Peace Day Celebrated by Sant Nirankari Mission in Melbourne

Sant Nirankari Mission, Melbourne observed the International Day of Peace on 20th September, 2009 at Sant Nirankari Bhawan, Rowville.

By creating the International Day of Peace, the UN pledged itself to worldwide peace and encouraged mankind to work in cooperation for this goal. The International Day of Peace - "Peace Day" provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts towards peace.

Sant Nirankari Mission Melbourne took this opportunity to invite Cr Mick Van de Vreede (Councilor - Tirhatuan Ward) Knox City Council along with his partner Rosy to be a part of this celebration. Cr Vreede recognised the Mission’s effort with great respect and honoured the Mission and its members by officially welcoming to the local City Council.

SNM Members organised a 'Tree Plantation Drive' to mark this day and Cr Mick V appreciated the Mission’s gesture of thinking globally and acting locally.

SNM held a congregation on following day, Sunday, 21st September 2009 during which saints shared some views on International Day of Peace and shed light on how we could contribute to World Peace.
