Please join with me, body, mind, or spirit, in this very exciting opportunity to contribute our energy to peace, love and harmony! The Dalai Lama is going to be visiting Washington D.C. to host an 11 day Peace Festival. This event is being billed as “the largest gathering for world peace in history.” The official name of the event is Kalachakra for World Peace and according to the publicity materials, its purpose is to “amplify a profound, unshakable commitment of to values such as love, compassion, wisdom and interfaith harmony”. The first day of the peace festival is also the Dalai Lama’s 76th birthday!! He will be dancing and chanting prayers and teachings and Tibetan monks will be creating a sand mandala that, at the closing of the festival, will be swept away as a reminder of life’s impermanence. This is a great time to set our intention on creating a world without wars!!!
Just set aside a few minutes a day from 7/6 till 7/16 and visualize the smiling face of the Dalai Lama. Picture yourself sitting with him, in meditation, and concentrate on compassion within the hearts of all humankind. It is amazing what the group power of thought and prayer can do to save our world.
