Divine Interventions in Delhi

“Divine Intervention Turns Adversity into a Blessing” – Lailah Akita.

Dear Climate Healers,

We landed in Delhi in the morning and caught an Uber to Pareen’s place in Faridabad. We were looking forward to staying with her family for 4 days and wanted to pick up some dry fruits and nuts as a gift. Akhil found a shop en route and the GPS directed us into the IIT Delhi campus to pick up the dry fruits.

The security guard at the entrance to IIT Delhi was not amused. He refused to let us in just to buy dry fruits and nuts and told us to back out. At that point, Dolly saw a large mural announcing a three-day event that Acharya Prashant was conducting at IIT Delhi and freaked out:

“Oh my God, I have always wanted to meet him. I wanted him to be in The Land Of Ahimsa, but couldn’t reach him.”

Acharya Prashant is an alumnus of IIT Delhi and he has a large online following, especially in India. He speaks eloquently about the spiritual foundations of Veganism in Vedanta. During our tour, we found that he has converted more people to Veganism in India than anyone else.

Guess what? Our first event in Delhi was at the IIT Delhi campus the next day, which happened to be the final day of Acharya Prashanth’s three-day event. Ms. Maneka Gandhi attended our event and fielded questions from the audience about The Land Of Ahimsa.

We also inflated Vega at IIT Delhi, but discovered that she had developed multiple punctures during her adventures in Auroville. Then we got word that Acharya Prashanth wanted to meet with our Compassion Tour team as well. The feelings of gratitude and admiration for the work we were doing were mutual.

We spent the whole next day at O. P. Jindal Global University in Sonipat, Haryana, hosted by Prof. Naresh Singh at the Center for Public Policy. Prof. Singh was part of the original delegation that created the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that runs the annual Conference Of the Parties (COP) and assembles the Assessment Reports at the UN.

To raise awareness of the event, Ayan Banerjee, a student of Public Policy at O.P. Jindal University had walked 90 Kms over two days, one Km for each minute of the documentary. Despite his efforts, only about 50 people attended the event, but the ensuing discussions were lively. Ayan was especially enthused about our Vegan University proposal and wanted to join as a faculty member.

On the way back to Faridabad from Sonipat, we encountered flash floods with cars stranded on the roads as torrential downpours had occurred in the evening. Pareen’s place is in a low-lying area and it was pitch dark when we arrived past midnight as the electricity had also given out. We were famished and grateful when Lovely, Pareen’s mom, served us Chaat made with peanut curd along with rice and chana dal. Perhaps Dolly’s constant prayers during the ride had something to do with us being back safe and sound.

On the final day of our stay in Delhi, we met up with Acharya Prashant and interviewed him for a couple of hours before heading to the airport for our flight to Ahmedabad. Acharya ji brings a spiritual perspective that the state of the planet is a reflection of the state of humanity today. To heal the planet, we must heal ourselves spiritually.

India, the Land of Ahimsa and the birthplace of Yoga, has to take on a leadership role in this spiritual journey of Climate Healing, instead of merely following the West in its Climate HEATing endeavors.

With much love,
Sailesh on behalf of Akhil, Dolly, Pareen, Vega Cow & Climate Healer and the Climate Healers team.

    It’s beautiful to hear how good things can come unexpectedly. It sounds like a vegan world is on its way.

    Your talk with Acharya Prashant was illuminating. It made me understand that why is it so hard to make people vegan, as it can only be a decision at the spiritual level not at the ethical level, especially for Indians.

Re educate
our world.

Watch, learn and share.

It starts with Education. Eye-opening webinars that lay bare the untruths we are told, and which shine a light on the abuses of our planet and nature all carried out in the name of economic ‘growth’.
