Prayers for World Peace with Guided Meditation

June 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Prayers for World Peace is a free meditation class that gives us the opportunity to develop a warm and loving heart. Classes include two guided meditations, a talk and inspiring prayers for world peace.

Prayer Booklet: available to borrow or purchase.

Everyone is welcome. This class is FREE.


“World peace is very important; we cannot ignore this now. Once something happens, it will be too late. This world is now, as you know, very delicate, very fragile, and very sensitive. It is almost as delicate as the life of a single person; the world situation is so delicate.

 

This is because there are so many disagreements. Political leaders are ready to fight; everybody is preparing weapons ready to fight, and are challenging each other. So we religious practitioners need to offer prayers because prayers are very powerful. This is because of our pure motivation, the powerful words of the prayers themselves, and especially at such times enlightened beings will bestow their blessings upon us, our environment and other living beings. 

So we should pray for world peace. We have had two world wars. If there is a third world war this will almost destroy the world because every country has very powerful weapons, and it is very easy to destroy the world. So I would like to suggest that every center organizes prayers for world peace at any time when local people can gather and pray for world peace.”
