Peace Poles - Prayers for the World

The pole says...May Peace Prevail On Earth, six times, in as many different languages.
Masahisa Goi, founder of The Peace Pole Project, wants you to know this... If you fling all of your thoughts into these simple words, and, from this prayer keep living your lives anew, before you know it your individualistic or cliquish feelings will diminish, and you will feel humanitarian love welling up from within. Gradually, the individual's character will be approaching wholeness, and the person's lifestyle will strike a harmonious note - which is the greatest thing an individual can do for world peace.
These poles serve to remind us to keep peace alive in our thoughts, words and actions every day.

The peace pole project was founded 52 years ago by Masahisa Goi, a young man who lived through World War II and longed for peace. The project is carried on by the World Prayer Society (http://www.worldpeace.org/), a non-profit, non-denominational organization. There are now 200,000 plus peace poles erected in more than 200 countries across the world.

St. Rose Hospital in Las Vegas, NV welcomes you to come and lay your hands on one of the peace poles on their property and invite peace into your heart.

There are also peace poles at these extraordinary locations:

Magnetic North Pole, Canada
Confucious Burial Site, Taiwan
Pyramids of El Giza, Egypt
Gorky Park, Russia
Findhorn Foundation, Scotland
Robben Island, South Africa
Jordan River, Israel

There should be Peace Poles in every country on Earth.

I have tried to get to the one on Robben Island but sadly every time I get to Cape Town the tour is full :(

Would love to go to Findhorn, it is the most amazing place on Earth.
