 From 6pm on 20th September to 6pm on 21st September 2017

LIVE STREAM CAN BE VIEWED HERE

In celebration of the United Nations’ International Day of Peace and to raise funds for a permanent home for Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, students and supporters of the Centre will continuously recite the Golden Light Sutra (a sacred Buddhist text) for 24 hours non-stop while dedicating the positive energy to world peace and the flourishing of the Dharma throughout Leeds, the north of England and the world!

“This text (Golden Light Sutra) is very precious; it brings peace and happiness and is very powerful to stop violence. It gives incredible protection to the country [where recited] from violence etc. By hearing this text, one’s karma gets purified.” – Lama Zopa Rinpoche

The recitation of the Golden Light Sutra will be streamed live from Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds and we invite you to join us for this international Dharma event.
