Message from Her Holiness Shinso Ito at the Shinnyo Fire and Water Ceremony on the sacred grounds of Shinnyo Yana

June 18, 2022
Tokyo / Murayama, Japan

The earliest origins of life were nurtured by fire and water, inherently opposing elements.

Much in the same way, there are opposing views and values that often become sources of conflict and division.

Today's ceremony of fire and water is about celebrating our differences with harmonizing forces. With its awakening energy, we hope to inspire each person to bring out their unique goodness and let it shine through. This is what the rites we conduct at Shinnyo-en are all about.
