Our Contribution to World Peace

If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.” - Dalai Lama

The Expanding Light Retreat Staff has been contributing to world peace since 1983 by teaching meditation—one person at a time.

The numbers of students trained in the Hong-Sau technique:

By The Expanding Light Retreat:    36,600

(We very conservatively estimate the number of students trained as of January 2016 at 20,000, and will add students from that date.)

By Graduates of Ananda Meditation Teacher Training:    36,829

Please encourage your students to join Ananda in sharing this prayer of Yogananda's for world peace:

For one minute, say aloud or silently: Lord, fill this world with peace and harmony, peace and harmony.

For 15 seconds, say aloud or silently: Lord, fill me with peace and harmony, peace and harmony.
