A few of us attended the annual “Peace Sunday” event held at the IMAN Cultural Center in Culver City yesterday. The event was an interfaith effort with some wonderful speakers and many lovely people working to make peace an actuality. Our mission was to gather information on how the many different organizations involved sustain themselves. Our fearless leader, Lama Khay’, led the way. She spoke to many different people including Leland Stewart, Chairman of the Peace Sunday Festival Steering Committee.
All experience is preceded by mind,
Led by mind,
Made by mind.
Speak or act with a peaceful mind,
And happiness follows,
Like a never-departing shadow **
Paz – Shalom – Shanti – Peace
