Show your empathy to my frustration
Calm down my playful mind
Kiss your compassion over my heart
Balance the peace in this seeking soul.
This Sabai is not mine alone,
Help me share happiness with the world
My every heartbeat can generate love
The dream that is not mine alone.
I never cared more for your protection
I am not chicken-hearted, with no feelings
Just be with me in this path,
My path to eternal Sabai.

This is the premise behind the inner peace workshop arranged by South Asian Youth Society (SAYS) on 2nd of October 2014 at the EMK Center, Dhaka. The event Peace In, Peace Out was a unique initiative by any youth group in Bangladesh as it incorporated lectures and guided meditation as a means to cultivate inner peace.
