Ekam world peace festival has by far been the world’s largest online Meditation festival with over 10 million people participating in it from across the world. Sri Preethaji and Sri Krishnaji are mystics & philosophers who have co-created Ekam. They have created several amazing spiritual journeys and festivals to celebrate the limitlessness and expansion in consciousness. The peace festival has been happening for the last 3 years. This year beginning on Aug 9th for the past 7-days.. It also was commended by many reputed leaders of the world from various sectors of life.
Each day of the peace festival is held with a specific intention to cause the wholistic wellbeing of mankind, all life forms, and Mother Earth.
Day 1 was for Peace between nations.
Day 2 was Peace for children.
Day 3 was Peace between races and religions.
Day 4 was Peace for nature and wildlife.
Day 5 was Peace for women.
Day 6 was Peace for economic sufficiency.
Day 7, the final day- is Peace for collective human evolution.
The world’s largest peace festival drew to a grand culmination yesterday .
Addressing the millions of peace meditators from across the world Sri Preethaji and Sri Krishnaji said, ” Peace is either for all of us or for none of us. Unless all living beings lived in peace, there can be no peace for humankind. And unless every nation became peaceful there is no peace for any nation. And unless every member of your family became peaceful there is no peace for you”
They revealed the philosophy behind Ekam peace festival, saying, “Ekam magnifies our intention for peace dispelling violence from the collective human consciousness.
On this last day of the peace festival young, old, leaders from various sectors, millions of seekers offered their peace meditation as an offering for world peace. They said – Our future is forked.
We could either go down this road driven by our loveless- self-centred- separation driven consciousness, and destroy our earth- the only home for life, that is as yet discovered. Or choose yet another road open to us which takes humanity to oneness consciousness, from which alone we can find enduring solutions to the problems of our world”.
On this occasion Gregg Braden, a five-time New York Best Selling Author and scientist joined online to interact with Sri Preethaji and Sri Krishnaji. They conversed on science & spirituality, heart and brain, on intention and the one unified field of consciousness. Gregg said – There is a beautiful space where science and spirituality are not alone but come together evolving into something more.
Speaking about the mystic geometrical structure of Ekam, he said – these sacred
geometrical structures are the physical representations of the innate patterns of the atoms in our bodies. When we are in the presence of these sacred structures we awaken our consciousness to powerful states of love and peace. And when they are located on the right geo-energy spots magnetic, crystal and structural energies converge amplifying and accelerating human awakening. And Ekam is such a rare structure.”
Their discussion was insightfully rich and brought a very scientific perspective to the spiritual approach taken during the festival. The grand festival reached its pinnacle receiving great appreciation from over 25million peace meditators, leaders, young, and organisational teams.
To present a few to you:
On day1, Kailash Satyarthi, Nobel peace laureate Conversing with Sri Krishnaji said, every young person should go beyond the division of caste, class, community, and nationality and unite for the most marginalized and vulnerable children of the world. He said every adult must connect to the child within. Connecting to innocence within you will lead to a spontaneous action to protect the children of the world.
On day3, Meng Foon, race relations’ commissioner for human rights from New Zealand appreciated the massive initiative of peace undertaken by Sri Preethaji and Sri Krishnaji. He said, “Racial discrimination affects the social, cultural, and economic wellbeing of the community. Cultivating self-reflection and realizing the pain of others by placing ourselves in another’s shoes will stop us from hurting them.”
On day4, Erik Solheim, a former minister in Norway for the environment and international development, a winner of The Champion of the Earth award, and Time magazine’s Hero of the Environment award joined as the guest. He said – ALL RELIGIONS HAVE METOPHORICALLY COMMUNICATED THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING AND SUSTAINING MOTHER EARTH. If we can realize this connection we would allow Mother Earth to thrive. He also said – I see and believe PM Modi is taking the right steps in that direction too.
On day5, supporting the message on women by Sri Preethaji, Mithali Raj, the Captain of India’s Women’s Cricket Team said – “Peace is necessary and meditation is a sure way to peace. Peace during challenges is when we are mindful and not rush into action when we should not.”
Mithali Raj also said that COVID allowed her to meditate and live in the present. It made her breathe deeper and not keep running into the future anxieties or past regrets. She has enriched her life in the interlude provided by COVID.
On the same day in the evening, Saina Nehwal, World Badminton Champion joined as the guest. Simple and natural in her ways, Saina emphasized remaining calm even though situations are stressful and demanding in one’s life. After meditation with Sri Preethaji, she had experienced a deep state of restfulness in such a short time. She said inner peace has been a critical factor in every single match she has won.
On day6, John L Petersen, a futurist, a speaker, and founder of Arlington University joined as the guest.
Speaking to John, when Sri Krishnaji asked – as a futurologist what new trends do you predict for humanity? He said the world is on the verge of a massive paradigm shift. For the future to open up
grand possibilities, humanity must become self-realized. He acknowledged Sri Preethaji and Sri Krishnaji for guiding mankind in the right direction. They concluded the peace festival by thanking all the supporters and meditators from across the world and inviting everyone to Ekam to experience yet more glorious gifts in consciousness.

