join thousands of others in a global PEACE invocation
You are wholeheartedly invited to participate in Seven Minutes of World Peace on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.
From 9AM – 9:07AM New York time, thousands of people around the world will simultaneously invoke peace in their own way – through prayer, meditation, inner reflection, or by offering their deep yearning for peace and goodwill to humanity.
There are countless ways to participate, but the main way is to invoke silence and peace for seven minutes. Here are a few other suggestions:
Read and reflect on inspiring writings about peace.
Participate alone or join with others to create a dynamic program with writing, art, poetry, or peaceful music, interposed with at least seven minutes of silence starting at 9AM EST.
Added power comes from simultaneous participation, so be sure to check your local time so that we all come together at once.
“There shall come a time when this world of ours will be flooded with peace. Who is going to bring about this radical change? It will be you: you and your sisters and brothers. You and your oneness-heart will spread peace throughout the length and breadth of the world.”
– Sri Chinmoy
