Pomp And Circumstance

Last Night of the PromsI’ve been watching the Last Night of the Proms since I was a little lad, and it’s a wonderful and enduring spectacle. With the people watching around the world I imagine the audience must run into the tens of millions. Of course it’s a very British event, but seeing so many people united, by the pure joy of the evening, lifts the heart.

How wonderful the world would be if we could unite people in love, compassion and respect for each other. That is the aim of Kosen-Rufu, to transform the political and religious differences into a mutual love and respect for all living beings.

If it can be done on a small scale by the Henry Wood Promenade concerts, surely there is hope that it can be done on a world-wide basis.
