The Dalai Lama on Creating World Peace

World peace is the ultimate expression of Ahimsa, or non-violence, which is the very first teaching of yoga. Will you participate in making it a realtiy?

In the next week there are two days that are dedicated to peace on a global level, September 21st and September 26th.

Monday, September 21st is Peace One Day. It’s a global cease fire and celebration of peace recognized by the UN and countries around the world.  What will you do for peace? Post a comment below to announce your contribution.

Saturday, September 26th, there are gatherings around the world called Earth Dance. People are coming together at festivals, small groups, and even on their own to join in a Prayer for Peace at 4pm Pacific Standard Time.

“It’s our moral responsibility” says the Dalai Lama in the Peace One Day film that explains about Peace One Day.

“I think global events are a really hopeful sign.
When something happens on one side of the planet,
it naturally effects the other side.
Afterall, we all share the same blue planet.”

-His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in conversation with
Earthdance founder Chris Deckker (Dharamsala)

Prayer for Peace – Join in by saying these words at 4pm PST on Sept. 26th

“We are one global family
All colors, All races
One world united.
We dance for peace and the healing of our planet Earth
Peace for all nations.
Peace for our communities.
And peace within ourselves.
As we join all dance floors across the world,
let us connect heart to heart.
Through our diversity we recognize Unity.
Through our compassion we recognize Peace.
Our love is the power to transform our world
Let us send it out

  1. I’m going to teach 2 yoga classes devoted to peace Monday, September 21st. One is a Restorative Bliss class – 9am at Let’s Move in Kamloops. The other, a karma yoga class, is by donation with all proceeds going to helping empower people in Guatemala out of poverty. 7pm in Valleyview.

    I’m also going to Earthdance on the 26th! This will be my third Earthdance, though I have said the prayer for peace at 4pm on the years I haven’t been able to make it to a gathering.

    What about you?
