Jinrui Aizenkai urgently appeals for world peace in this time of global crisis. We ask those world leaders who have the power to determine where wars will or will not be fought to choose the way of peace not the way of violence.
Jinrui Aizenkai is an association working for world peace and for the well-being of all people, transcending barriers of race, nationality and religion, based on an idea that all human beings are naturally brethren and of one flesh.
The Oomoto Foundation, the parent body of Jinrui Aizenkai, conducts daily prayer services for world peace in Japan and around the world. Oomoto’s many friends in other countries have joined us in these earnest prayers.
At no time in history has peace been so keenly sought by so many people. To protect the dignity of life, humanity must use its collective wisdom to eliminate war. Violence in retribution for violence only begets more violence in a never-ending downward spiral.
To realize true world peace humanity must become aware of the dignity of life, and establish universal ethics that value life of each and every one of us. This effort will required frameworks for peace such as World Federation. That is to say, a new World Order based on World Law not swayed by any individual national interest.
In this 21st century, we wish that a fair international society will be constructed on the grounds of law and justice, denying war and violence. We solicit that this century will be the century of realization of eternal peace, bright and full of life with the spirit of universal brotherhood, inter-religious cooperation and the teaching that all religions spring from the same source.
