Time: 3-7pm
Friday, May 16
Time: 9am-6pm

Join the Fast Join the Prayers and Meditation Support the Monks and the People of Burma Supporters are invited to join the monks as they fast with alarm and grief for their country. Please come and support this courageous, peaceful action. They petitioned the United Nations to take action immediately in Burma before more people die of starvation through willful government neglect. If you would like to join the fast, you are very welcome!

The monks will eat their last meal Thursday morning and then will break the fast Saturday morning. If you wish to fast for any of that time, or part of that time, please do. Please wear white if you are fasting so that you can be identified. All are welcome to come and meditate and pray with the monks. The more the better, and the stronger the message will be. These days of fasting, meditation, and prayers is sponsored by the International Burmese Monks Organization, (International Burmese Monks Organization, IBMO)
