U.N. International Peace Day

Today marks U.N. International Peace Day, which you may choose to celebrate in several different ways. For yogis, hundreds of Global Mala events will take place in dozens of countries to simultaneously complete 108 sun salutations in solidarity and support for each community's peace-promoting nonprofit organizations of choice. I'll be emceeing a portion of the Boston event at Cyclorama today, and I hope to see you there!

However, there are also plenty of other ways to acknowledge the special nature of this day on your own. Whatever you do, make a point to spend a portion of your day doing something that brings you and/or others a feeling of profound peace. As Mother Theresa once said, "There are no great things, only small things done with great love," calling forth our ability to promote peace with even our smallest actions.

Please feel free to report back with thoughts on Global Mala Boston, reflections on the day as a whole, or perspectives on your own expressions of peace, today.
