Mass prayers for world peace held at Leh

By Super Admin

Leh, Mar 17 (ANI): Hundreds of residents and even tourists took part in a spiritual congregation at Leh in Ladakh.

All of them offered prayers for peace to prevail in the world.

This annual ritual of reciting 'Om Aa Hum Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hum', the sacred mantra of Saint Padmasambhava was organised by the Leh-based Lamdon Society, a voluntary forum active in social welfare and academic activities.

Morup Namgayl, the founder-member of Lamdon Society said that the collective prayers are in the cause of global peace and prosperity of mankind.

"Everyday is special, but according to the Buddhist calendar, our first month is very special. In this month, a special prayer is being held in every village. We have our sacred mantra and people repeat this mantra thousand times. Along with this mantra, Lamas perform a ritual and people also join them. The main purpose is for peace to prevail in the world," said Morup Namgayl, founder-member of Lamdon Society, Leh.

Among those who offered prayers was the elderly Buddhist monk Chogon Rinpoche who incidentally has been participating in this annual congregation for the past six years.

In his sermon, Rinpoche gave invaluable tips about purification of the mind which ultimately would lead to world peace. (ANI)
