Gandhi, King, Ikeda Community Builders Prize
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.
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.
