It has become our tradition to celebrate Gandhi’s birthday every year. The 3rd year celebration was organized mainly by Dr Krishna, one of our Ambassadors for Peace, sponsored by UPF Bristol. Dr Krishna was very happy to organize the event when we invited him to, as he thoroughly enjoyed organizing Father and Mothers Moon's birthday earlier this year.
As he was very enthusiastic, in preparation of the day, he announced the date and location of the event everyday at the Hindu temple. We had a wonderful time with more than 50 guests and ITV (local news TV station) came to film us. It was featured on TV the next day.
Edward Stacy gave a presentation of UPF. After that some people became very interested to become an ambassador for peace.
Mahatma Gandhi’s Prayer of Peace:
I offer you peace.
I offer you love.
I offer you friendship.
I see your beauty.
I hear your need.
I feel your feelings.
My wisdom flows from the highest source.
I salute that source in you.
Let us work together.
For unity and peace.
We hope many guests from this event will come to our main UPF showcase coming soon on 24th October 2009. UPF Bristol strives to bring together various diverse groups to encourage dialogue and co-operation regarding the many issues that our society is facing. We would like to celebrate our achievement together with all supporters. Also our guest speaker will speak on UPF worldwide work in Russia, China and Tibet etc. Please come with your friends and families.
