The Heart of Peace: An Evening of Chant and Meditation with Krishna Das and Sharon Salzberg, at Sixth & I on at 7:30 pm, Sunday, July 10. Tickets are $35 each purchased online or $40 at the door. They are making a special joint appearance in honor of the Kalachakra for World Peace. Their chance meeting in 1971 in Bodhgaya, India, where the Buddha found enlightenment, was the beginning of their individual spiritual journeys and their life-long friendship. Krisha Das is a leading practitioner of kirtan. Salzberg is a prominent voice that brought mindfulness, meditation and Buddhism into the American mainstream.
This event honors the Kalachakra for World Peace Empowerment in Washington, DC offered by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, July 6 – 16, 2011. Kalachakra is a Tibetan Buddhist ceremony that stretches over 11 days. “The Kalachakra, open to all who wish to participate, has the power to benefit all beings on this planet. The Capital Area Tibetan Association welcomes you to join in this historic event, offered with the heartfelt motivation to inspire harmonious relationships and abiding peace in our hearts and in our world.”
