In honour of the International Day of Peace, the Isa Viswa Prajnana Trust organized an online chanting session of Jagadguru Swami Isa's Swasti Mantra. This Swasti Mantra Japa Yajna was inaugurated by Dr. Kiran Vyas from France on September 18th. Secretary Dr. MR Thampan and Advocate Punchakkary R. Nair also spoke.
The Invocation Address by Swamiji was read aloud by Prof. Lalitha Santhakumar. In it, Swamiji said that "In this fast changing world peace is not created by putting an end to change, but by keeping both positive and negative changes in a balanced state."
"Swasti Mantra Japa is the sadhana that can enable us to attain [the necessary] purity. The beeja (seed) mantra of the panchabhoota, the five elements, and the corresponding five senses will attain the state of harmony. This will bring in peace to the personal life as well as to the world. This is a journey to peace and bliss, a journey to the Light of the Self."
The practice of Swasti Mantra Japa was led by members of the Isalayam Ashram, and the more than 100 participants who joined by Zoom from around the world followed along at home.
