Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run in Australia

In Australia, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home peace run recently began its epic 112 day circumnavigation around the continent of Australia.

The Peace Run was founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1987, with the aim of providing a dynamic way to spread the ideals of peace, harmony and goodwill around the world. In recent years, it has been called the World Harmony Run, but in 2013, the Australian Peace Run returns to its original name.

“Peace is something that we become. Once we become peace, then only can we give peace to the world and receive peace from the world.”

– Sri Chinmoy [1]
