All revolutions start with one person. Revolution by Light was started by Guruji Krishnananda on May 18, 2008. It is a Spiritual Revolution. Spiritual Revolutions are always silent and kept away from publicity deliberately. A few individuals took the initiative of spreading the awareness of Light Channelling by directly contacting people and groups. They gathered and after channelling Light for some time, began this work. This work got momentum when we began teaching Light Channelling to schoolchildren in 2009. From 2011 onwards, we started celebrating World Channels Day every year. It is the Day of spreading Love, Peace, and Harmony.
Tenth World Channels Day was yet another effort to generate a wave of Peace in the world marred by turmoil. It was a disciplined effort of more than 150 Volunteers. Planning for tenth World Channels Day started on 25th December 2019. Area Coordinators started working on finalizing the plan in their respective areas. Work was delegated to Volunteers according to their availability and time. Some of the senior Volunteers were given more responsibility.
In the first week of January 2020, most of the teams finalized their plans and started working on it. Our Volunteers visited more than a thousand schools and informed the school authorities about the World Channels Day. They were requested to join us on this Day by organizing Light Channelling in their schools. Most of the schools happily accepted our request and promised to join us on the World Channels Day. Request letters were posted to several far-off schools. Hundreds of schools were called upon telephonically and were informed about the World Channels Day. Response from school authorities was incredible as they were waiting for this opportunity. Whenever our Volunteers visited the schools, they were given warm welcome. They were offered beverages and even breakfast or lunch sometimes.
Tenth World Channels Day was a grand success. A very peaceful Day started at 6 AM with prayers to our Masters followed by 7 minutes of Light Channelling. Between 7 AM and 11 AM thousands of Light Channelling sessions were conducted all over India. Several afternoon sessions and evening sessions were also conducted by our Volunteers. The Day concluded around 6.30 PM after an evening session was conducted by the Pune team in a college. It is astonishing to know that our dedicated Volunteers conducted sessions in more than 300 schools and close to 2 lakh children channelled Light in those sessions. It is also heartening to note that apart from these 2 lakh children, more than 8 lakh children from over 2000 schools also channelled Light in sessions conducted by schools themselves. More than 1 million children and adults from over 2300 schools and institutes channelled Light. Light Channelling sessions were conducted in Bangalore, Tumkur, Chennai, Madurai, Hyderabad, Visakhapatnam, Udaipur, Mumbai, Pune, Sangli, Amarvati and different parts of India.
Swamy Vivekananda's words are perfect for our Light Channelling work. He had said, "We need infinite energy, infinite zeal, infinite courage, and infinite patience, and then only great things will be achieved." Our Volunteers have all these. They have amazing Love for work, which is helping us to spread this Movement year after year in spite of challenges.
We thank all children, adults, school authorities and all Light channels that supported us in our effort to make this world a peaceful place.
