The members of three Colorado Buddhist communities met in Colorado Springs at All Souls Unitarian Church, in the hopes of helping to bring healing to the world. The event coincided with Earth Week, and consisted of a 24-hour chant in the Pali language. KRCC’s Bob Thomason produced this audio postcard of the event.
