About 12seconds for Peace

'12seconds for Peace' is a collaborative video-arts project, designed to raise the energy of manifestation for peace on our planet and in our individual hearts and minds. When humanity manifests internal peace and recognises the natural order of the human condition, then peace in the world will follow. The proceeds from 12seconds for Peace will go to support and aid the various good causes of a number of charitable and non-profit organisations around the world.

12seconds for Peace - Giedre Aleksandravičiūtė

In 2008, at the request of the Lithuanian Sai Baba organisation, a celebration took place across major Lithuanian towns and cities that had participants observing five minutes silence for world peace. In Kaunas, Vilnius, Klaipeda, Panevezys, Siauliai and other places, people dressed in white congregated in the main squares and sat in prayer and meditation and sent out their desire and request for peace in the world.

In Kaunas - the former capital of Lithuania, now a beautiful town that attracts many tourists each year, Giedre Aleksandravičiūtė and her friends gathered as a part of this day of celebration and prayer. Giedre is a kite-maker and she and her friends, in an act reminsicent of Tibetan Buddhist practices, flew kites to which they had attached their dreams and wishes for peace in the world.

The video that Giedre has submitted to 12seconds for Peace contains some of the photos of that event in Kaunas back in 2008. Thank you so much for this beautiful video Giedre! You can find out more about Giedre's work as a kite-maker on her website at: www.aitvarai.lt

The soundtrack to this video, made with Tibetan bells, is taken from a recording by 'Sounds from Source'. Sounds form Source, contacted 12seconds for Peace sometime ago to donate an audio recording to the project for the use of anyone who wanted it for their video. There are many beautiful audio recordings available on the Sounds from Source website, so if you are stuck with knowing what to put on the soundtrack of your 12seconds for Peace video, then you could do no better than to check out their website here: www.soundsfromsource.com You will also find them in the sidebar here under 'Useful Resources'.

Thank you to everyone at Sounds from Source for your wonderful contribution to this video!
