The Walk of Hope 2015 flag-off Ceremony

srim

Dear friend,

As you are aware, the Manav Ekta Mission is organizing the Walk of Hope—a padayatra for peace and harmony from Kanyakumari to Kashmir in 2015. Led by Sri M, The Walk of Hope is an exercise to restore the innate spirituality of the nation—rekindling true faith and rejuvenating the spirit of hope, love, peace, harmony and oneness.

Manav Ekta Mission invites your esteemed presence to the flag-off ceremony to be held on 12 January 2015, at Manav Ekta Maidan, Zero Point, Kanyakumari. 12 January is also the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, a great prophet of interfaith harmony.

The flag-off ceremony will feature bhajans, invocation, inter-faith prayers, theme songs and also addresses by Sri M and other dignitaries including the Chief Guest, Dr. Karan Singh. Prior to the flag-off ceremony, Sri M will visit the Vivekananda Rock to garland the statue of the great seer.
