Entertainment in the Byron shire for the week beginning 1 December, 2021

All your entertainment news in one brilliant place

It’s not often ceremonies are held to bring peace to the universe. If you watch mainstream media it’s hard to avoid corporate-sponsored politicians whipping up war and terror hysteria. Thankfully Byron Shire bucks the trend to mindlessly follow such insanity. Leading a pathway to peace last weekend were the Tibetan Gyuto monks, who were at the Crystal Castle to celebrate the second birthday of the World Peace Stupa, which is only one of seven worldwide. Thousands attended for blessings and prayers of peace. Photos Tao Jones
