UPF Bristol Celebrate the Birthday of Mahatma Gandhi

It has become our tradition to celebrate Gandhi’s birthday every year. The 3rd year celebration was organized mainly by Dr Krishna, an Ambassador for Peace, and sponsored by Universal Peace Federation (UPF) – Bristol.

Dr Krishna was very happy to organize the event. As he was very enthusiastic, in preparation of the day, he announced the date and location of the event everyday at the Hindu temple. We had a wonderful time with more than 50 guests and ITV (local news TV station) came to film us. It was featured on TV the next day. Edward Stacy gave an introduction to UPF. After that some people became very interested to become an Ambassador for Peace.

Mahatma Gandhi’s Prayer of Peace:

I offer you peace.
I offer you love.
I offer you friendship.
I see your beauty.
I hear your need.
I feel your feelings.
My wisdom flows from the highest source.
I salute that source in you.
Let us work together.
For unity and peace.

There will be a UPF showcase event in Bristol on the 24th October at the Unitarian Chapel, Brunswick Court, Brunswick Square, Bristol, BS2 8PE, from 12:00 midday until 3:00 pm. (Click here for map.)
