Peace Summit in Seoul, South Korea

On the 17th-18th September, GIWA Co-Founder Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswati and GIWA Secretary General, Dr. Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji, travelled to Seoul, South Korea for possibly the largest World Peace conference ever.

The first day took place in a stadium, filled to capacity with people shouting “We want peace” in every language. Children lined the parade route waving flags of peace. Heads of numerous countries, Presidents, Vice-Presidents, Prime Ministers – current and former – joined hands with what must’ve been thousands of religious leaders of every conceivable religion from seemingly every corner of the Earth.

The second day moved into an enormous conference call where Pujya Swamiji gave a beautiful speech, calling on everyone to not only pray for peace and hope for peace but to also actually work for peace and to BECOME peaceful themselves so that “wherever you go, you will exude peace, share peace and manifest peace.”

He added, “let us bring more peace to the world by bringing about a WASH Revolution, together, for Water Sanitation and Hygiene for all children, everywhere.”
