Fuji Sanctuary, Japan

The seventh annual Symphony of Peace Prayers at Fuji Sanctuary was attended by over 5,500 participants and more than 40 guests who joined together in sending out prayers on the heels of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The ceremony opened with welcoming addresses, followed by peace prayers from six different faiths. Two distinguished guests, Dr. Shlomo Alon and Mr. Tetsuro Ogiwara, addressed participants with optimistic messages for a revived Japan and a peaceful world. The national flags were then carried into the Prayer Field and presented on stage as participants prayed for peace in each country and region on Earth. A Global Peace Meditation and the reading of a poem entitled Creation of the Universe were followed by closing remarks.
