The walk of hope 2015-16:A Padayatra From Kanyakumari to Kashmir led by SRI M

The Manav Ekta Mission is organizing the Walk of Hope 2015-16—a padayatra for peace and harmony covering 6500 kms from Kanyakumari to Kashmir in 2015. The Walk of Hope was announced by Sri M at a press conference in Thiruvananpuram in the presence of chairman of the Advisory Committee, Sri K Jayakumar, IAS (Rtd), Vice Chancellor, Malayalam University.

 

Led by Sri M, the Walk spans 15-18 months through 11 Indian states, bringing together citizens from all walks of life. It will flag off on 12 January 2015, the birth anniversary of a great prophet of interfaith harmony, Swami Vivekananda and will reach out to 10 million fellow Indians. The Walk of Hope is an exercise to restore the innate spirituality of the nation—rekindling true faith and rejuvenating the spirit of hope, love, peace, harmony and oneness.

 

The padayatra will cover 15-20 kms a day and halt in the evening at a pre-determined village or town enroute. The evening will be spent meeting with the local populace – which will include meaningful dialogues, inter-faith prayers, eating together and, finally, resting overnight at their homes. A diverse assembly of responsible citizens, who foresee a united and inclusive India for themselves and the future generations, will accompany Sri M in this walk.

SRI M

Sri M—spiritual guide, social reformer and educationist—was born into a Muslim family on November 6, 1949 in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. His transformational journey, from a young boy to a living yogi, is a fascinating story symbolized by single-minded discipline and dedication. He travelled to the Himalayas at the age of 19, meeting saints and sages, eventually gaining his spiritual fulfillment under the guidance of Maheshwarnath Babaji. He is married and has two children. His autobiography, Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master—A Yogi’s Autobiography, is a bestseller. Based in Madanapalle, Andhra Pradesh (a three-hour drive from Bangalore), he leads a simple life—teaching and guiding the Satsang Foundation and Manav Ekta Mission.
