Messages from Representative IAPG

In Japan, the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred in March 2011, and the Kumamoto Earthquake in April 2016, we experienced extensive damage. At that time, people in all over the world sent us a lot of support, warmhearted messages and prayers from the heart. Many people from all over the world have been extending their helping hands of love to the victims of the earthquakes, even though their nationalities and human races are different from Japan, or even there are some issues among the nations, regardless of such differences. Also such natural disasters are occurring in all over the world as well. And we can see the same actions as well. Looking at such situation of helping each other over the differences of nations, human races and disciplines, many people in the world have been moved. It might be showing that people might be able to return to the original figures we should have as human beings, just in the time of crisis. Ahead of this situation expanding to the world, we suppose that we will recognize the stupidity of national conflicts and we will stop fighting each other, overcoming the every possible differences such as religions and so on.

However on the other hand, world-widely under the name of God, under the name of a religion, stupid fights killing each other using the name of God are being going on. Catholic Pope Francis mentions, "The ways of all of the faith are the respective road leading toward the one God", and he is now working for promoting peace in the world beyond the frame of religion. Also I hear the Koran of Islam preaches the same teaching. IAPG founder, Noriko Inamori was always talking about a question, "Jesus, Muhammad, and Buddha started preaching the road of God, wishing the happiness of the people. Then why is such a war under the name of God occurring?"

In August 2013, the founder Noriko Inamori returned to heaven. Just a week before, she wrote a letter to Pope Francis with the help of group members. Unfortunately right after that, she passed away and could not hand it over to Pope. However in two weeks after, we went to the Vatican and could pass the letter to Pope. Her letter said, "On behalf of Mother Mary, could you please call world religious leaders to shake hands each other?" Inheriting the will of Noriko Inamori, we would like to keep on this activity step by step, believing that people in the world notice themselves being the existence of the original love, so that these stupid conflicts must be ceased. We would like to pray for turning today's relationship with you into big light someday!
