World Peace

World Peace Ceremony via Zoom

Sunday, September 20, 2020   |    9:00 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. Place: Vermont Zen Center

The International Day of Peace was established by the United Nations in 1981. In 2002 the General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace. We hold our ceremony on a Sunday as close to that day as possible.

The World Peace Ceremony begins with a chanting service, which is followed by quote about peace and then the recitation of the names of all the world’s countries along with the Peace Prayer—“May Peace Prevail in [name of country].”

Please join us on this special day. All are welcome. The ceremony will be in both English and Spanish.
