    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.
