Few days away to GLOP 2017

A million peace makers plan to join an online meditation session for world peace on the full moon day in September 2017


The group of peace makers from around the world are looking forward to the exciting event with a gathering of a million people to join the online meditation to create world peace on the 5th September 2017. The event will run simultaneously in six locations in six continents around the world including The Big Top at Luna Park in Sydney, Australia.


The Middle Way Meditation Institute (MMI) believes that world peace can be created by inner peace and many peace makers and meditation groups around the world agree. It is anticipated when the meditation event is undertaken that it will inspire more people to participate. MMI has achieved some large scale international and multi-faith events in the past years.

This year MMI contacted and invited all peace-making groups who agreed with the concept of “World Peace Through Inner Peace” to join hands in organizing the Global Light of Peace 2017. This event will occur simultaneously with six other international cities around the world including New York (USA), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Barcelona (Spain), Mozambique (Africa) and Iloilo City in The Philippines and in Australia MMI in partnership with 60TH Dhammachai Education Foundation will be held the event at The Big Top, Luna Park Sydney from 8.30pm-11.30pm

Global Light of Peace 2017 in each site will include a thirty-minute meditation session, Words of peace from multi-faith spiritual leaders, live peace music and the global light of peace image. Each of the thousands of participants will contribute to the light of peace image. They are representing people in many parts of the world who are now sharing the light of peace. This event will be broadcast live online from six locations and anyone can join.
