Prayers of Compassion
Christmas Eve 2022
with Gen Kelsang Dorje
Come join us for a special Christmas Eve Prayers for World Peace followed by delectable desserts and community get-together.
Without first developing inner peace, world peace will remain impossible to achieve. We all have within us the potential for peace and happiness. Cultivating this potential creates the harmony we seek.
“Our job is to pray for world peace – anytime, anywhere. With compassion, we make dedications and pray to develop and maintain inner and outer peace and harmony. We know there are so many dangers and problems arising right now, war and terrible things. We try to repair, to pacify, to cause all dangers and obstacles to cease through our prayers. With compassion, we pray every day for world peace, that the people of this world will experience peaceful and happy minds and meaningful lives. Through our pure intention, the power of our prayers and particularly through receiving blessings from enlightened beings, results will come, definitely. Our job is to pray.”
– Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, given at the opening of the US Kadampa World Peace Temple, October 2006
