Dear all,
Please find our August schedule below.

A Prayer for Peace

By the blessings of Enlightened and Compassionate ones,
By the power of my positive actions of three times,
And my prayers of pure aspiration,
May wars, conflicts, epidemics
And all other maladies dissolve in this world,
And may the earth and all who live on this earth enjoy the abundance of wellbeing,
May all learn to live lovingly with each other.
