GCSC-2 Update (4FEB99):


Conducting the opening prayer and message for the confernce (GCSC-2), in cooperation with indigenous spiritual practitioners, will be the initiator of the Global Peace Walk, Rev. Dr. Yusen Yamato, who studied in Japan, graduated from traditional schools as a Buddhist Monk and Zen Shatsu Meditation Practitioner, roughly equivalent to a minister and doctor of eastern medicine and philosophy in our culture. He has a special blessing from His Holiness Dalai Lama for the Global Peace Walk which carries His Holiness' message for peace along with those of many supporters including indigenous American cultural and spiritual leaders and spokes -people. Rev. Yamato understands of His Holiness' interest in the new scientific studies of the vacuum energy field as they relate to the teaching of "the void", or "emptiness", thought in Eastern philosophies be the root of our physical reality. Rev. Yamato is carrying the Message of the Symbol of Peace, as embodied in the Stupa and Peace Pole Monuments of ancient India, which brought about an end to war inaugurating a 500 year period without crime or violence in the area. Rev. Yamato will be in Japan for about two weeks before 26FEB99 on a Peace Messenger Mission to further the Global Peace Zone Sister City relationship between San Francisco and Osaka. He regrets that in spite of the Peace Constitution adopted by Japan after the end of World War II, under the auspices of Japan's "Self Defense Force", the United States has imposed on it the financial responsibility of maintaining that military force, now greater than that before World War II, and has created over 60 nuclear power plants in Japan, including a large plutonium recycling plant, on his very earthquake active homeland.
