In what is believed to be a global first, Vedic chants and prayers purified the airwaves as spiritual leaders from around the world, stood together imploring the Almighty’s benevolence on humanity amid the Corona virus pandemic.
In reiterating the basic Hindu tenets of genuine care and compassion towards all, Hindu spiritual leaders from seven countries unified in an unprecedented online event to pray for COVID19 victims, their families, frontline healthcare workers, and volunteers across the world.
Special thanks were offered for President Trump and First Lady Melania’s swift recovery and prayers invoked for their continued good health.
Organized and hosted by Dr. Kusum Vyas of Living Planet Foundation, Houston-based, and co-hosted by Vaishali Shah, the Global Hindu Call to Prayer brought together spiritual leaders from Bali, Canada, Guyana, India, Mauritius, Nepal, United Kingdom, and the United States.
To inaugurate this auspicious Global Hindu Call initiative, she sought the blessings of Bhaishri Rameshbhai Oza, a world-renowned spiritual leader from India, and thereafter also won support of several Hindu spiritual leaders from across the world.
“At this challenging time, the Vedic concept of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam‘ is a reminder that we are one human family,” said Dr. Kusum Vyas, main organizer of the event. “Thanks to modern technology, we can now connect with people spread across the globe, thus uniting and amplifying our voices in praying to the Almighty.”
