Gandhi King Ikeda Peace Builders Exhibition
Monday 12 November
Gandhi Hall, Brunswick Rd, Manchester, M20 4QB
SGI-UK are delighted to have the opportunity to show the Gandhi King Ikeda Peacebuilders Exhibition at Gandhi Hall.
The inspiration behind the exhibition was the founding of the Gandhi King Ikeda Community Builder’s Prize in 2001 by the Martin Luther King Jr International Chapel and the Gandhi Centre for Reconciliation at Morehouse College, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
Since 2004 the exhibition has been shown at over 100 locations worldwide.
The purpose of the exhibition is to highlight the examples of 3 people – Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr and Daisaku Ikeda (President of the lay Buddhist organisation, Soka Gakkai International, a worldwide society for the creation of value founded upon the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin) each of whom, based on the principles of their own faith traditions, has significantly advanced the cause of peace and of establishing human dignity.
Through the lives of these individuals, the exhibition shows the great potential that each human being has to create positive change.
The exhibition is about communicating a message of hope and how ordinary people can make a real difference and help to create a peaceful world.
