PEACE BLOSSOMS AT INDIA’S HOLY SITES
Pondicherry, the home of Sri Aurobindo's Ashram, where Sri Chinmoy lived for much of his youth and young adulthood, was named a Sri Chinmoy Peace-City on Aug. 8.
Several other spiritual locations in India were also recently declared Sri Chinmoy Peace-Blossoms. The sacred Ganges River and the Jamuna River, associated with Sri Krishna (he grew up on its banks), became Peace-Blossoms this August.
Other recent Indian Peace-Blossoms include the cities of Haridwar and Rishikesh at the foot of the Himalayas, where pilgrims have been gathering for thousands of years ... Rameshwaram, where Lord Rama established his famous Shiva Temple ... Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha ... and Tiruvannamalai and Arunachala, the city and nearby mountain where spiritual Master Ramana Maharshi built his Ashram.
