The walk of hope mission for Peace & Harmony arrived in Birmingham. The success of the 2015/16 Walk of Hope which covered a staggering 7500 kilometres over 16 months travelling 11 Indian states is once again being undertaken. The founder of Manav Ekta Mission Sri was recently in the UK on a British teaching tour.
Sri M visited many faith establishments across Handsworth as part of the Walk of Hope initiative. Sri M took time to learn about the faith buildings and reciting prayer for peace and harmony.
The walk commenced at Shree Geeta Bhawan Hindu temple moving on to Lozell’s Mosque, New Testament Church of God, St. Mary’s Convent, Birmingham Buddhist Maha Vihara, Gurdwara Babe Ke, St. Michael’s Church, and Soho House & Peace Garden and finishing at Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha and The Nishkam Centre.
Special invited dignitaries were in attendance including Bhai Sahib Bhai Dr Mohinder Singh, Amrick Singh, Matloob Hussain, Bridget Von Baron from Netherlands and many more who joined the Walk of Hope.
When visiting the Lozells Central Mosque Sri M said “I am very privileged to come to the Mosque. I am here thanks to Bhai Sahib, who suggested that as I had done the walk in India, it would be good to also have a walk in Birmingham.
“Whatever religion one comes from, if the heart is pure, if you believe in your faith and you bow your heads down to the supreme, then we are all on a religious path.”
The walking group was received with open arms and love at every stop on the planned walk, given refreshments and blessings before moving on to the next stop.
It was heart-warming to see so many different faiths coming together and showing solidarity for peace and harmony.
