Prayers for World Peace

October 4, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Wednesdays  |  7:00 – 8:00pm | Starts Oct 4

Creating the Inner Conditions for World Peace: Wednesday evening Meditation & Chanted Prayers

Free class

These Wednesday evening classes consist of special prayers for World Peace and an opportunity for reflection. These prayers show us how to generate a mind of loving kindness and how training in love, compassion and patience can turn every daily situation, even difficult ones, into opportunities for spiritual growth.

These prayers for world peace were prepared by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche and extracted from texts by Bodhisattva Shantideva and Bodhisattva Langri Tangpa. They help us to receive inspiration and increase peace throughout the world. Each session will include meditations and a short, 10 minute teaching from ‘The New Eight Steps to Happiness’ by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. This book is a commentary to Bodhisattva Langri Tangpa’s Eight Verses of Training the Mind, a famous poem written almost one-thousand years ago but as relevant today as it was then. 

Simply drop-in.
