Canberra Interfaith Forum Event to Commemorate National Families Week

The Canberra Interfaith Forum held an event to commemorate National Families' Week at the Canberra Meditation and Healing Garden in Barton on 19 May 2019 between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. The Sai Young Adults from the ACT Region made a prayer offering at this event.

Youth groups from the various faith and spiritual followings each gave a 5 minute offering which encapsulated the teachings of their faith or spiritual beliefs. Youth groups from the Bahai faith, Sikh religion, Uniting Church and the Art of Living, made an offering at this event. Minister Shane Rattenbury (Member of the ACT Legislative Assembly) during his talk at this event spoke of the collective need for religious tolerance and unity in the current environment.

The prayer offering from the Sai Young Adults of the ACT Region consisted of a guided visualisation where the audience were facilitated through a journey on the essence of the 5 Human Values as taught by Sathya Sai Baba.

This event offered a great opportunity to put into practice Sathya Sai Baba's teachings of unity of faiths and allowed different faith and spiritual groups to come together to discover shared values and commonalities among the various faith and spiritual traditions.
