sunday, march 17, 7 - 7.30pm special prayers for world peace for everyone in christchurch
Throughout the world we are sharing the sadness and shock of this horrific occasion in Christchurch.
From 7 – 7.30pm tonight Sunday 17th March at Prayers for World Peace at Amitabha Centre, we shall make prayers with Kelsang Phunwang for all those who have died and for the many people who are suffering.
Everyone is welcome to come along.
Following Prayers for World Peace, you are also welcome to join interfaith memorial prayers at the Catholic Cathedral , 197 Broadway Ave from 7.30pm onwards. These are prayers of support and condolence with members of the interfaith group.
When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides, and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso - The New Meditation Handbook.
Our programmes are open to everyone - newcomers and experienced meditators, young, old, working, retired, individuals and families. We welcome people from all faiths and those who do not subscribe to any faith. You do not have to be a Buddhist to take part in our programme and to benefit from it.
