Please arrive early as the guided meditation is scheduled to begin at 7:00pm and will last for about 20 minutes.

Almost completely unknown outside of Sri Lanka, Dr. A.T. Ariyaratne, founder of the Sarvodaya Shramadana Movement of Sri Lanka. A true peace advocate, he walks in the footsteps of Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, and the Dalai Lama in an effort to rally ordinary citizens to see the spiritual wisdom of looking beyond their own salvation to help ensure the salvation of others. Dr. Ariyaratne won the Gandhi Peace Prize in 1996, the Niwano Peace Prize, the King Beaudoin Award and many other international honors for his work in peace making and village development. You can read more about him on the invite and on Wikipedia.
