Excerpts from her speech…….

Good morning respected Secretary General, dignitaries and friends,

It is a great honour to be here today at such a symbolic event. I am a great believer in the United Nations-uniting for a better world. UNITY takes COURAGE-COMMITMENT AND LEADERSHIP- and this is whatI am seeing and experiencing today…….not only with the Secretary General and dignitaries- but also withyou- the next generation

A lot has already been said today…..eloquently… And effectively, resonating….all that each of us believein, to bring and keep our world together. PEACE however is divine manifestation and we have to find andachieve peace within each of us and spread that around.

My father put it very simply…man says I want peace….well cut your I- ego-sense of beingSingular- and become a we and us- get rid of your wants and desires and you’ll find your peace. I’d like toend with a Sanskrit peace mantra.

On sarvesha swastibhavtu, sarvesha shantibhavatu, sarvesha purbhavatu, sarvesha manga lam bhavatu,on shanti shanti shanti

May all become fortunate
May all attain peace
May all achieve fulfilment and may all be blessed
Om peace peace peace….
