Interfaith gathering - 'World Peace Pilgrimage'
'Go to the sacred places of the Earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work' - Mayan elder
If you live in the States - as many of my readers do - you may be interested in the annual 'World Peace Pilgrimage' to Mount Baldy.
Revered for it's powerful energies, Mount Baldy is located in the San Gabriel Mountains, 50 miles east of Los Angeles. It has been worshipped by the San Gabrielino/Tongva native Americans for generations - and for the last 50 years, by The Aetherius Society and other religious followers.
With over 200 people coming together to send 'love and light to the world' and blessings to Mother Earth;
'the interfaith World Peace Pilgrimage is an inspirational and deeply spiritual experience bringing people of all faiths together for a common and noble cause. It is an experience which you, your friends and family will find truly memorable and uplifting amid surrounding natural beauty.
Pilgrims from all cultures have been climbing Holy mountains throughout history to send out spiritual energy to the world and for their own personal enrichment. In these critical and challenging days, spiritual energy is needed more than ever...
Ceremonies are held in three different locations upon the mountain so that people of all ages and hiking ability can participate. At each of these locations the ceremony will include prayers, mystic chants and sacred music from several different spiritual traditions...'
"It is good that all the paths, all the traditions ...(come) together for one purpose" - Venerable Bhante Pannaloka
