City spreads thoughts of peace, love to UNESCO
The presence of armed guards at the Charies de Gaulle airport was a shock to many of the Toowoomba delegates asked to present their thoughts about peace and harmony at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The group of local residents from a variety of fields were invited by the city’s Pure Land Learning College Association to make the quick journey to the French capital last week. Their presentation was a part of a lofty event organised by the Sri Lankan government to celebrate “Vesak” or the birth, enlightenment and death of Buddha. The two-day seminar attracted luminaries from around the world including the Pure Land College Association founder, the Venerable Master Chin Kung.
