Conferences dedicated to International United Nations years or decades
Each year, the LGWPF holds International congresses/conferences in Spain, Nepal as well as Italy and Indonesia, with specific observances and dedications of United Nations International Years, Weeks and Days, in support of global principles, such as: World Environment Day, World AIDS Day, World Interfaith Harmony Week. These provide a forum for discussion between scientists, doctors, therapists and philosophers. One of the major aims of the Foundation is to provide documented scientific evidence about the benefits of ancient Tibetan Himalayan healing methods, other natural healing methods and the energetic qualities of spiritual healing. The Foundation also gives a base for constructive dialogue between different cultures in order to create and promote education methods to develop Inner Peace and World Peace. Moreover, since 1995, the LGWPF has been actively promoting and supporting the creation of a permanent United Nations Spiritual Forum for World Peace which was initiated by T.Y.S. Lama Gangchen in June of that year.
