On Wednesday April 20th, 2016, Wat Phra Dhammakaya New Castle organized a meditation session for locals living around the area to come together to learn basic meditation, Dhamma, and practice meditation. On that day, there were about 11 locals that came to participate in the activities of the meditation session. They were also able to pay homage to Most Ven. Phrathepyanmahamuni for his 72nd birthday anniversary. They got to learn about who he is, his projects in promoting world peace through inner peace and his ultimate vision for everyone to attain inner peace through meditation so that eventually the world will be at peace. The attendees were able to practice meditation as well which made them felt relaxed, calm, and peaceful.
