I would like to present a piece of good news today because good news makes people happier and the world a better place, a world of hope and smiles.
His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan is the leader of the world community of Ismailis and head of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN). AKDN is the owner of the beautiful school, Aga Khan Junior Academy, in Nairobi Kenya.
On September 12th, 2014, four days ago, the Aga Khan invited the Prime Minister of Canada, Mr Steven Harper, to join him in opening an enormous project that brought happiness to the City of Toronto and Ismailis all around the world.
This was to open THE ISMAILI CENTRE pictured above, which is situated with a new Islamic Museum in a beautiful park, the Aga Khan Park, on Wynford Drive, Toronto, Canada.
At the centre, Ismailis will welcome people of other faiths and backgrounds to share culture, art, peace and learning. Inside there are spaces for many different activities including a theatre, art gallery, library, dining and for serving food for celebrations.
The central space is a place of prayer and meditation which will bring Ismailis together in prayer and in meditation, in voluntary service, and in social, cultural and knowledge-seeking activities.
Outside the center there is a park where people can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings, where trees and gardens have been planted. People can relax here, meditate and experience the happiness of enlightenment.
Ismailis are happy people who want to help bring peace to the whole wide world, which is sometimes a dangerous place.
