Since 1987, a global torch relay has taken place around the world every year.

Lingyen Mountain Temple hosted the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run on June 25.

Launched in 1987, this global torch relay is unique in its connection of people and nations with the common – and ambitious – goal of achieving world peace.

Since its inception, the run has visited nearly every country in the world – more than 150 nations and territories – and impacted the lives of millions of people.

The motto of the Peace Run is “Peace begins with me.”

There were 17 runners from different countries, including Poland, Mexico, Australia and the USA.

The runners were welcomed with a ceremony in the temple garden, a beautiful, peaceful place.

The Global Torch Relay was one of the activities on the first day of the series of events, which ran this year from June 25 to July 1.

The squadron was part of the Great Dharma Service on sea, land and air.

The services throughout the week reflected this longing for peace.

Esteemed Buddhist masters from North America and Asia led the ceremonies.

On the first day of the special activities, about 150 volunteers and 400 participants took part in the services.

The Temple website celebrates our planet – the physical/spiritual home and environment of humanity. The goal is to create social harmony and inclusivity.

The events pursue noble goals: “They are dedicated to the security of the nation and the containment of disasters, we repay kindness and pray for blessings.”

Lingyen Mountain Temple is located at 10065 No. 5 Rd.
