Peace Lantern Ceremony
7:00pm-9:00pm, Saturday, August 6th
Lover’s Point Cove
Ocean View Blvd & 17th Street, Pacific Grove, CA, 93950
Following the Four Noble Truths teaching, participants are encouraged to join the Peace Lantern Ceremony at Lover’s Point Cove in Pacific Grove. Rinpoche will offer prayers at the ceremony which is part of the Twelfth Annual Hiroshima-Nagasaki Remembrance Day. This beautiful and moving tradition honors those who perished in 1945 and reaffirms our commitment to world peace. Event is free. The Peace Lantern event is sponsored by several peace organizations in Monterey Co. and the Friends/Quakers of Monterey. Schedule includes:
7:00pm: Lantern making and Taiko drumming
7:45pm: Music and messages of hope and peace
8:15pm: Launching of the peace lanterns
A Note About Food: Participants in the “Day of Peace” may bring a trash-less “picnic dinner” to Lover’s Point Cove so we can enjoy a meal together while we also enjoy the Peace Lantern Event. There is also a “Snack Shack” at Lovers Point that sells veggie burgers, hamburgers, etc.
A Call for Volunteers: Volunteers are needed as we prepare to host this public talk. If you are able to post flyers ahead of the event, or would be able to join us from 11:30am-1:30pm on the Saturday of the event (August 6th, after meditation)…we will do some “center cherishing,” cleaning/weeding and setting up for the 5:00pm event.

Thank you everyone!
