Towards a “A Way of Living for Humans” surpassing all the religious boundaries

The recovery is in progress and we would like to invite people who are forced to live in temporary housing or people who still require mental health-care intervention in suffered areas. We will be more than willing and grateful to provide “emotional support” and “zest for living” for as many people as possible through prayers with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and the Shinto practitioners in Japan.
