Addressing the congregation, Samani Prassana Prajnaji said that amongst other things - Positive Thinking and Positive Attitude helps a lot towards experiencing internal peace.

Samani Mangalprajnaji began by saying that all creatures - big and small - desire PEACE. She said, wrong perceptions, ego, undue expectations, wavering of mind, growing list of wants and desires etc. are some key reasons which lead to lack of peace. She said knowing / identifying these reasons was just one aspect but more important thing would be to take corrective measures and this could be possible thru regular practice of Preksha Meditation and contemplation. To this end, Samani Mangalprajnaji guided the congregation thru a short course of Preksha Meditation. Samaniji then talked about ways to celebrate the forthcoming Paryushan and importance of forgiveness in one's life towards achieving INTERNAL PEACE.

The programme - which lasted for more than 2 hours, was really well received by one and all.
