Dear Laj,

I am like you saddened terrorist attack in Hyderabad and express my and GHA
condolences by this tragic event. 

But I can share your view of the importance of peace poems and writings only
half. I agree with you that an evil and cruel person, the terrorist, who
killed all his life and learned only to kill, do not change now, even after
one hundred peaceful poems and writings. He will not read them. How it do
and some people who call themselves peacemakers, but do not read the peace
writings and not want to write them. I do not see much difference between
the terrorists and the likes "peacemakers." Their common substance is one.
It is in their heads, in their minds, and thinking there is place only for
war. For peace and harmony the place in them they have not. Why? The answer
is simple: because these people, from childhood, been not taught peace and
harmony in the family - parents or at school and university - teachers.
Therefore, Tholana wrote his poem not for terrorists and false peacemakers
who will reject it and do not read, and, above all, for the children,
parents and teachers, who will read it to their children and students to
settle in their heads peace and harmony, not terror and war. 

In fact, you write about the same thing when you say of the great Vedic
teacher Chanakya. This idea is expressed by hundreds of great thinkers in
the human history. Think of Gandhi, who said, if you want peace, then start
with the children. Think of Mandela: the most powerful weapon, if you want
to change the world is education. And so on, hundreds of times. In the same
way and the GHA, all of its projects, especially educational and above all
the ABC of Harmony go. However, we must state that the education in the
industrial civilization, or industrial education is essentially
militaristic. We do not see in the schools and universities fundamental
scientific and spiritual disciplines on peace and harmony. We do not see yet
a scientific theory of peace  from harmony in education. We do not see so
far the scientific textbooks for peace from harmony, the first of which in
the world is the ABC of Harmony, created by the 76 GHA authors.

So we see, as in schools and universities flourish not peace from harmony,
and violence, hatred and massacres of ignorance in harmony, particularly in
the U.S., the leader of industrialism, who constitutionally secured the free
sale of weapons, but who is unable constitutionally to secure in schools and
universities the required education of the ABC of Harmony for Peace and
like. Similarly are in India, Russia and other countries. Militaristic
industrial civilization that daily spends on war and weapons billions of
dollars do not need the harmonious/peace education for children, so it not
spends a single cent on it, and our ABC does not find financial support

Therefore, I think we, the GHA should talk, think and put into practice and
life our main weapon to change the world - harmonious education through the
ABC of Harmony and similar global textbooks of peace from harmony. This
should be done in India, and the United States and Russia and everywhere in
all countries to prevent terror and violence science childhood, a child's
head, not the heads of mature murderers and terrorists. 

GHA is trying to do, but is still very weak and timid. We have a lot of
professors in universities and even the universities heads. A year has
passed since the ABC of Harmony publication. How many of the professors,
including the IASE Pedagogical University in India, uses it in their lecture
courses? Who among university leaders, including IASE, introduced this
discipline - ABC of Harmony for Peace - in the curriculum? Unfortunately, we
have not heard such a message from any of the professors and from any of the
rectors, though they many have promised us still a year ago.

 Therefore, we should not be surprised the growth of terrorism in the U.S.,
India and around the world. We, as a spiritual and scientific leaders are
also responsible for this. As told English philosopher Edmund Burke
(1729-1797) "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good
men to do nothing and silence." If we, good men, doing nothing and
stubbornly silent about the ABC of Harmony as the most powerful weapon for
peace from harmony (some do not want to write even a short review in it
supporting), then we should not be surprised increasing evil persons and
terrorist acts now and in the future for many decades. We are the most
responsible persons for peace from harmony and not evil people and

It is so obvious that I will not ask you to agree with me. 

With love, best harmony wishes,

Dear All:

When was the last time an evil person, a terrorist, an outlaw read 
a poem, a writing or essays on peace and was moved by it? 
These avenues are for cultured people to express their view points, 
philosophies and share their frustrations.

An evil cannot be eradicated by prose and poetry. It should be eliminated 
from its roots only by political law - equal law for all. Remember Chanakya,
who went to the extent of removing the thorny grass from its roots 
when he stumbled on it. Now, Chanakya was one the greatest teachers of his
He was a master of the Vedas and taught at Taxila University, the greatest
seat of learning the world had ever known. It was his political strategy
helped defeat Alexander and his attempts to move beyond the Indus.  

It saddens me greatly to read about the terrorist attack in Hyderabad.
Any loss of innocent life is the greatest crime against humanity.
Alas, my sadness and frustration along with yours stays only in these

Yours in finding ways to put an end to these cowardly acts.
