Gautama Buddha walked across many parts of the world conveying the message of peace. In brief the peace was discovered in Nepal and it gradually spread across the world making impact even to the toughest and the cruelest individual. Hence peace started to dominate. The world belongs to those who prefer peace over violence.
Several individuals and organizations promoted peace in the past and many have continued the legacy of promoting peace. Just because of peace loving people who dominate the world by huge ratio, the world has sustained. Acknowledging the importance of peace majority of peace loving people and institutions across the world celebrate International Peace Day with great enthusiasm. On the context, MASTERPEACE NYC NEPAL has plans to observe International Peace Day 2015 in the special way. MASTERPEACE NYC NEPAL has given a thought to establish peace through music and we know this is a possibility.
