The Dhammakaya Foundation and Wat Phra Dhammakaya shared their objective to develop inner peace in the world and for all humankind on Earth Day of each year. On 22nd April 2014 (2557 B.E.) Buddhist monks and thousands of Buddhists across Thailand and all over the world gathered to meditate together and spread the inner purity arising from meditation to protect the world and to preserve peace.
In 1970, the Honorable Gaylord Nelson, a United States Senator and passionate advocate for protecting the environment, helped establish April 22nd as Earth Day, the national day for the environment. His ambitious endeavor compelled the World Federation of Buddhist Youth (WFBY) to examine methods to keep the most important human resource – our mind – pristine and to safeguard it from thought, speech or action
