Hyderabad, 11 August 2022: At least 275 youth from across the world joined in the National Tiranaga campaign at Kanha Shanti Vanam – the Heartfulness Headquarters in Hyderabad. Each of the individuals carried a national flag cheering for India in front of the world’s largest meditation centre at Kanha Shanti Vanam. The youth arrived at the Heartfulness headquarters for the International Rising With Kindness Summit which is slated between 12-14 August. The National Tiranga campaign comes a day before the Kindness summit as a tribute to 75 years of India’s independence. The event was made all the more significant with participants from other countries coming together holding the tricolour flag. The event took place at 9.00am at Kanha Shanti Vanam.
One participant said, “We are very happy to be here as part of the Heartfulness arising With Kindness Youth Summit which is coinciding with India’s 75th Independence Day. It’s a great joy to take part in these celebrations at Kanha Shantivanam along with the 275 youth in front of this magnificent meditation centre which is the world’s largest.” Yet another international participant said, “For us Heartfulness centre and India are like a home. There are so many magnificent things this country and the Heartfulness Meditation practise has to offer to us. While we are here to be part of the Heartfulness Rising with Kindness youth summit, being part of India’s Independence Celebrations brings a lot of joy to us. It was an exhilarating experience to wave the Indian flag along with the other youths here for the summit. The diversity, culture and feeling of being always welcome by this country is something that one cannot miss.”
Heartfulness has been organizing campaigns to help youth cultivate compassion and treat all equally. The upcoming Kindness summit is designed on the same idea, but even before the event kicked off, it has already attracted participants arrival at Kanha and be part of the Independence Day fervor. Many thought-leaders of repute, social media influencers and other prominent personalities and at least 10,000 participants from around the world will be at the Heartfulness Headquarters for the summit which is brought by Heartfulness, UNESCO MGIEP and AICTE and sponsored by Reliance Industries Ltd., and Jio Digital, and cosponsored by Zscaler and Adidez Institute Worldwide.
