    1,000,000 V-Star children from all over Thailand 6th


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     skynoi sends us this iReport from the Phra Dhammakaya Temple, in the Pathum Thani province of Thailand. Last Saturday, January 28, he was witness to one million Thai children meditate and participate 'in moral activities together' at the 'V-star Change the world' event.

    He says: 'This event brought together 1 million school children from all over Thailand who had good intention to practice self-discipline in accordance with morality in Buddhism. The children had consistently practiced those teaching rules at home for 1 year. After that period of 1 year, the children would get together at Phra Dhammakaya Temple where this project was started. They will join various activities, share experiences, do morality test and meditate together on the Dhamma ground which can accommodate 1 million people. It is a magnificent picture of 1 million children meditating peacefully and orderly. The children stay still just like adults but their eyes look innocent and full of power to bring morality and inner peace that they had practiced to the world population through the song called "Change The World" which they sing together.'
