Memorial service for all victims of war and prayer for peace (Remembrance Sunday)

The First World War ended on 11 November 1918. On the occasion of Remembrance Sunday, we pray for world peace and wish that all victims of the war, British and non-British alike, and both combatants and civilians, may attain a peaceful state in the beyond.

By revering the Buddha through the sincere recitation of Kyoten (the Lotus Sutra), we earnestly offer and transfer the merits to the spirits of war victims and all spirits in the ten directions, related and unrelated to us. We also read passages about our approach to peace and deepen our understanding by Hoza (a Dharma circle).

This event is open to anyone, including non-members. We are happy to welcome you all. You can actively involve yourself in the talks, or just listen.

To learn more about our philosophies and activities on peace, we recommend A Buddhist Approach to Peace.
