Join These Zen-Like Dogs In Celebrating National World Peace Meditation Day

Marvel at these canines who eschew the wild life for a pursuit of inner tranquility.

Some people celebrate New Year’s Eve by swaddling themselves in the trappings of the party life and reveling in excess until the early hours of the morning. Others might prefer to take a cue from December 31 also being National World Peace Meditation Day and engage in some quiet and tranquil contemplation about the year that has just passed and the days to come. Handily, that’s exactly what I like to think the peaceful pooches in this photo roundup will be doing. Keep it Zen!

Sometimes there is a fine line between approaching the zenith of contemplation and actually falling asleep while standing up.

A true Zen master always appreciates the inherent value of his friends.

There is nothing in the official rules of mental relaxation that says a warm and comfy couch cannot be a part of one’s daily meditation routine.

Group meditation sessions are an excellent way to achieve a calm state of mind.

This reposed Labradoodle certainly knows the value of submitting yourself to a quiet moment in the winter sunshine.

Behold the grand contemplation of form!
