Last weekend, the Tricycle team was pleased to attend the Shinnyo-en Lantern Floating for Peace ceremony in New York City’s Central Park. Led by Her Holiness Shinso Ito, the weekend-long event attracted thousands of visitors and honored the public and personal peacemakers in our lives. In this exclusive interview, Her Holiness speaks with Tricycle about her traditional Shingon (Japanese Vajrayana) Buddhist training, the thrust of Shinnyo-en’s teachings, and the importance of continuing these international ceremonies for peace.
