How We Can Bring Peace!

By Swami Dayamrita Chaitanya

 

Dayamrita came to speak at BNL last year. In his last discussion on compassion Dayamrita asked:

 

What is the one power that is holding everything together? Both science and spirituality are trying to find that same truth – a scientist researches outside, and a spiritual being searches inside.

 

Dayamrita, who earned a bachelors degree in Physics and a Masters in Film Technology, is a senior disciple of Amma (see below), and has now been with her for 25 years. In his second visit to BNL, Dayamrita will give a pragmatic talk on how we can bring peace, rooted in Amma’s teachings of the “Universal Truths.”

 

Amma is a world-renowned spiritual master known as “the hugging saint.” Since 1981, she has given hugs for 15 hours or more a day without a break. Her hugs seem to give people a sense of deep peace and healing. Amma has won international recognition and awards including the 2002 “United Nations Gandhi-King Award” for Non-Violence, and many more for her humanitarian activities. Volunteers all over the US are involved with many of Amma’s projects such as “Green Friends” which preserves the environment, Mother’s kitchen, which serves 72,000 free meals a year, battered women’s shelter in Ohio, and others, details on www.amma.org/humanitarian-activities.
