Creating World Peace, a meditation retreat
with Gen Kelsang Rigpa, National Spiritual Director
We are in a special time when peace is most needed. The good thing is that we can all contribute to it. When we carry peace within our own heart, we increase peace wherever we go. Achieving a sense of peace is not limited to monks, mystics, and hermits. The truth is that we all benefit from peace for our own wellbeing. And, peace can be achieved even in home with family and at work place with co-workers. We know that peaceful people live much happier lives than others.
Peace, inner peace, or peace of mind is a state of being mentally, emotionally, and spiritually at peace in face of daily stresses, anxieties, worries, disturbances, and chaos. It is consciously keeping our mind at peace regardless of external circumstances, including what people might think or say about us.
