On May 14, Fuji Sanctuary will be hosting its 13th annual Symphony of Peace Prayers, and SOPP ceremonies and prayer gatherings will be taking place all across the globe.
In her message for SOPP 2017, Byakko Chairperson Masami Saionji has written the following:
Today, our world is at a critical juncture, with volatile atmospheres building up in numerous countries. Many people no longer know what to believe, and vortexes of distrust are popping up in one place after another. In these circumstances, people who believe in humanity’s divine nature and pray for world peace are the light of hope in this world.
The existence of people who join hands in a spirit of oneness and work tirelessly for world peace is greater than we might imagine. It is the mission of this year’s SOPP to see such people take the initiative in reviving humanity’s divine spark and restoring balance between the divine feminine and divine masculine.
Watch SOPP 2017 live!
This year’s SOPP ceremony will once again be broadcast live online on the SOPP Ustream page. Tune in at 10 am in Japan (click here for local time). The recorded broadcast will also be available after the ceremony at the same web address. For more details about the theme and program for this year’s SOPP, please visit the SOPP 2017 page.
