每年,一项名为V-明星改变世界(V-Star Change the World)的活动,将学童带到了泰国一所佛教寺庙进行为期一天的禅修。

组织者声称,最近有百万儿童参加了在曼谷附近法身寺(Phra Dhammakaya)举办的禅修活动。

该寺在过去已经引起了争议,批评者声称禅修练习纯粹是为了炫耀,其他人还将其比作邪教活动。

但该寺庙认为,当百万儿童一起禅修时,可以帮助改变世界。

One million children’ join Buddhist meditation event

BBC News, 14 January 2013

Every year, a project called V-Star Change the World brings schoolchildren to a Buddhist temple in Thailand for a day of meditation.

Organisers claim that one million children attended the most recent event at the Phra Dhammakaya temple near Bangkok.

The temple has attracted controversy in the past, with critics claiming the meditation exercise is simply for show, and others likening its activities to a cult.

But the temple believes that when one million children meditate together it can help to change the world.
