  33. 33. History A Peace Pole is a monument that displays the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth” in the language of the country where it has been placed, and usually 3 to 5 additional translations. The message is referred to as a peace prayer. The first peace poles outside Japan were constructed in 1983. Since then, an estimated 200,000 have been planted around the world in over 190 countries.
  34. 34. • The idea of Peace Poles was first thought up by Masahisa Goi after WWII in Japan. • Mr. Goi believed that the message and prayer, has the capacity to bring people of various cultures, faiths, and traditions together in the spirit of universal love and oneness by unifying the global heart and mind. • The first seeds of peace were planted in 1955 in Ishikawa, Japan where a small gathering of peace workers gathered around Mr. Goi to listen to his philosophy and visions for a better world. This was the beginning of the World Peace Prayer Society, a genuine peace movement to spread the message and prayer, May Peace Prevail On Earth.
  35. 35. • In 1976, the idea of placing the Peace Message and Prayer on poles began to gain popularity. • When Mr. Goi passed on in 1980, his adopted daughter, Masami Saionji, inherited his legacy and was appointed Chairperson of The World Peace Prayer Society. • The World Peace Sanctuary in Wassaic, NY, is the international home and headquarters of the World Peace Prayer Society, The Peace Pole Project and Peace Pals International.
