Manila, Philippines

The SOPP ceremony in Manila was held at St. Paul College in Pasig, with a pre-ceremony mandala-writing workshop. Participants began by focusing on their interconnectedness with people around the world, then offered universal prayers for world peace and prayers from different faiths and traditions. During these prayers, a musical group from the college performed in the background. Afterwards, participants offered greetings to each other to express their oneness of mind and spirit. They joined in a dance around the peace pole and listened to a message of solidarity and a poetry reading to close.
