"I fully support all the wonderful activities of the Peace Mala organisation and would like to send all your beautiful young peace activists the following message from my heart:
"You cannot give peace to the world unless you are peaceful in your own heart and mind. Fighting for peace never works. Only those who can contemplate their 'enemies' with an open, peaceful, forgiving heart can truly extend peace to others. So, first and foremost, if we want to create a truly peaceful world, we need to commit to changing our own minds, over and over again. Moment by moment we have to choose to forgive, rather than to attack, and to love, rather than to hate.
"As young peace activists, you have to choose to forgive your own parents for not being perfect parents. You have to forgive your brothers and sisters when they really annoy you. You have to forgive your teachers, your friends and your classmates whenever they inadvertently hurt your feelings.
"God Bless you for choosing peace rather than conflict in your own mind first, and then for committing to sharing your inner peace within your own family and your local community. Each and every time that you do this, you truly become the change that you wish to see in the world."
