On 15th April 2017 Alice project organized a 5 kundiya Gayatri Maha Yajna (fire puja) for world peace, wellbeing of all the sentient beings and universal brotherhood.
Under the guidance of the Acharyas from Gayatri Shakti Peeth this auspicious mantra was chanted for 125.000 times by all the students and the teachers of the schools which are run by the society, Universal Education School and Sarvbhaumik Shikshasharam Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya.
On this occasion the Acharya Mr. Bhardwaj ji, explained to the students about the values of traditional Gurukul system of teaching and the importance of performing the fire puja in the Guru’s Ashram. By this inspirational Bhajans and teachings he inspired everyone to keep mother earth and the environment clean.
We would like to inform you that the director of the society Mr. Valentino Giacomin has said this on many occasions that India, which has adorned itself as the Vishwaguru, already has the solution of all the modern crisis in itself. But because of following the western way of living we have lost the key of this treasure. And gradually we are getting far and far from our roots.
Only the spirituality is solution of all the of our sufferings. And by getting inspired of this Indian tradition Alice Project started the Gayatri Mantra Chanting retreat and established a Gaytari peeth (a temple dedicated to Goddess Gaytari) in 2003. From that time continuously this mantra is being chanted uninterrupted by the students and the teachers of the project. Weekly fire puja is organized at the school, in which the students and the teachers participate with great happiness. Miss. Ilaria Gambino, from Italy who is the in charge of the school was also participating this ceremony. For her it was the first time she participated in some program like this. She was very moved to see this. She said: “ It was an incredible moment for me, unforgettable…I am feeling so fortunate…”
