15 Days of Prayer for The Buddhist World:
In this edition, the guide considers those rhythms of our lives, and explores how Buddhists mark some of life’s major events – birth, marriage, death – and how they reflect deeper beliefs, hopes and fears.
You can pray through this guide at any time during the year, but we encourage as many as possible to use it from January 18 to February 1, 2022, which is just before the start of the Chinese New Year on February 2. Chinese New Year is recognized and celebrated in many Buddhists cultures.
Buddhism is a complex and diverse system of beliefs, practices, and cultures. This guide does not attempt to provide a complete explanation of its varied expressions. The aim of this guide is to give you a glimpse into the lives of Buddhist people in different contexts around the world, to inspire you to pray for them and receive more of God’s heart for them.
