Ekam World Peace Festival organised an online peace meditation session on August 13, 2020, to end domestic violence, nurture love and promote respect towards women. The mystic-philosophers Sri Preethaji and Sri Krishnaji created the festival to awaken to peace in consciousness. They see peace within an individual as the foundation for a peaceful family, a peaceful world and a peaceful Earth.
Each day of the seven-day peace festival saw several hundreds of thousands of families and organisations, and millions of individuals coming together online, with the intention to become a whole and create peaceful families and societies around us. On the fifth day of the festival, Preethaji led the participants to end domestic violence against children and women and awaken them to love.
Preethaji said, “Women have mystic energy in them. Women share a mystic relationship with all life. Nature is tied to their well-being; prosperity and abundance are tied to their well-being; the harmony within a family is tied to their well-being. The relationship we share with the woman of our house determines the well-being and the prosperity as well as our nations.”
Perpetrating violence against women leads to unhappiness in the world and frugality of every resource. Preethaji led millions of volunteers through wisdom and meditation to cause a shift in our relationship with women and awaken to love and respect for them. On this occasion, Mithali Raj, captain of Indian Women’s Cricket team, joined the morning session and Saina Nehwal, Olympic-medallist, joined the meditation session in the evening.
The two leading ladies of Indian sports joined the Ekam World Peace Festival and came together with the aim to revolutionise family consciousness. Both Mithali as well as Saina hailed Ekam for its noble cause, and congratulated Shri Krishnaji and Shri Preethaji for creating awareness towards women empowerment. Both legendary female sportspersons stated that it’s high time society starts treating women with respect and equality; and that the evil of domestic violence stops.
Speaking on the pious occasion, Saina said, “It gives me immense pleasure to motivate sportswomen in India. I am happy to see women taking different sports and winning medals for India. If I can do it, then anyone can do it. You need dedication, honesty, discipline, passion and self-belief to achieve what you want in your life.”
