On May 20, 2018, the Divine Spark IN was introduced to thousands of people around the world at the 2018 Symphony of Peace Prayers.
The Symphony of Peace Prayers (SOPP) is a global event in which people from different faiths and cultures come together to pray for peace on earth. It has been held annually since May 2005 at Fuji Sanctuary in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. In the first part of the program, prayer leaders from a variety of faiths and spiritual traditions lead participants in prayers for peace representing their respective traditions. Everyone joins in offering the prayers of different faiths, creating a beautiful symphony of prayers and transcending boundaries of faith and culture. The second half of the program is a prayer ceremony calling for peace in each country and region on earth using the national flag of each country.
In 2015, the SOPP was the venue for the launch of the Fuji Declaration, a call to awaken the ‘divine spark’ in the spirit of humanity and create a harmonious, flourishing civilization. The Fuji Declaration has been endorsed and supported by thousands of individuals and organizations all around the world. In 2016, the Fuji Declaration initiated the Soul of WoMen campaign for harmony between the divine feminine and divine masculine.
At this year's event, host organization Byakko Shinko Kai introduced SOPP participants to the Divine Spark IN, as a new method for activating the divine spark within humanity, for the creation of a new spiritual civilization and a world at peace.
