The Chandrakirti Meditation Centre is holding an event “Prayers for World Peace” at their
Meditation Centre on Saturday 17th November. They invite all to participate, bringing a prayer from your own faith. We will recite
the prayers together with a motivation to spread world peace and understanding.
After prayers we will have a potluck lunch together and invite you to bring a
dish to share.
We hope you can join us. Looking forward to hearing from you
with confirmation or any other thoughts.
