" Bhutan prays for World Peace"
An eight day prayer ceremony was conducted in the capital city to offer special prayers for world peace and wellbeing of all sentient beings. The prayer was led by His Holiness, the chief abbot with 1000 monks. Thousands of devotees queued up as early as 5:00 am in the morning to receive the blessings. The special prayers began from 6:00 am and continued till 6:30 pm in the evening.
The monks read special scriptures and conducted rituals and traditional offerings for peace.
130 guardian of peace Volunteers and 120 Scouts congregated to offer their services to help the crowd to grab their seats, serve food & refreshment and usher the people inside the tents. The volunteers also assisted in traffic control as well.
The crow control and management was organised by the office of the Guardian of Peace.
Tens of thousands came to visit the place of workshop to participate in the special prayers for world peace.
It was a wonderful eight day special prayers and an outstanding opportunity for messengers of peace ambassadors to spread the message of peace.
