Brahmakumaris, in association with United Nations Information Centre, has launched a three-month campaign, ‘I Pledge for Peace.’ The programme was inaugurated by the Governor of Tamil Nadu, K. Rosaiah, on September 18 at Chinmaya Heritage Centre, Harrington Road, Chetpet, in the presence of Dadi Ratan Mohinji, Joint Administrative Head, Brahmakumaris.

Our thoughts determine the nature of energy around us. We become what we think. If we think ill for others we too receive the same and similarly if we intend good for others we will also be happy and positive. This campaign is an attempt to make people experience peace in daily life.”
