On the full moon day of Vesak, a festival commemorating the birth, enlightenment and parinirvana of the Buddha, we present:
Prayer of the mothers for peace with the singer Yael Deckelbaum
Convinced of the special contribution that the female energy can make in the realisation of a more peaceful society and in conflict resolution, Lama Gangchen deeply appreciates the song ‘Prayer of the Mothers’ and has invited the singer-songwriter Yael Deckelbaum (www.yaeldeckelbaum.com/en/home) to visit the centre to meet with the community of Albagnano.
The Canadian-Israeli singer has collaborated with Women Wage Peace (a women’s movement that organises marches and shows all over the world with the presence of tens of thousands of people) and has composed the song “Prayer of the Mothers”. This music video has almost 5 million views on YouTube (www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyFM-pWdqrY).