Collective Meditation by Millions has the power to end Wars – Krishna ji, Co-creator Ekam
Connect to innocence within you, you will spontaneously take action to protect the children of the world.
Kailash Satyarthi, Nobel Peace Laureate
Ekam World Peace Festival began today with its intention of ending wars in the world and bring harmony between nations. Ekam world peace festival is by far the world’s largest online meditation festival with over 10 million people attending it, on day one. People from over 100 countries, 2000+ Indian villages and more than 2000 education institutions and organizations mediated for world peace with Ekam.
This meditation is all the more poignant for India, given the context of war like atmosphere between China and our nation. The central idea behind Ekam world peace festival, Sri Krishnaji said, is that the collective violence in human mind becomes the trigger for all wars. No war is noble. All war is fought because of greed, hate and power hunger. And collective meditation and collective prayer intention has the power to infuse human consciousness with peace and dissolve tension and war. Krishnaji said, “Individual peace is the way to world peace.”
Today’s chief guest was Kailash Satyarthi, Nobel peace laureate, who has saved more than 90000 children from slavery and trafficking. He has pioneered the cause of protecting the purity of children and their right to education and dignity. In his conversation with Sri Krishnaji, he encouraged every young person to go beyond the division of caste, class, community and nationality and unite for the most marginalized and vulnerable children of the world. He said the world has globalised everything but it is time we globalize compassion for our children.. He encouraged every adult to connect to the child in themselves and to protect the innocence of under privileged children.
The festival concluded with a magnificent meditation led by Sri Krishnaji. He lead over 10million people into inner peace and made them radiate peace energies to every nation that is gripped by conflict and war. The meditation dissolved anger and hate and opened hearts to peace.
This peace festival will last until the August the15th. Tomorrow will be for dissolving violence against children and nurturing peace in young people and children.
சென்னை திருவொற்றியூர் பகுதியில் வசிக்கும் இளையராம் சேகர் வயது 25 பெரம்பூரில் உள்ள கல்கி அரங்கநாதன் பள்ளியில் ஆசிரியராக பணிபுரிந்து வருகிறார். கடந்த 7 ஆண்டுகளாக ரூபி கன சதுர விளையாட்டில் உலக அளவில் இதுவரை நான்கு கின்னஸ் உலக சாதனைகளை படைத்துள்ளார், தற்போது இரண்டு வருடங்களாக பயிற்சி மேற்கொண்டு ஐந்தாம் கின்னஸ் சாதனையை இன்று நிறைவு செய்துள்ளார்.
2014-ம் ஆண்டு ஆகஸ்ட் 1-ஆம் நான் அமெரிக்காவை சேர்ந்த அந்தோணி புரூக்ஸ் என்பவர் ஒரே மூச்சில் நீருக்குள் மூழ்கியவாரு 5 ரூபிக் கன சதுர புதிருக்கு தீர்வு கண்டு கின்னஸ் உலக சாதனை படைத்தார் தற்போது அந்த உலக சாதனைக்கு பயிற்சி மேற்கொண்டு அதனை முறியடித்துள்ளார்.
சுமார் ஆறு வருடங்களுக்கு எவரும் முயற்சிக்காத இந்த சாதனையை இன்று 6 ரூபிக் கன சதுர புதிருக்கு சுமார் 2 நிமிடம் 17 வினாடி ஒரே மூச்சில் தீர்வு கண்டு சாதனை படைத்துள்ளார்.
If there is one overriding concern for most parents all over the world, it has to be the academic success of their children. For, success in academics is the first stepping stone to a life of accomplishment in adulthood. It is the bedrock upon which the edifice of a glittering career is built. But more than anything else, doing well in school or college depends on how well the brain functions. There is also what is called “natural intelligence.” This explains how people with a rudimentary education become high achievers and establish mighty business empires.
The human brain has multiple intelligences, declared Howard Gardner in 1983. But conventional academics focuses mostly on verbal-linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligences, neglecting aspects like bodily-kinesthetic, visual-spatial, interpersonal intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence, etc. This means the brain’s actual potential is not fully tapped. When the intelligence located in various parts of the brain is utilized fully, it produces a rounded personality who has ability, empathy, and social skills.
Phonemic Intelligence, says Dr. Baskaran Pillai, can be the game changer as it helps to improve the brain’s function in all areas, thereby enhancing the student’s intelligence. This is done by activating the brain using phonemes or soundwaves. He calls it a unique science for two reasons—it triggers natural intelligence, and it also improves the intelligence acquired by academic training. According to him, it is the only practical discipline that is capable of increasing the intelligence associated with various parts of the brain. When one’s brain is functioning well, it enhances both natural intelligence and the academic training received by the student. Phonemic intelligence is the sole brain-based intelligence program that is currently available, says Dr. Pillai.
