The World Peace Prayer Ceremony is a global celebration of the oneness of life and the human family. With united hearts and minds, participants of the Ceremony are invited to invoke prayers for peace to prevail in the countries and regions of the world. It is a moving ceremonial ritual rising above national boundaries, religion and ideologies giving expression to the universal wish for peace and harmony which lies at the core of every human heart.


The World Peace Prayer and Flag Ceremony was first organized in Japan by Mrs. Saionji in 1983. In 1986, The First International World Peace Prayer Ceremony was organized in the city of Los Angeles introducing this moving Ceremony to an international audience for the first time outside Japan. Since then this Ceremony has been organized on every continent and in every major city throughout the world.


The Purpose of the Prayer and Flag Ceremony is to commune as one in the spirit of the Universal Message and Prayer, May Peace Prevail On Earth and to send your energetic words, thoughts and prayers for peace to prevail on Earth.

"Prayer" means different things to different people. When we use the words "prayer", we are not referring to a conventional prayer of a particular faith or denomination. Our reference and use of the word "prayer" is an affirmation and declaration of the wishes and aspirations that exist within each one of us, in communion with the heart where there is only Oneness, Compassion and Love for humanity.
