Last September and for the second consecutive year, more than 100 cities gathered across the world in one of the largest worldwide simultaneous meditation for peace, organized by the Art of Living Foundation.
The Planet Meditates 2013 event is part of the global agenda that the Art of Living Foundation fosters to achieve a stress-free mind, a disease-free body and a violence-free society.
This event also supported the “International Day of Peace” declared by United Nations to commemorate and strengthen the ideals of peace among all nations. From Mexico to Venezuela, Peru, Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Colombia and Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Logroño in Spain.
Gurudev sent a recorded video to Latin America to be shown at the different locations. In Colombia the main square was literally covered by dozens of thousands of meditators for less crime and peace in Colombia.
The aim of these gatherings under The Planet Meditates is also to promote peace in our minds, as well as pure society. Ridden by crime and problems the governments of many of these cities in many occasions have become sponsors of the events and are looking forwards to the next one!
