Catch a Love and Joy Wave

Posted By on Thu, Jun 5, 2008 at 8:14 PM

Last November, the Tucson Weekly interviewed UA psychologist Victor Shamas, who leads a weekly chanting circle held near the UA campus. Shamas recently sent us PR about WAVE1, which takes place on June 18 at 7 p.m.

The point of WAVE1 is to send a wave of love and joy around the world by coming together in June 18, 7 pm. in prayer, meditation, chanting, or surfing, and dedicating it to Earth and all of the creatures that live on this planet of ours.

According to the release:

June 18, 2008, is an auspicious date for WAVE1.  Besides being full moon and World Invocation Day, it also marks the Buddhist festival of Saka Dawa, during which the spiritual benefit of our virtuous actions is multiplied by a factor

of 100 million.  We can spread that benefit to everyone we love by including them in this powerful event.

If you plan on participating send an e-mail to, so they can include you on the WAVE1 world map that tracks participants. For more information on WAVE1 go to
