Peace Run Receives Warm Welcome in Timor Leste
The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run recently made a special visit to the small nation of Timor Leste in South East Asia. A team of international runners were graciously received by President José Ramos Horta and a range of people from school children to mayors and local dignitaries.
The Peace Run was founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1987 as a means to spread goodwill and friendship to people all around the world. Since its inception, it has touched the lives of millions of people. The people of Timor Leste warmly responded to this initiative offering their own good wishes and enthusiastic participation in this dynamic event for peace.
“What does peace do? Peace blossoms. What else? Peace spreads. What else? Peace illumines. What else? Peace fulfils.”
– Sri Chinmoy
