March for Peace and improved WASH
Pujya Swamiji and the Hon’ble Vice President of Nepal, Shri Paramanand Jha, were invited to grace, bless and inspire the inauguration of a historic march for Ahimsa (Non-Violence) lead by His Holiness Acharya Mahashramanji of Preksha International. During their meeting,
Pujya Swamiji and Shri Paramanand Jhaji spoke about the great importance of ensuring safe and healthy water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) within the nations of India and Nepal. They also discussed the rivers of India and Nepal, which should always be kept in pristine, free-flowing states, for the benefit of populations as well as for the sake of the divine ecologies both nations share.
They next marched alongside venerable Jain Monks and other dignitaries to launch a journey which will cover more than 10,000 kilometres by foot to promote peace and non-violence within India and bordering nations, including Nepal and Bhutan. During the event, Pujya Swamiji also inspired Respected Acharya Mahashramanji to include Water, Sanitation and Hygiene awareness as part of his historic march, which he readily agreed to do.
