Venue: Vishwa Shanti Stupa, Indraprastha Park, Sarai Kale Khan, Delhi 110013
Details: Vishwa Shanti Stupa, also called Peace Pagoda, is commonly known as a Buddhist monument, a symbol of an effort to establish peace on Earth.
It’s a humble endeavour to give the message of the importance of peace in our lives. There are many peace pagodas all over the world, and Vishwa Shanti Stupa in Delhi is an important pillar of this remarkable circle. The Stupa was inaugurated in the presence of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, with the hope to cultivate peace as envisioned by Fujii Guruji.
Further, to create ecology of peace, a Japanese garden has also been developed around the Stupa. The Vishwa Shanti Stupa committee and the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), along with Fujii Guruji established this symbol of peace.
The walk would include:
- An hour long specialised walk programme
- Stilling Session
- Story telling session on basics of Buddhism
- Customised literature
