Peace Run in South Africa!
This year the Peace Torch is visiting South Africa as part of the Southern Hemisphere Peace Run 2019
"Peace is not the absence of war; Peace is the presence of harmony, joy and oneness. Peace reveals the absolute excellence of human life!" - Sri Chinmoy
This is the spirit in which the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run (known as World Harmony Run from 2005 - 2012) was founded in 1987 by the late Peace Philosopher Sri Chinmoy (1931 - 2007).
The Peace Run is a global torch relay, wherein people promote peace, friendship and harmony by passing a flaming torch from hand to hand.
International teams of runners cross borders of all kinds and thereby connect schools, communities, organisations and people from all walks of life.
(The Peace Torch of the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run has been part of the Cape Town Marathon over several years now.)
The Peace Run involved so far more than 10 million people in over 150 countries. The flaming torch has visited several times numerable countries in Africa!
The message of the Peace Run is very simple one: when we can run together in peace and harmony, then we also can live together in peace and friendship!
Each of us can change the world - by giving a living example to others and taking symbolically the first step! In this spirit we can run with the torch, carry it a few miles or just hold it and pass it on - every step counts!
Participate, when the torch visits your country! Yours is the first step!
(Nelson Mandela meets the founder of the Peace Run, Sri Chinmoy)
