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
Support The Echo
Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.
Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
