However, 1 million children in Thailand beg to differ. Every year, enormous groups of children from about 5000 schools come together to a Buddhist Temple in Thailand. This is actually a project which is called V-Star, Change the World. This project brings these children at the Phra Shammakaya Temple of Thailand every year and their goal is to meditate for world peace.
Meditation is a very useful practice and as one of the members of the program claims: “If we want to change the world we must start with the small things, so if we want to change the world we need the kids to change first. We believe that changing the world starts with changing ourselves, so when a million kids are doing their best to be a better person, it can really change the world.”
So, if a million kids have the time and will to better themselves, so can the rest of us. Meditation is one practice that can really make us more peaceful and calm and full of positive energy.
