Peace prayer campaign held in Amparai

[TamilNet, Saturday, 08 July 2006, 16:05 GMT]
The Sarvodhaya Movement Saturday held a prayer campaign in the Amparai town for permanent peace in Sri Lanka, sources in Amparai said. Large number of people from all the three communities participated in the event at Amparai-Japan Peace Hall with Dr.A.T.Ariyaratne, founder of Sarvodhya Movement in Sri Lanka as the chief guest, sources said.

Dr.A.T.Ariyaratne said that peace could dawn in the country only through non-violence (ahimsa) and not through war. Spiritual guidance should be provided to the people in taking decisions for the well-being of the country, he said.

Governments in power in early days implemented decisions taken at the rural level thus ensuring communal harmony among all communities. Dissension and difference of opinion arose when central authority started to impose decisions against the wishes of the people. Powers should be devolved to the grass root level, he added.
