Global Mala 2010
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all of your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations,...and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
-Patanjali (c. 1st to 3rd century BC)
We are endlessly grateful to everyone who was involved in Global Mala NJ 2010 event and look forward to a “rockin’” 2011 event on Sunday, September 18th. Here are some photos that truly only capture a part of our amazing day together.
PEACE is absolutely, positively POWERFULL!
What an honor for Global Mala NJ to have the continued support of Mayor Cory Booker. He recognizes the importance of peace. His words and actions are an endless inspiration to all. He closed his keynote thoughts as gracious as ever: “Today, I am grateful for you being here in the heart of our city. I wish you the best in your journey.”
PRANAMS TO ALL!
