Prayers for World Peace


Sundays @ 10:30 – 11:45am. Everyone is welcome!

Prayers are neither small nor passive actions. Rather, they are a force for change in our shared world. Join us to bring peace to our world through the action of meditating together and dedicating our prayers for world peace. The morning includes a guided meditation, talk on Buddhism applied to daily life & a traditional chanted prayer in English. Everyone is welcome – you do not need to be a Buddhist to attend– just drop in! 

Families are welcome to attend; we offer a simultaneous Meditation for Kids Class at 10:30am – 11:45am. This class offers a simple introduction to Buddha’s teachings, emphasizing kindness, respect for others and keeping a happy heart. Children, ages 4 to 11, will learn the importance of loving everyone, being generous, and what to do when they have angry, worried, or unhappy states of minds.
Following the prayers everyone is welcome to come to the World Peace Cafe for brunch which always includes pancakes with toppings, and various other delicious foods such as soup, sandwiches, salad, desserts, coffee and teas.
Where: KMC Maryland, World Peace Temple, 900 East Northern Parkway, Baltimore, MD 21212
Cost: FREE — donations welcome. Suggested donation $5-10/adult & $2/child.  Brunch is $6-8 (less for kids portion).

You can also become a member starting at $40/month and receive discounts while you help to provide a steady level of support for our activities.
