For many years I have been convinced "The World is One,The Spirit of Humanity is One." I have made it my life mission to bring this truth to fruition. I have visited 168 countries and met with people of every culture,creed and ideology. In these meetings I have found confirmation that people everywhere share the same aspirations; that humanity has the ability and will to reclaim our common spiritual heritage; and that when we do so, we can indeed achieve the age-old dream of world unity.
 Today we live an era of economic warfare. As a Japanese, I feel very strongly that we must overcome the communications gap and work to eliminate both trade friction and the cultural friction which underlines it, as individuals no less than from corporate and national standpoints. In fulfilling this moral obligation, we can also play an important role in bringing the entire world together.
 The International Affairs Institute for World Peace has office in Tokyo. This serves as base to keep abreast of developments in all parts of the world. The human contacts that result are strengthened through lectures, books and articles, television appearances, international seminars and symposia. Another important part of the Institute's work is to function as a consultant to countries and corporations. Many world leaders are enthusiastic participants in this program.
 I believe that, if we are to survive, the world must learn to transcend differences of race, religion and politics. It is a momentous task, because it is one we must all work together for as individuals. We can only create Utopia on this Earth by each one of us retracing our spiritual roots and rediscovering the rich treasure of humanity within us.
 For myself, I believe there is no worthier or more pressing goal. That is the reason I established "Taiyo no Kai" (Following the Sun Association), and will continue to strive for world peace and unity.


It may be that all people actually have the same desires.
They want a happy and spiritually rich life;
they harbor a fervent hope for a peaceful society.....
Furthermore, doesn't a "gentle heart"
that loves all living things dwell deep within any person?
That light, like the sun, which constantly pours the strength
to live in all things,shines brightly upon darkness,
pours warm breath into frozen hearts,
melts the hard walls that create estrangement
and has the strength to bring people together as one.
It surely must shine quietly within you as well.
Please first let that sun rise from you.
For the sake of your enrichment and happiness,
to shine upon the people around you and the environment,
and to fill the world with warmth.....

Now is the time to take flight toward a new age

We will soon be welcoming the dawn of a new age. The various values we have long believed in and the social mechanisms we had depended upon as a matter of course are breaking down one after another now. This is one indication that the world is changing greatly.

The path of humanity is shifting greatly away from a society that had heretofore been controlled by financial and political power, toward a society in which the spirit of peace and benevolence has taken root. To me this kind of age can be summarized as one whose motto is "shifting from the path of power, to the path of life." The 21st century should be an age in which everyone recaptures the radiance of their hearts and lives experiencing happiness personally.

Through visiting countries around the world as an international political commentator and talking to many leaders directly, I have come to realize that, in spite of the differences in their circumstances and positions, in their heart of hearts all people share the hope for peace.

True world peace is not something created by the ruler or president of one country. It will be realized for the first time when the hope for peace lives in the heart of every one of us living on earth.

I formed "Taiyo no Kai" (Following the Sun Association) to strive for the revival of the human being, so that we can welcome a 21st century in which all people will live spiritually rich lives. I chose this name because of my heartfelt wish that with a "gentle heart" that is harmonious like the sun everyone will rise to work together toward achieving world peace.

It is sure to be a tremendous force if every one of us becomes an angel of light, and together we pray for peace and send a message filled with love to all corners of the world. Let us please spread the circle of light together and shine upon the whole world with a gentle heart.
