Dear friend
"Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our indian culture and traditional.
we created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for a genuine reason or a false reasons for any reason.but this the time to realize that we are one and we naturally interconnected with each other ,which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of breaths the source is same ,without any discrimination,religion, boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable ,respectable .we should follow the nature's rule ,non violence .peace ,god has given us a human life not for destruction but for look after the wellbeing of all living life.

Greetings Rev. Akhonya,

It is my pleasure to meet you and would like to commend you for all that you do for your people and for people everywhere. It is my belief that when one of us grows and heals, it helps everyone else.

Thank you for contacting me about the nonviolence trainings that Creating a Culture of Peace offers. Can you give me more information regarding your request for early 2011? I am eager to hear your thoughts.

In peace,
Ymani
