History of Sunray UN NGO in Costa Rica
Air Date: 21 September, 2023
This panel will share a brief history past and present, including slides, of Sunray Meditation Society and Peace Village’s advocacy for Indigenous People’s rights in Costa Rica, other Central American countries, and the world. Panelists will share about a miraculous, groundbreaking Interfaith Conference In 1989 attended by Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo, the Dalai Lama, and other Leaders of World Religions, and how Venerable Dhyani and assistants advocated on behalf of the Bribri and the Boruca Tribes in Costa Rica–resulting not only in both gaining their citizenship in their own country, but also in forming an organization which became recognized an NGO of the UN. Panelists will share how this led in turn to Sunray’s becoming recognized as a UN NGO in 1992, and some highlights, for the past 25 years, of what Sunray representatives have accomplished at the UN globally on behalf of Indigenous Peoples . Venerable and her assistants were welcomed back to Costa Rica for many years to share Venerable’s Peacekeeper Teachings until there was an unavoidable hiatus, Then, through amazing synchronicities, this past year, Sunray and the Costa Rican Bribri reconnected and once again! in the present, Sunray Peacekeeper Teachings have been offered with great appreciation and joy—renewing this sacred connection!
