The black candle is relit, then the first red candle on the farthest left is lit, then the farthest green candle is relit and then the second red candle on the farthest left is lit.
The principle of Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics) teaches us the practice of shared work and wealth in the world. It urges us to work for economic practices rooted in justice and which express due respect for the dignity of work and the rights of the worker. It supports our struggle to end an artificial and unnecessary global conflict between the economy and ecology, between progress in the world and the plunder, pollution and depletion of it. And it urges us to maintain a sense of kinship in and with the world and to embrace it as sacred space and thus treat it with respect it is due as the foundation and framework of our life.
