Peace in the world begins with peace in the home – this was the vision with which Pramukh Swami Maharaj visited over 250,000 homes and touched millions of hearts across the world. It was this vision that inspired the Parivarik Shanti Abhiyan, a family values project as part of Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s Centenary Celebrations.
Special assemblies were held across BAPS centres in India to appreciate the efforts of the 72,000 volunteers involved in the project. Over the past three months, these volunteers visited 2.4 million homes, taking Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s message of family unity, ghar sabha and spiritual values to over 6 million people across the country.
The Parivarik Shanti Abhiyan inspired some 424,000 families to conduct a regular ghar sabha, and a further 1.9 million families pledged to have at least one meal together daily.
The project was embraced and applauded by government leaders, communities and individuals across the country.
