A dramatic peace portrait of the General Secretary of the Japanese Embassy receiving a Lotus with one of your prayers from a Muslim youth
We then asked you, our 1Mandala followers to share your prayers for Japan on our Facebook page. The prayers that you posted, the youth wrote onto their papers before transforming them into lotuses.
The lotus were presented this week in a mandala interfaith prayer ceremony and ritual in front of the Japanese Embassy. It was attended by leaders of half a dozen faiths. The centerpiece lotus, shown here, was handed by Jafarri to the General Secretary of the Embassy. It is a beautiful multi layered symbol of our interconnectedness across times of renewal, catastrophe, and culture.
