First Peace Tree in Romania
Nearly one hundred citizens gathered in the central city park, where Swami Gajanand and the city mayor Mr. Ioan Radu Marginean, planted the tree.
Once the tree was planted, all who were gathered sanctified the occasion by chanting Vedic peace mantras. Romanian and Slovakian songs were performed by children from Nadlac and the neighboring city Seitin, and Swami Gajanand gave a touching speech and sang a bhajan (traditional Hindi devotional song). In these ways the message of peace was spread throughout the ceremony.
As a result of the Peace Tree planting, Swami Gajanand was invited to give a lecture in the school for children from 5-8 grade. He told inspiring stories illustrating how three principles can change our life: "Understand, Accept and Give".
