350.org: Uniting for Climate Action

350.ORGOctober 24th is the day for Climate Change Action. Scientists tell us that 350 parts per million of CO2  in our atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity. The current level is 387. The United Nations will soon be hosting it’s annual meetings on climate change in Copenhagen with the intent of  creating a “comprehensive, ambitious and fair international climate change deal.” This year, many organizations have banded together to give citizens of the planet a voice as these discussions are going on. The organization is known as 350.

People all over the world have created a wide array of events that are being publicized by 350; currently over 3500 actions are listed in 161 countries. Here at the Ashram, plans for our event have been in progress for about a month. In support of this day of climate action, we are asking you, our global community to join us by pledging to do ten Divine Light Invocations on the 24th. The Divine Light Invocation is a standing meditation practice that is one of the core practices and teachings of Swami Radha. It is a powerful spiritual practice and creator of change. For more information and instructions on how to perform the Divine Light Invocation, click here. If you would like to purchase the full Divine Light Invocation audio album with instructions digitally from iTunes, you may click here. If you are new to the Divine Light Invocation, some ideas of things that you can put into the Light are; the planet, a group of people, a tree, a child and the figure 350. It is important that the image or symbol be positive and support climate action.

If you haven’t already registered, you can visit our event page on 350.org by clicking here and filling out the RSVP information section. There is also a complete listing of events sorted geographically if you are interested in taking part in other 350 events in your region.

Divine Light InvocationRecently, Lightwaves joined over 13,000 blogs and came together to post about climate change in support of Blog Action Day. In our article, Blogging For Climate Change, we discussed many of the initiatives that the ashram has committed to as well as some recent events and a video interview (Which was selected as being one of the “Top 7 Videos You Should See” from Blog Action Day 2009).
