O' World: Many Voices, One Spirit

Sadhakas worldwide sat for meditation in response to Swami Ritavan Bharati’s invitation for the AHYMSIN family to meditate on Tuesday, 1st July 2014, “to show our global response and solidarity with Swami Veda’s mission of interfaith and global meditation” in coordination with the “O’ Canada: Many Voices, One Spirit” observance on Canada Day in Toronto.  At Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, there was a meditation session that corresponded in time with the entire time of Toronto event.

“The President of the Toronto Area Interfaith Council and others also expressed our gratitude to Swami Ritavan ji for his kind gesture in requesting AHYMSIN families worldwide to join us in Toronto as we celebrated Canada Day in which University of Toronto’s Multi Faith Centre served as a mosque, a church, a temple, a synagogue, an ancestral place of worship with contemplative walks and deep periods of silence following each sacred ceremony conducted by Faith Elders.” Chander Khanna, of the Himalayan Yoga Meditation Society of Ontario (HYMSO), has written.

And “At the HYMSO meeting [31st July 2014], we must acknowledge with thanks the kind assistance provided by our Satesh ji at this 3rd “Sacred Journey into Silence,” the seed of which was planted by Poojya Swami Veda with this unique Canada Day celebration now being carried on by the Toronto Area Interfaith Council. Reverend Leslie Mezei, in his brief role as the MC, paid homage to Swami Veda as also Father Terry Gallagher who, as you know, has been attending almost every Full Moon Meditation and along with Shri Amar Erry always invokes the blessings of Swami Veda at these Meditations.”

Chander kindly shares links to some photographs of the event held in Toronto along with a short video of the July 1st 2014 event as well as albums of similar events held in previous years in the presence of Swami Veda Bharati:

Swami Veda was the keynote speaker in an interfaith program at the Arya Samaj Vedic Center in Toronto on May 6, 2001; to read what Swamiji said on this occasion: http://www.meaus.com/unifyingstreams.htm

Swami Veda can also be seen and heard on YouTube giving a lecture entitled “Unifying Streams in Religion.” It is broken into 9 segments.  Here is a link to the first segment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZEkHO0NFtg

Mark your calendars to participate, wherever you are, in “O' World: Many Voices, One Spirit” next year: 1st July 2015.  Perhaps you can locally organize an interfaith celebration of the “Sacred Journey into Silence” in your area.
