The Gandhi, King, Ikeda Community Builders Prize

Peace is often characterized as a state of tranquility– a utopia free from conflict. The lives of Gandhi, King and Ikeda clearly demonstrate that rather than quiet stillness, peace is a product of vital and energetic life-activity altruistically aimed at “the good of all” – the community. Their endeavors further reveal that lasting results are born only when social movements are carried out by individuals who are embodying an internal, spiritual reformation.

The Gandhi, King, Ikeda Community Builders prize symbolizes the tradition these giants of humanity share and, it is hoped, will inspire and empower every person to take responsibility for the improvement of the human condition.
