Located at the foot of Mount Fuji in Japan, Fuji Sanctuary is the headquarters of Byakko Shinko Kai, an international grassroots organization founded in the 1950s to further the vision for world peace through prayer. Every year, the SOPP at Fuji welcomes many thousands of participants along with an international group of prayer leaders and guests. This year, leaders in many different fields — including politics, business, science, education, and the arts — will join with religious and spiritual leaders from around the world to celebrate the inauguration of the Fuji Declaration. The Fuji Declaration is an international charter that seeks to awaken the sacred consciousness in all humanity, in order to spur a transformation in our civilization and create a more peaceful, harmonious way of life on the planet Earth.
The greatest peace and joy in life come when we know ourselves to be connected in meaningful and purposeful ways to the whole of Life. Idolatry, as an inner reality, is the awareness of disconnection, of aimlessness, of uncertainty, and unclarity. There need be no external authority delivering the rewards and punishments, since both are simply aspects of the activities themselves. It's the way Life works.
