ONE NIGHT OF MEDITATING FOR PEACE
BY MENNO BOS (Haagsche Courant, September 24 2001)
Saturday night, under a Pyramid of Light on Spui square in The Hague, a mere handful of people have tried to bring world peace a little bit closer. At the beginning of the peace week they have been meditating the entire night inside a circle of candles and within four big spotlights, reaching to the sky.
Within the circle silence is shared as an answer to all the violence in the world. Initiator Rob Schrama hoped to make a good start in The Hague on behalf of his plan to construct Pyramids of Light everywhere in the world around centres of conflict.
“The beams of light have to provide for positive energy to be released during meditation, to be strengthened and to find her way to the rest of the world,” according to Schrama. “In this way escalations of violence must be prevented.”
