Yesterday, PBS’s Religion & Ethics Newsweekly reported on the Shinnyo Lantern Floating for Peace — the first event of its kind. The program describes their report this way:
On Sunday, September 22nd, thousands of New Yorkers gathered for the first Shinnyo Lantern Floating for Peace in Central Park. Orchestrated by Shinnyo-en, an international Buddhist community, more than 2,200 candle-lit paper lanterns with individually written messages of peace were set afloat onto a large reflecting pool in the center of Trump Rink, in honor of people who have dedicated their lives to the cause of peace.
