In today’s modern society, peace and calm seem farther away than ever. Our busy lives and schedules seem to lead us farther away from some things which are close to our reach.
However, 1 million children in Thailand beg to differ. Every year, enormous groups of children from about 5000 schools come together to a Buddhist Temple in Thailand. This is actually a project which is called V-Star, Change the World. This project brings these children at the Phra Shammakaya Temple of Thailand every year and their goal is to meditate for world peace.
Meditation is a very useful practice and as one of the members of the program claims: “If we want to change the world we must start with the small things, so if we want to change the world we need the kids to change first. We believe that changing the world starts with changing ourselves, so when a million kids are doing their best to be a better person, it can really change the world.”
So, if a million kids have the time and will to better themselves, so can the rest of us. Meditation is one practice that can really make us more peaceful and calm and full of positive energy.

In Sanskrit, the word “yantra” comes from the root word “yam,” which means “instrument” or “support,” and “tra,” derived from “trana,” meaning “release from bondage.” A yantra is an instrument, or tool, for meditation and contemplation supports spiritual liberation. There are hundreds of yantra designs related to deities, principles, and planets. Used in ceremonies and rituals, yantra designs can be found on paper or bark, or created from flower petals, ash, and rice.
For mediation practices or “vastu,” the vedic version of feng shui, a yantra is embossed on a square copper plate electroplated with gold. The plates are then ritually “charged” by priests — meaning that the physical objected is “tuned” to a specific vibration or energy. Once charged, the yantra is viewed as a sacred object.
