Peace NOW Symposium in Vienna

In September 2017, the Sakyong traveled to Vienna, Austria to lead the Peace NOW Conference with more than 500 students, and featuring talks and workshops with special guest teachers

The Sakyong had no hesitation when he was asked when peace should happen during the Peace NOW Symposium in Vienna, “Creating Peace in Difficult Times.” The answer was NOW. In his opening talk, the Sakyong posed these questions: “I want to explore a deeper notion of peace, a deeper sense of who we are. Who are we at a fundamental level? Is humanity at an innate level at peace with itself, or is it at war with itself?”
