And equal thanks to everyone I met on the way who encouraged me, gave me water, or expressed their own wishes for humanity. The vision of the Peace Run is clearly universal. What a perfect way to unite the world! Please continue spreading your sincere goodwill, determination and commitments to peace.
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

I really enjoyed seeing the Peace Run in Long Beach, California! I had just read about it in the the Grunion Gazette, and there he was, a vibrant, healthy Mahasatya Jancza, from Poland, running north at the Marina, on Pacific Coast Highway. I got out of my vehicle and cheered and jumped up and down! Peace Be With you~ We say at my church. Let's RUN the words~
My wife Iolanda had the opportunity today June 7th to meet the team at the self realization center in Encinitas California and join in on a peace meditation with them . A young lady from Russia let us hold the torch and took pictures.
What a great event this was and so encourged after meeting all of you.
Dear Peace Runners in the US.
Greetings from the Faroe Islands Peace Run. We were just enjoying the beautiful photos from the US run and feeling the shared joy through them.

Congratulations on sharing the spirit of the Peace Run so well with us all. The joy and happiness and peace expressed by the Team and all you meet jumps right out of the pictures and into my heart. Wonderful! Gratitude
Dear Peace Run team! Be ready for some swimmers to join!
At least water temps will be a bit higher than in Iceland :)
Enjoy! - Vasanti
THANK YOU for sharing your message of peace with the community of Pagosa Springs! Your visit had a positive affect on so many of us, both young and old. May your steps be light, your strides be long, and may peace run alongside you on your journey.

To Harita - loved the photos--the cliff village would have been special to visit.
Do you listen to cowboy music when you run through Utah? guess no
Bet you miss the sea and expanses of water.
How can people thrive so far from the sea-us dolphin kiwis find this a challenge.
Hugs and love from dad
You are all looking so vibrant and happy and the scenery looks incredible, wow! Am living vicariously through you until I join the run next month (can't wait!). Manoshri, I was so jealous that you got to hold that adorable lamb :) So nice to see you all spreading the message and the smiles, it looks like you are meeting such nice people. Wishing you all health, happiness and unforgettable moments.
Lots of love, Brahmata (Canada)

Hi to your new team member, Mahasatya from the UK, the isle of kings, soon to be separated from Scotland. And yeah also to the others, i mean everyone on the team should be greeted. There is far more that unites us, then divides us. Cheers.
My name is Renee and I was blessed to wait on Arpan this morning at City Market in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. I enjoyed hearing about your travel. I wish you all a very safe journey on your Peace Run. I hope you had a wonderful stay in our little town.
Thanks so much for a great time on the run!

Hi from New Zealand to Harita, Pranlobha and all the running heroes :) It's so inspiring to see the Peace Run every day with all the beautiful photos and smiles all around. Each day is a new journey covering not only the physical distance travelled but the length and breadth of the world with peace and light.

Lots of joy to everyone!

It was great to chat with your runner when she came through Sedalia, Mo on May 18, 2014.
May Peace Follow you all on your adventures! (see Kevin's photo)
Arpan, Thank you so much for allowing us to visit your campsite earlier today. It was an absoute privilege, and well worth the couple of hours driven just to shake hands with you and your team. Until today, we had not heard about your organization. For certain, your mission and selflessness to promote peace, is admirable and quite humbling. All our best. ~
Maria, John & Joseph, MO
Just passed some runners on 50 Hwy heading towards KC, MO! Safe running!!!!!!
Cathy Oerter and I are together looking at the beautiful pictures of peace! Thank you for the amazing energy that reaches out through this site and straight to our hearts! I look forward to meeting you in LA!
It's an inspiration to be part of the PEACE RUN! And it shows. Thanks for spreading the light, good luck, and I pray for your legs to be strong, your meals to be nourishing, and your days to be filled with joy. Gratitude***
Yesterday, two of your wonderful Peace Run runners came through Bardwell, Kentucky. Arpan DeAngelo, from New York City, and Sandro Zincarini, from Italy, were so very considerate, allowing me to photograph and giving me a brochure. The photos and an article will appear in next week's issue of Carlisle Weekly. Thank you for your wonderful organization!

Hello again peace run team I just wanted to say thank you for responding when I wrote you the poem I'm happy you enjoyed it and I have a question' are you all going to Albania for the peace run? I was just wondering because my parents are from there.
