World Peace & Harmony

Remembering 9/11

World Peace & Harmony

– Shyamli Suneesh
Peace is glory, peace is dignity,
peace is love and peace is amity.

Birds fly freely high up in the blue sky,
Flowers bloom and cherish when spring arrives.
Dews settle on leaves with deliberate happiness,
As bees buzz excited around their hives.

Why aren’t we as happy as they are?
So free, so elated
and no complaints at all.
Take the morning paper in your hand 
and you’d find destruction all over land,
going around in evil bands 
making peace and harmony banned.
War, conflict and destruction everywhere
arresting our accord even while asleep 
Oh! God now is so very rare
And is peace today that hard to keep?
People are killed 
every now and then.
Oh! Isn’t there anyone who’s skilled,
to place the eminent gem
of tranquility and unity.
I woke up today morning,
to enjoy Mother Breeze.
She says if we’d stop roaring
and take everything with ease,
we’d surely succeed in gaining world peace
As trees and flowers sway
and the wind runs over my face
It brings in a new ray of hope
that world peace can still return
“May the World Live in Peace and Harmony”

I dream of a world of peace – Riken Shrestha

hands-on-world-peace

I dream of a world of peace,
Where people can live a life of ease.
World where there is no difference between rich or poor,
Life being pleasant for living ever more.
 
I dream of a world of happiness,
Where there is no sight of selfishness.
Where each and everyone can get their needs,
And have belief in their deeds.
 
I dream of a world of kindness,
Where people can know that the value of love is priceless.
Where people can realize that of earth we are all children, 
And to have a kind heart is better for all men.
 
I dream of a world of loving mates,
Where people can realize all are great.
Where people can know that in this earth, 
With a kind heart people must give birth.
I dream of world of peace,
Where people can live a life of ease!

-Riken Shrestha (Nepal)

Blessing of Peace

lovely white dove

Deep peace I breathe into you
Oh weariness here, O ache, here!
Deep peace, a soft white dove to you;
Deep peace, a quiet rain to you;
Deep peace, an ebbing wave to you!
Deep peace, red wind of the east from you;
Deep peace, gray wind of the west to you;
Deep peace, dark wind of the north from you;
Deep peace, pure red of the flame to you;
Deep peace, pure white of the moon to you;
Deep peace, pure green of the grass to you;
Deep peace, pure brown of the living earth to you;
Deep peace, pure gray of the dew to you;
Deep peace, pure blue of the sky to you;
Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace of the quiet Earth to you,
Deep peace of the sleeping stones to you,
Deep peace of the yellow shepherd to you,
Deep peace of the wandering shepherdess to you,
Deep peace of the Flock of Stars to You.
Deep peace of the Son of Peace to You.
Deep Peace, Deep Peace.

– Old Irish Blessing of Peace
