This event is a part of the international agenda that The Art of Living Foundation fosters to achieve its vision: “A disease-free body, a stress-free mind and a violence-free society”. The event also supports the “International Day of Peace” declared by United Nations to commemorate and strengthen the ideals of peace in all nations.

The attendants of The World Meditates 2014 will learn how to calm the mind beyond their problems and circumstances and will connect with their positive emotions to improve emotional balance and well-being.

Bhawesh Khanal , one of the coordinator of this event, explains that the main goal of this activity is to promote peace in our minds as a way to achieve peace in society.  “It is a scientifically proven that the emotions are contagious. If a significant number of people learn to be mentally calm and content they will certainly make an impact in the community. ”, Khanal comments.
Scientific research shows that meditation modifies areas of activity in the brain. The activity of the right side of the brain – which controls stress and anger – moves to the left side where calm and joy prevail.

The World Meditates 2014 will be a free meditation open to the public and doesn’t require any kind of previous experience. Also, all the participants are requested to come in comfortable clothes.