PI is very easy to practice—all it takes is 7 minutes a day. And within two weeks, the results are said to manifest in the form of an improvement in academic and professional performance. Students who practiced it scored better in tests and were able to set and achieve goals. People of all ages can practice PI. What is more, it also has an impact on social and behavioral aspects leading to more harmonious behavior by triggering feelings of love, compassion, and empathy.
Dr. Pillai is a scholar, philanthropist, and global educator, whose aim is to help people realize their highest potential. He did his PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Pittsburgh and was a teaching fellow in the Department of Religious Studies as well as the Coordinator of the Indian Studies Program for the Department of International Studies.
Dr. Pillai is conducting a Free and Exclusive Brain Enhancement Training camp for students aged 10-18 years and their parents. Those interested can contact:

Chennai, 23rd April 2020: There is a growing concern over the spread of the novel coronavirus among medical professionals and frontline healthcare workers. To address this issue, a group of Electrical Engineering students and faculty from AVIT (Aarupadai Veedu Institute of Technology) Chennai, Vinayaka Mission’s Research Foundation (Deemed to be University) along with duo entrepreneurs Mr Premnath and Mr Subramanian have developed a robot called V2 Buddy at the ‘Ganesan Innovation and Entrepreneurship Centre’. This helps to reduce contact between frontline healthcare nursing staff and Covid-19 patients.
V2 Buddy was today demonstrated at Vinayaka Mission’s Super Speciality Hospital “VIMS” at Salem and deployed in Vinayaka Missions Medical Colleges at Salem, Puducherry and Karaikkal.
V2 Buddy – the Nursing Robot can assist nursing interface by checking the body temperature level of COVID-19 patients, dispensing sanitizing hand rub, delivering medicines and food, enable the nursing staff to interact with COVID 19 patients remotely through video and audio interface from their nursing stations. This helps to minimizes the nursing staff from getting exposed to infection.
This sophisticated nursing robot can be controlled remotely through an app installed on a smartphone by the nursing staff. A Voice enabled Nursing Call facility is also made available through ‘V2 Buddy Call’ through which the Patients in isolation can speak to Nursing Staff in the Nursing Station whenever required for clinical support and counselling.
Mr Premnath, one of the developers said, “V2 Buddy was created after considering the inputs given by the medical and nursing teams of VIMS, the Super Speciality Hospital Unit of Vinayaka Mission Group. They provided guidance on the day-to-day operations and activities of nursing staff in an isolation ward which we attempt to enable through this robot.”
Mr Subramanian, the co-creator explained “The new age gizmo V2 Buddy will be operated using Bluetooth technology and remote sensors from a control console which will be in the hands of the nurse, who will be able to talk to the patient directly.”
“The Ganesan Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center (GIEC) at Vinayaka Mission provided us an ideal platform to build this robot with access to resources, technical support, working space and financial aid” said Prof. Dr. L. Chitra – HOD Electrical and Electronics department, member of steering committee for GIEC, AVIT Chennai and guide for nursing Robot project.
Dr. Meenakshi Sundaram, Medical Director, of Vinayaka Institute of Medical Sciences (VIMS) said, “V2 Buddy is akin to a remote controlled bomb disposal device, as it helps us achieve minimal contact from confirmed COVID-19 patients and still providing adequate care to them. We are glad that we have come up with this new age gizmo which is the need of the hour.” Commenting on this, Dr. Ganesan, Chancellor, Vinayaka Mission Group said “The vision of this GIEC’s Business Incubator is to identify & support potential entrepreneurs and students in developing Minimum Viable Products (MVP) thereby making their dream concept come true and essentially to curtail the import burden by indigenization of products in line with ‘Make in India’ vision of Government of India”
VMRF is planning to donate two of these nursing robots to the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital in Chennai and at the Indira Gandhi Government Hospital, Puducherry. The production and capacity of ‘V2 Buddy’ will be scaled up according the demand in the market.
The only thing that is on the minds of the people currently is the outbreak of the coronavirus and the ongoing lockdown that the entire nation is facing to curb it. Everyone from politicians, film stars, business tycoons to the mango people are in self-quarantine to stop the spread of the virus.
The spread of COVID-19 has hit a lot of people and be it treatment or the need for healthcare facilities like the distribution of masks is somewhere lacking still. To make sure it fastens, several celebs have been contributing to the PM-CARES Fund & Chief Minister’s Public Relief Fund, Tamil Nadu.
Mean while Sathyabama deemed university donated Rs.50 lakh to PM-CARES Fund & Chief Minister’s Public Relief Fund, Tamil Nadu.
Dr.Mariazeena Johnson, Chancellor of Sathyabama Institute of Science and Technology, Deemed to be University donated Rs.25 Lakh to PM-CARES Fund and Rs. 25 Lakh to Chief Minister’s Public Relief Fund, Tamil Nadu. The donation is facilitated to the government COVID-19 relief fund. The money transferred through bank in view of lock down.
