Peace Run begins its journey around the world
Recently, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run started a new journey, in which it will visit all 44 countries in the southern hemisphere. It will be the first time the international team of runners will encircle the globe in a single Peace Run.
During its journey, the Peace Run gives countless people the opportunity to join in with the spirit of the run by holding the Peace Torch and spread a message of peace, friendship and harmony.
This momentous Peace Run began in Bali on the 1st of February and is now in Australia, having visited Vanuatu, Timor Leste and Papua New Guinea. The entire journey will take the best part of a year and is scheduled to finish in Bali in November 2019.
The route will take in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific islands, South America, Southern Africa and islands in the Indian Ocean.
The Peace Run was founded by the late peace visionary Sri Chinmoy in a spirit of love, harmony and oneness. This spirit permeates the relay and touches the hearts of all those who participate. An athlete, philosopher, artist, musician and poet, Sri Chinmoy dedicated his life to advancing the ideals of world friendship and oneness.
“We do not need
But just earth-born seekers
Who believe in peace
And want to live in peace.”
Sri Chinmoy 1
