If you love peace and would like to experience inner peace to create world peace, come and join us in the 1-month training program in Thailand and 11-month peace mission in Thailand or in 6 continental destinations around the world.
Due to the surge of various negativities in the world ranging from political and financial instability, poverty and social inequality, climate change, racial and religious conflicts, violence and terrorism, we are in an urgent mode to bring peace to the world. Without “Peace and Wisdom” in the mind of people, “Greed, Hatred and Delusion” are taking over the world.
It is a vision of the Current Highest Master of The Middle Way Meditation, “Luang Por Dhammajayo” (Ven. Dhammajayo Bhikkhu) that to bring true and everlasting peace to the world, every individual in this world regardless of races and religions, from regular citizen to the leader of the nation, need to experience “Inner Peace.” Through the daily practice of inner peace, each individual will be able to release stress and tension in life and open the door for “Wisdom and Compassion” to come in. When everyone attains universal inner peace, the lasting world peace is possible. Then, it comes the key message of The Middle Way Meditation Institute (MMI), “World Peace through Inner Peace”.
After a great success of Global Light of Peace 2017 (GLOP 2017) on 5 September 2017, with more than 50,000 people from 6 continents around the world joining both on-site and online in our global meditation session for world peace, MMI is planning to move even stronger for World Peace in Year 2018. The theme of GLOP 2017 was “6 Cities, 6 Continents, 1 Celebration” which the event have been organized simultaneously in 6 locations around the world: New York City – USA for North America, Rio de Janeiro – Brazil for South America, Barcelona – Spain for Europe, Maputo – Mozambique for Africa, Iloilo City – The Philippines for Asia and Sydney – Australia for Oceania.
In Year 2018, we aim to expand the network of “Inner Peace Leaders” to cover more areas around the world with the theme “101 Cities, 24 Time Zones, 1 Hour for World Peace.” On full-moon day of 24 September 2018, we will invite peace lovers from 101 major cites around the world to create World Peace through Inner Peace at the same local time from 07.30 – 08.30 pm. of each city. We will start from the first time zone (New Zealand: GMT +12) in which people in those cities experience sunset before the rest of the world and will proceed our global peace activities to the following time zones and continue to the last time zone (United State Minor Outlying Islands: GMT -12). This unique peace event will become the first peace event that happen across the world through 24 Time Zones in 1 Day (24 Hours).
In order to make this Once-in-a-lifetime experience of World Peace through Inner Peace to mankind become a reality in 2018. We need a team of peace-loving and hardworking individuals to work together as “One Team, One Heart, One Goal” for World Peace.
