TODAY is APRIL 15TH, 2015 (10.12 ~KIN 12 12HUMAN). On a day like today 80 years ago in 1935, the first REAL step towards a peaceful World was taken in Washington DC: The Roerich Pact was first agreed to by twenty-one nations of the Americas and signed as a treaty in the White House, in the presence of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, by all the members of the Pan-American Union. It was later signed by other countries also.

The year 2015 marks the 80th anniversary of the signing of this groundbreaking treaty. “The history of international treaties shows us how many of them were relevant and applicable to the times in which they were signed, but then lapsed into irrelevance. The Roerich Pact, however, has kept its heart and its life, and is linked to the needs of today’s chaotic world as much as ever. In so many countries we see a deterioration of cultural values and a disregard for the right of all cultural treasures to have their own continued existence, forever protected and unimpeded. We see destruction of life, property, and the inheritance of the creative genius of the nations. One can only hope that a greater awareness of the importance of humanity’s cultural heritage will increase, rather than deteriorate. There is no greater value to a nation than its culture.” http://www.roerich.org/roerich-pact.php

The Thirteen Moon calendar Change Peace Plan is a people’s initiative that recognizes the need to unify our species based on a new knowledge of time and a new vision of the cosmos. The cause of this peace plan is furthered by the promotion of the Banner of Peace and the principle of peace through culture

To this end the Foundation sponsors world wide the annual Day out of Time Planetary Peace through Culture Festival every July 25. In consideration of the current lack of Peace in the world as well as the general confusion in human relations and the uncertainty and emotional instability that plague virtually every human on Earth today, there is no question that the number one problem affecting the planet is the human inability to control the mind. And where does war begin? In a thought the mind could not control. Can meditation really make a difference? If everyone on Earth truly practiced mindfulness, there would be no war.”
