THE HARMONY OF PRAYER, THE SOUND OF MEDITATION, THE PEACE OF BÖN
February 13, 2016
It’s hard to believe it has been three years since our first 24 hour Global Prayer Event!
Yeru Bön Center and Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche invite Bön practitioners and friends of Bön to participate in our third annual Global Prayer Event. This is an event where we pray and meditate for world peace and harmony.
Last year’s participation was well over 2,000 people from all over the world. The majority were Bönpos, but we had US soldiers and other non Bönpos praying throughout the world.
We received letters, photos and more from people around the world participating in this incredible event.
This year’s global prayer event will be February 13, 2015, the birth anniversary of Nyamed Shenrab Gyaltsen, the founder of sMenri Monastery, the main monastery of Bön.
On this auspicious day, every prayer we pray is multiplied by 100,000. On that day, we ask all practitioners to pray and meditate for one hour (or more) any time between 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in their local time zones. Gather as a sangha or by yourself, in a private place or in public.
This year, Rinpoche will release a new prayer, specially written at sMenri for this Global Prayer Event, to all registered participants.
This is how it works. Our Global Prayer Event will begin at sMenri Monastery in India, at 7:00 pm local time. His holiness, Monks and Bön practitioners in that time zone will pray the selected prayer and meditate for two hours, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. local India time. Prayers and meditation will continue with the next time zone (going West), until our prayers have gone full circle around the world.
There is no fee for this event. We ask only that you register your participation and time zone by February 11, 2016. After you have registered your name or group name, Yeru Bön Center will send the list of participants to His Holiness at sMenri Monastery. A special blessing will be given to all participants.
During your event, please feel free to post photos or messages of your gathering or meditation on Facebook or twitter. This way, everyone participating around the world can see the individuals and groups gather, uniting all Bön practitioners for this spectacular 24 hour global event.
Participation in all time zones will keep the Global Prayer Event strong and effective.
