Blessing the participants Rev Behan Joginder Kaur Ji said that the Foundation and Mission are regularly conducting such programmes for the welfare of our society. There is a need to connect the people with such projects so that the environment improves. The nature is full of diversities but Oneness is always present at the core which we address as God Almighty. Once we understand both these issues, we start leading a better life.
