$eace $ole is the concept of people of various bac%grounds and cultures living in harmony. !his can only be accomplished by those who have a sufficiently high level of spiritual development and who are connected with the Supreme. $ersons who are &od-centered can teach others by their example. !he 'rishnaites have a concept that is very similar to the $eace $ole($eace )illage. !heir concept is that harmony is not possible on the material level alone. Actual harmony can only be reali*ed by inviting &od into our presence. +hen this is done, people from all wal%s of life and all cultures can live in harmony on the spiritual level, by rising above all material designations and material identities. !his is the basis of real harmony. It does not re,uire agreement on the details of their spiritual understanding, but on the common principle of service to &od. !he 'rishnaites come from a long tradition of masters who teach the spiritual science of the eternal religion. I would li%e to offer seminars(instruction on the spiritual science to those who live in the $eace )illage. 79 Whom @whatA and wh ' woud *i+e to e4(ress ,ratitude< I want to express my deep than%s to -ina &oncharova for inviting me on this expedition, and for her care, introduction to many wonderful people, and her assistance in translation which made it possible to have a meaningful and memorable, and even a profound, visit.

Siberia E Russia .!he 22th 3hristmas -ew /arth expedition has become a very meaningful event for me, as it made me reexamine my beliefs about the world, events, people. I reali*ed that I should follow the path of spiritual development and I do %now what is to be done first. I felt admiration for people, their fates, their wondrous %indness, openness, and absence of fanatics and in spite of many difficulties, their capacity to create a new life, based on new spiritual relationships. It is obvious that the system of education, real deeds and real achievements are worth seeing and experiencing. !he bright impressions are the 3ross +al% for the Abode of dawn on the 1ountain, and meeting Svetlana )ladimirs%aya, a singer. !he main lesson is to start with myself, to change my way of life, my attitude towards life and people, to read the spiritual teaching and all will be well 4 these are my first practical steps. I say than% you to all my friends for this precious experience to live together, to all people whom we met in the villages 4 $etropavlov%a, &ulyaev%a, 3heremshan%a. 1y special gratitude is to 0on #ousse for his simplicity, clarity of thoughts, for his way of life and his wish to ma%e a better world. .
