For Anytime Fitness in Bangkok, a Blessing
A monk’s blessing helped to open a gym in Bangkok, Thailand.
It’s not every day that a Buddhist monk blesses your franchise, but that’s what happened last week at the first Anytime Fitness gym to open in Bangkok.
According to Maurice Levine, the master franchisee for Anytime Fitness in Thailand: “Buddhism remains the dominant religion in the Far East. His prayers were for all people: Evoking the presence of great compassion, let us fill our hearts with our own compassion, towards ourselves and towards all living beings. Let us pray that all living beings realize that they are all brothers and sisters, all nourished from the same source of life.”
We thought that was a soothing antidote to all the icky news hitting our inboxes these days, and we thank Anytime's Mark Daly for sending it along.
