There can never be external peace unless we our self achieve internal peace. Our personal anger and other negativity are like a virus that can be easily transmitted to others. For example, if we become angry with someone it is almost certain they will become angry with us, as a reaction to our hostility. Therefore, we can help improve our world by improving our own mind. Prayers for World Peace are followed by a teaching and meditation. Through practicing meditation and learning new ways of dealing with difficult situations we can experience real improvement in our world.

The first Friday of each month special prayers are made for the benefit of the deceased. Powa Ceremony is performed to try and help the deceased attain the great good fortunate of taking rebirth in a Pure Land.  Everyday millions of beings pass away with little prospect of attaining any freedom from the impure existence of ordinary life. These prayers can definitely benefit others and also create powerful potentialities for us to take rebirth in a Pure Land.
