Slide 1: The need of the hour…………….. World Peace Slide 2: "World peace is not something that can be realized simply by politicians signing treaties, or by business leaders creating economic cooperation. True and lasting peace will be realized only by forging bonds of trust between people at the deepest level, in the depths of their very lives."Dr. Daisaku Ikeda A story of a man….. : A story of a man….. Slide 4: A Man who breathes for World peace…… Slide 5: Writes for world peace…… Slide 6: Speaks for World Peace … Slide 7: Lives for World Peace…… Story of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda : Story of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, a world-renowned Buddhist scholar and peace activist, has made it his personal mission to engage in more than 1,500 dialogues for peace with such noted world leaders as Dr. Arnold Toynbee, Nobel Laureate and former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Soviet Union President Mikhail  Gorbachev, civil rights leader Rosa Parks, and Dr. Elise Boulding. Story of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda : Ikeda's commitment to peace grows from his experience as a young teenager of World War II. His interactions with second Soka Gakkai president Josei Toda in the aftermath of the war helped shape Ikeda's antiwar sentiments into a philosophy that supports a multifaceted peace movement. Story of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda Slide 10: “Peace is not the absence of war. The surest way to peace is by fostering people of character. It lies in sowing and nurturing the seed of peace – the desire within each individual to respect and embrace other human beings. It’s about fostering self-motivated, empowered individuals who will confront the forces that lead nations to war” - Daisaku Ikeda About SGI….. : About SGI….. The ultimate aim of the SGI is the establishment of a peaceful world. Towards that end, the SGI actively promotes peace as a Non-Government Organization (NGO), affiliated with United Nations. As a broad-based grassroots movement spanning 190 countries, the SGI’s activities typically focus on public education and awareness building on the themes of peace, humanitarian relief, environment protection and human rights. Since the early 1980s, the SGI has sponsored exhibitions that have toured the world with a focus on nuclear disarmament, war and peace, children’s art and sustainable living. Beginning in 1997, the SGI has become an active partner in the international movement to promote the “Earth Charter” as a set of ethics and values for sustainable living. World Peace and SGI…. : The Area of Peace was an SGI peace movement that had its origins in Toda’s Declaration Against Atomic and Hydrogen Bombs. In 1982 SGI sponsored an exhibition called Nuclear Arms: Threat to Our World which was first exhibited at UN headquarters in New York, and since then has been presented in major cities around the world. More than 12 million people in 16 countries have visited the exhibition and viewed displays presenting the horrors of nuclear weapons and war. In addition, SGI initiated humanitarian relief efforts, held fundraising campaigns, and made donations to the office of the UNHCR for refugee relief. In 1993, at the request of the UN, young Japanese SGI members collected nearly 300,000 used radios and presented them to the people of Cambodia through UNTAC. These radios played a great role in helping to facilitate the first domestic elections in that country. World Peace and SGI…. Slide 13: Story of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda Annual Peace Proposals Every January 26 since 1983, President Ikeda has published an annual Peace Proposal on the anniversary of the founding of SGI. In the Peace Proposals, Ikeda consistently emphasizes the importance of the UN and appeals for the reform of the UN as "the congress of humanity." Praising President Ikeda’s long-term support for the UN and several global peace movements, the United Nations has honored Daisaku Ikeda with the UN Peace Award, a UN Special Commendation for Outstanding NGO Activities, and the UN Peace Medal. Story of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda : It is notable that several propositions presented in the Peace Proposals have been realized in international society. For example, Ikeda called for "a global conference renouncing war" and "the adoption of a Declaration for the Renunciation of War." The Hague Appeal for Peace (HAP), the largest civil society international peace conference in history was held in May 1999 in The Hague and created new partnerships between citizens, governments, and international organizations. At the HAP attendees adopted a global statement supporting a culture of peace, urging the abolition of war and the elimination of nuclear weapons, and stating that peace is a human right. The Hague Appeal for Peace and Justice for the 21st Century, and planned continuing actions to achieve their goals. Moreover, the HAP agenda became an official UN document. Story of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda Story of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda : President Ikeda founded several institutions that engage in the peace research. The Institute of Oriental Philosophy (1962) , and The Toda Institute for Global Peace and Policy Research (1996) have attracted the attention of intellectuals all over the world as institutes whose studies contribute to world peace. Story of Dr. Daisaku Ikeda World Citizen : World Citizen In March 2000 the World Citizenship Award was presented to President Ikeda from the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. Ikeda has defined three models of world citizenship, "People as wisdom to perceive the interconnectedness of all life and living things; courage not to fear but to respect differences and strive to learn from people of different cultures; and compassion that extends beyond the near and familiar to all those suffering far away." In conclusion, I would like to share a poem by Daisaku Ikeda: : In conclusion, I would like to share a poem by Daisaku Ikeda: People who live in the 21st centurydon’t aspire only for outer revolutionthey also aspire for sound inner revolutionan individual's peaceful and moderate revolutionwith their philosophy and thought Slide 18: Thank you, Srishty Puri Bharat Soka Gakkai Member
