Currently the international situation becomes unstable, and conflicts occur frequently around the world. On the other hand, as it is said it's the era of "everyone is seeking peace". We hope everyone can live everyday in calm with ones you care, families, relatives, trustworthy friends, loved ones. And we hope that everyone wants, seeks such a "peaceful world" and that it'll be so.
This time, for 3-days from October 21 (Friday) to 23 (Sunday), at Muroto City, Kochi, where many cultures were born and certified as a World Geopark by UNESCO, we pray for the peace of the "True world peace" to be born and will spread it to the world.
"Patchwork · Mandala" known as a symbol of peace.
"Prayer of Homura (the fire)" which symbolizes the world's prayers and wishes.
Through experiences of these two events of peace, we hope it'll be the chance to look back the bond, the connection between you and others. Let's make it the day of beginning to a bright, peaceful world pass to next generations in 10 years, even 100years.
There will be two experiential venues: the Prayer of Homura (fire), and the Patchwork-Mandala.
144, 000 peaceful prayers Day 1, Friday 21st Oct.
will be held in a special ceremony program to pray for the world's permanent peace.
The event will start with the opening declaration by Executive Committee Masahiro Ogawa. And then, we will perform a ceremony of the "Prayer of Homura" to start the fire. After that, we'll move to the Hotel Myozyo which located on just across the road. All participants will have some moments to share awareness for peace through the lecture by Mr. Katsuhito Funai, the representative director of Funai head office and other special guests. And at the end, we'll hold a ceremony party to welcome every one of you participants gathering from all over the country.
※ There will be no exhibition of the Patchwork-Mandala on Friday the 21st.
※ Participation fee for the party is 5,000 yen, not included in the tour fee.
"Patchwork-Mandala", the world's largest and impressed more than 100, 000 people will be exhibited!
This will the 4th exhibition in Japan, first in 10 years. 10,000 people from 16 countries were involved in making the Mandala beyond the boundaries of country, race, religion, politics and stitched together with the wish of "world Peace". The size is 70m in length and 50m in width and that's the world's largest for patchwork-mandala. It's about the size of a baseball ground.
If you'd like, please let us know and you can touch, feel, unfold and fold the Mandala with your family and friends. You may be able to see the Patchwork-Mandala again in next 10 years, but this might be the first and the last chance to touch freely. Don't miss the chance to make great memories and bonds with your family and friends.
We will burn a "Peace plate" containing a message of peace gathered from all over the world.
Since ancient times, wishing and prayers have been done by using flames.
Following its customs, we will burn the plate to sublimate the messages for world peace.
Currently, more than 2, 000 peaceful prayer plates are being delivered one after another every day from all over the world .
Each plate contains a message for peace.
On the day of the event, the plates will be burnt at 【Myozyolaieiji】temple where at the east coast of Muroto City.
