Work continued on the Peace Pole over the past retreat, scheduled to be delivered tomorrrow to the Hanapepe Matsunaga Peace Garden. After the hexagonal pole was roughed in with the chain saw and power planer, next it was finished off with Japanese planes. One of the placques is placed for position.
The top of the pole is pointed so that no birds will sit there.
Next, we routed in recesses for each of the six placques.
Test fit with the Japanese version of “May Peace Prevail On Earth.”
Next we use glue with epoxy to fasten them to the pole.
After oiling and making a simple stand the pole sits in front of Kadavul absorbing the shakti of Kadavul before going out to the community.
Underneath the Japanese there is a stainless steel plaque with Braille and a notice “Sponsored by the Interfaith Roundtable of Kauai” where the plan to create and put these poles into the community was born and nurtured.
The deepest perception of Love: Love is the ultimate Truth. Our Affirmation of Faith: "God Siva is Immanent Love and Transcendent Reality." You are also that Love, you are also God Siva. There's only one Being and that Being is a being of Love. The more we can act from that part of us, the better.
