Walk for World Peace
Sat, October 10 at 9am
One pleasure many of us still enjoy, even in these strange times, is a neighborhood walk. Enjoying the sunshine, sneaking in a little fresh air over the top of the mask, wishing others well from our hearts as we pass by.
How would you like to combine that simple pleasure with some fundraising for your Dharma Center?
- This year, you’ll walk where you are – in your neighborhood – rather than coming to the Center and walking in a group.
- You can find yourself a small group (family you live with, friends who will physically distance as you walk) and cruise around your own hood!
Gen Rigpa will guide a meditation (online) to set our intention
You’ll put on your peace mask (we’ll send you one!) and head out on your walk, waving at neighbors, wishing love from your heart to everyone you meet.
Don’t forget to take photos!
Grab a snack and a glass of water or a cup of tea, and Zoom with fellow walkers from all over the LA area.
(A kind benefactor will contribute an additional 20% of however much we raise to our overall total!)
Register for the Walk
Register by September 30 to be sure to receive your “Peace is Possible” mask on time. Feel free to register after Sept 30 and we will do our best to get your mask to you on time.

About the Temple
How does this temple build world peace?
Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood was created by Kadampa Buddhist Teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for the purpose of world peace, and as an offering to future generations.
Just seeing the Temple reminds us that we all have the potential to experience lasting peace and happiness, and to achieve the highest spiritual goals imaginable.
As Venerable Geshe-la says, “Without inner peace outer peace is impossible.” We have the power to change by understanding and transforming our mind, thereby creating our own inner peace. The impact of learning to develop inner peace is universal, from our local to global communities. This Temple serves our mission to bring more peace and happiness to the people of Los Angeles through meditation and modern Buddhism. This is our form of public service.
Everyone is welcome.
Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood is a Temple dedicated to bringing peace and happiness to the world, and to removing suffering, through offering the methods of meditation and modern Buddhism.
