WPF Tour in the Netherlands 10 – Venlo

VISIT 10:  WPF Venlo 4 June 2022

Pass on the light to younger generations

The Julianapark in Venlo is a beautiful park with very large old trees, a museum, a nice terrace. The WPF monument is placed on a star-shaped square surrounded by small hedges.

I visited the flame with Gijs, an 82 years old DRU friend, who had joined the inauguration of the flame in 2005. The flame inspired us to talk about the importance of sharing  experiences and pass on life wisdom to younger generations. We read sloka’s from the Bhagavad Gita chapter 16, learning the insight of sacrificing to Krishna everything in life.

We finished with the ‘light’ sloka in chapter 15, 12:

The light which resides in the sun, the moon and in fire, illuminating the whole world – know this light to be Mine.

This summer I got the idea to visit all WPF monuments in the Netherlands. I have not seen all yet and I would love to meet the people behind the monuments: they care for the flames and they spread the light through all kind of activities. How are they touched by the wpf? What are they motivated by?
