Peace Run Portugal 2017

In late May and early June of 2017, over a period of 10 days, a team of Peace Runners from 13 different countries visited 48 schools in Madeira, the Azores and Figueira da Foz in Portugal. The students and citizens of these remarkable Portuguese communities gave expression to their hopes and dreams for a more peaceful world. Through their art, song and dance you will no doubt find a common humanity that will warm your heart and nourish your soul. The Peace Run is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year having been founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1987 as a way to bring people together and celebrate our universal aspiration for love, peace and happiness.

Ashrita’s newst Guinness Record: Most matchsticks extinguished with tongue in 1 minute

A New York man set a new world record by extinguishing more than 30 matches with his tongue in a minute. Ashrita Furman, who holds more than 200 Guinness World Records, claimed the new title for “most matchsticks extinguished with the tongue in 1 minute.” Furman, 61, sat at a table at the Sri Chinmoy Centre in Jamaica and individually lit a total of 37 matches and extinguished them on his tongue to surpass the previous record of 30. He was only permitted to extinguish one match at a time and was prohibited from using his breath to blow them out. (SOURCE: UPI)
