If there was ever a perfect time for this book to Be, it is now. We need the beauty of its pages to nourish us in manifesting a peace that already is. We need this book to help heal the wounds of rigid dogmatic ideas about three great faiths with a deep and common root in the Middle East. May the one illuminating peace help us all.

This is a book of exquisite beauty and profound meaning. The illuminated images bring greater vision to the illuminating words filling the reader's heart with beauty and a recognition of the Divine.

Alanas illustrations of Neils translations do exactly, in my opinion, what is needed to ground peace in communities in in conflict.

International Day of Peace - Unity Flags & Banners
In honor of the 100th Anniversary of Gandhi's first Non-violent Action, the 25th Anniversary of the United Nations International Day of Peace, the Affirm UnityPeace Art exhibit began a global journey as a display of prayer flags representing the field of Unity underlying all spiritual paths, that ultimately leads to the experience of Peace.

In 2005 Peace Through Artlaid the groundwork for this exhibit by creating a series of fine art linen banners for the Peace Alliance Conference at the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C., that have since been traveling a circuit of Peace events. These banners were also displayed during the televised conversation between Congressman Kucinich and Walter Cronkite at Reagan Center, Washington, D.C., as well as the Imagine Peace Festival in Amenia, New York; the Rachel Corrie Foundation Peaceworks Conference in Olympia, Washington; a Holly Near Peace Concert and the Spiritual Activism Conference in Seattle, Washington; the second People's Summit for Departments of Peace in Victoria and the World Peace Forum in Vancouver, British Columbia.
