|Finding Inner Peace in Puerto Vallarta|
Joy! - PVNN
A group of Tibetan monks from the Gashar Tawon Khangston Monastery sat down with the people of Puerto Vallarta to pray for our environment on Tuesday May 15th. We gathered just in front of the Cultural Center on the Rio Cuale where more essential trees are waiting to be slaughtered and replaced with concrete, and for an hour we meditated with these extraordinary priests.

They pleaded with us to help save the environment and spoke of how too many trees are being cut down, and that this results in less rain and more illness.
The monks invited us to invoke our own personal Gods and Goddesses as we joined with them in prayer to purify the earth and remove obstacles and negativity. They ended the ritual chanting with blessings for each person's health and luck and happiness, asking that our wishes be granted also.
This is the ninth year the Vallartan Inkarri Multicultural Association www.inkarri.org has sponsored a group of Tibetan monks to go on tour promoting inner peace. The goal of the tours is to raise money to rebuild the monasteries destroyed by the Chinese, and help support the monks, half of which are children.
They will be in Vallarta until the 24th of May providing a variety of services including Tibetan Astrology, Tibetan Medicine, Pujas for both home and business, Tantric purification and a five hour fire ceremony which also includes the famous sand mandala.
