A Prayer for World Peace and a Day Caring for the Environment

Teaching our students about the importance of peace in the world will help create a peaceful world in the future. On September 20, some of our students and teachers made a unique prayer for world peace by chanting 108 repetitions of Gayatri Mnatra. We did this for another purpose as well—to support Ms. Karina Stewart from Scotland, who did an 108 Sun Salutation event to raise funds for the construction of our new school building (see bottom photo).

In School Correspondent Karunanithi’s gave introduction speech, he explained the meaning of the Gayatri Mantra and the need for world peace. Chanting began at 10:15 a.m. and was completed at 11:00 a.m. All were sincere in their efforts, with many experiencing a. freshness in the mind. After the chant, milk, biscuits and bananas were served.

On September 21, several students and two teachers spent the morning caring for trees along the path to Skandasramam on Arunachala Mountain. At 6:45 a.m., the group participated in the Milk Puja at Sri Ramanasramam and then ate idlies, prepared at our free hostel, under a tree at the Ramanasram. After that, they took three or four tree saplings to Skandasram and put manure under the trees on both sides of the path along the way. Upon finishing the work at 11:30, they ate idlies, biscuits and bananas. Then they returned to the school by van after visiting Virubaksha Cave.
