At KMC LA, one of our most joyful events each year is our annual Walk for World Peace, a day of fun and fundraising. This year, we’re so happy to be able to assemble together again—in person!—at our beautiful temple in Hollywood, to walk together and then enjoy a picnic lunch.
A kind benefactor will contribute an additional 20% of however much we raise to our overall total!
9:30-10:00am REGISTRATION Check-in and receive your Walk for World Peace t-shirt.
10:00 am GUIDED MEDITATION at the Center. Gen Rigpa will lead a meditation, setting our intention for the walk.
10:30 - 11:30am WALK TO GRIFFITH PARK The actual walk for World Peace takes us roughly 1.3 miles from Kadampa Meditation Center to the park. It’s a wonderful opportunity to practice cherishing love—wishing happiness from our hearts to all those we pass. P.S. Dogs are very welcome on the walk!
11:30am PICNIC LUNCH Bring a dish to share if you wish. We’ll be providing food too, so there will be plenty!

How does this temple build world peace?
All funds raised go to support KMC LA's efforts to help people in the LA area develop peaceful minds, thereby increasing inner peace and world peace. As our founder Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (Geshe-la) says, “Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible.”
Funds raised will also go to the International Temples Project (ITP), established by Geshe-la with the aim of creating meditation centers worldwide, places where people can develop inner
peace through the practice of meditation. The ITP serves the people of Los Angeles and we, in turn, are part of a global community dedicated to creating world peace.
