In 1998, Malta was inaugurated as the first Sri Chinmoy Peace-Blossom Nation. This was a new initiative to bring together countries around the world together in a spirit of harmony and peace.  Many other countries and natural landmarks later joined this Peace-Blossom project.

The video shows the ceremony, the opening meditation and speeches as well as some Maltese scenery. Malta was also the place where Sri Chinmoy started his project of peace-bird drawings, totalling over 15 million birds until his passing in 2007.

The plaque reads:

“Malta, jewel of the Mediterranean, hallowed land where continents meet and cultures blend in perfect harmony. Throughout the sweep of centuries, from their smallness-land the people of Malta have courageously defended the entire free world and within their vastness-heart they have lovingly embraced the entire humanity.”
