The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global torch relay that embodies humanity's universal aspiration for peace. Since its inception in 1987 the Run has traversed over 150 nations and territories and touched the lives of millions of people. People estimate since 1987 the torch has been carried over 395,000 miles (632,000 km). The Peace Run does not seek to raise money or highlight any political cause, but simply strives to create goodwill among peoples of all nations.
SunDay 2018 gathered participants from seven countries: Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and, of course, Belarus. There will be something to see: all the machines are carefully prepared and tune upped. The audience will be definitely satisfied.
The solemn events are planned in the territories of the district center and all village councils. Celebrating meetings will be held in the park of culture and recreation near the obelisk, as well as in the city park. On the Freedom Square and in the city park will work the Belarusian farmstead, the sites of enterprises and organizations of the region, as well as a military camp with a field kitchen.
In the evening on the Freedom Square guests of the holiday are waiting for the evening entertainment program with the youth action "Sing the hymn together!" and a disco.
Pupils of Shchuchin center of culture and folk art sang, danced and recited poems for audience. For many boys and girls, it was the first performance on stage in their lives. They were worried because it was their first experience and they didn’t want to let their teachers down. It goes without saying, children were preparing for the festival a lot: they had many classes and rehearsals to learn how to play music, dance and sing. Teachers, parents and friends of the young performers were excited and touched.
Its opening will be held on 1st of June. The author of the sculpture is our fellow countryman Sergey Oganov, which won the competition for the best sketch of the monument of the great commander. The monument was created in the end of the last year and then it was delivered in Grodno. It was temporarily kept on the territory of the church in honor of all Belarusian Saints.
What is the universal language of the mankind?
What educes us to speak eloquently?
What is the sense embodied into wonderful sounds?
What do we call the highest form of art of the world?
This is all music!
Listening to it, each person feels it speaks to them saying something sacred and important.
It’s like rain drops seeping into our hearts and reviving them.
The participants of our annual foreign song contest «Top School” always try to revive our hearts presenting us with their fiery performances.
XII Country-wide Festival of National Cultures will be held in Grodno from 1st to 3rd of June.

The lilacs would not probably be in blossom yet – I keep thinking that on the way to Charles de Gaulle airport from where the plane will be transporting me to Minsk. The spring in France, where I am living now, is often ahead of our Belarusian spring: not only chestnut trees, but peonies as well are in flower. I suppose to see a far more reserved picture back in my homeland. However, this year May has been really warm in Belarus. The chestnut trees and lilacs in my native town Shtchoutchin surprise me with their full blooming splendour.
