Byakko Shinko Kai is an international grassroots organization founded to further the vision for world peace through prayer, introduced in the 1950s by Japanese philosopher and spiritual leader Masahisa Goi.
Byakko is a Japanese word meaning ‘white light’. It is the clear and free-flowing light emitted from the deepest and highest state of a human being. Byakko Shinko Kai is dedicated to world peace and the elevation of humanity’s consciousness through easily accessible spiritual principles, starting with the universal message and prayer May Peace Prevail on Earth.
Since 1980, the organization has been chaired by Masami Saionji, Masahisa Goi’s adoptive daughter. In 1998, Fuji Sanctuary became the new headquarters for Byakko’s ongoing activities. It is the site of large monthly peace prayer gatherings and ceremonies, including the Symphony of Peace Prayers ceremony, which was initiated at Fuji Sanctuary and is expanding throughout the world.
Many thousands of people, both inside and outside Japan, are connected to the work of Byakko Shinko Kai. Through their many years of practice, participation and dedication to world peace, the members and friends of Byakko are a precious source of energy that fosters the continuation and growth of Byakko’s work for peace.
Over the last decades Byakko Shinko Kai has expanded its international network and activities by developing programs and trainings at Fuji Sanctuary, enabling more people to learn its philosophy of life and dedicate themselves to awakening their own inner spiritual life in the process of realizing peace on Earth.
