    World Meditation Day at Wat Phra Dhammakaya

     

    This year, Wat Phra Dhammakaya organized a meritorious ceremony accordingly on 3rd August.
    The campaign we promote this year was “World Peace through Inner Peace” to practice meditation in the same time all around the world, and also included the ceremony to offer Pali Scholarship to 158 outstanding temples for well-organized of Pali study and the Offerings Ceremony to the Sangha Community from more than 3,000 temples throughout Thailand.
    Ven. Sanitwong , Director of the Communications Department of Wat Phra Dhammakaya, mentioned that Phrathepyanmahamuni (Luang Por Dhammajayo); the abbot of Wat Phra Dhammakaya and president of the Dhammakaya Foundation, has mentioned about World Peace starts from the Inner Peace. Whereas, Pali is the language of peace as the precious teachings of Lord Buddha were collected in Pali. In order to continue this resolution, the meritorious ceremony is organized on World Meditation Day for its 27th anniversary.
