Nama Dwaar
Thought for the day

If the Almighty demands anything from us while we do not have the capacity to offer, would it not sadden us? So what does He do? He first bestows the capability on the one from whom he desires to have a thing and then places His demands!

— HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji     

Singapore book of records: Shaking Hands across continents
Namadwaarians in Singapore shook hands together, on 6-Sep 2015, and participated in the making of an Art collage of titanic proportions whereby demonstrating amazing personal leadership and teamwork. Creativity, ideas, selfless hard work was put to test as the collage, in the form of a huge rectangle, slowly blossomed into a picture of universal brotherhood & harmony.

The style and artistry of the collage was adopted from the ancient Indian tribal art form “Warli Art”, which stretches beyond 2500BC and is inspired by NATURE that is universal. Art was chosen to convey the message of universal brotherhood and harmony as Art has always encouraged, motivated, and inspired humans to come together and communicate in the same language.

What took birth after 7 hours of sweat, toil, highs & sighs was a picture, so beautiful & colourful, epitomizing the spirit and mission of Namadwaar as well as that of the young nation Singapore which has developed into a formidable but amicable global player due to the contribution from its people who possess the elements of friendship, unity, brotherhood and mutual respect for each other.

This fabulous feat of 9.7 metres by 6.7 metres wide collage (approximately 700 Sq feet in area) was achieved by the participation of 75 enthusiastic children and about 25 volunteers from Namadwaar. This feat has gone into “The Singapore Book of Records”. The record is for the “largest WARLI art”, with pictures of celebrating people who are performing music with sound & percussion instruments, and merrily dancing whereby displaying unity & universal brotherhood, along with the message “Shaking Hands Across Continents” aptly placed in the centre.

Achieving this great feat wouldn’t have been possible, but for the enthusiasm and participation of children from across Singapore from ages 4 and above, their parents as well as the volunteers of Namadwaar who were involved in drawing individual different patterns on various papers and putting them together to get the complete picture. The day of the event was preceded by meticulous and concerted planning for 6 months, as key Namadwaar volunteers along with Gopakuteeram teachers spent days and hours in the conceptualization and preparation. Singapore Book of Records highly appreciated the concept of using art as a means to spread the message of universal love and brotherhood. Compliments, best wishes and congratulations poured in from parents of children who participated and other well- wishers. The message “Shaking Hands Across Continents” was coined by Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji and this colossal task was accomplished with great leadership from within as well as by the benign grace and blessings of Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji.

This effort will truly be treasured by everyone for many years to come. Our sincere prayers to Guru Maharaj to bestow us with many more opportunities such as this whereby we can work together as one team, take his message of love by shaking hands with everyone across the Continents.
-Shri J. Balasubramanianji and team, Singapore
