Holland

(September 1996)

 

Netherlands (Holland) showing Amsterdam and the Hague (on the coast)

 

 

 

The canals of Amsterdam are very beautiful.

 

 

 

We took a cruise on the canals (the group included Sharan Das, Yogi Shanti Swaroop, Dr. Reinhart Ruge, and myself).

 

 

 

Many people own boats such as these parked on the other side of this canal intersection.

 

 

 

One of the great institutions of the world is housed in this building in the Hague -- the International Court of Justice or World Court.   Here we have one of the key places in the world which represent the beginnings of world law and the inception of a civilized world order for the first time in human history.

 

 

 

Here I contemplate the grave of the great Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza located in the yard of a Protestant church in Amsterdam.
