What is a peace pole?

A Peace Pole is a hand-crafted monument that displays the message and prayer May Peace Prevail on Earth on each of its four or six sides, usually in different languages.

 
There are over 200,000  Peace Poles in 180 countries all over the world dedicated as monuments to peace. They serve as constant reminders for us to visualize and pray for world peace.

Seaside's peace pole was planted and dedicated in January of 2017 in celebration of the Season for Non Violence.

 

The annual 64 day campaign, co-founded in 1988 by Dr. Arun Gandhi and the Association for Global New Thought (AGNT) is an awareness campaign spanning the January 30th and April 4th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It focuses on the philosophy of attaining peace through non-violent action as demonstrated by Mohandas K. Gandhi, Rev. martin Luther King, Jr. and others. 

Peace begins in the heart

Peace beings in the heart and mind of each individual. As unrest begins with thoughts of unrest, peace begins with thoughts of peace. The Peace Pole reminds us to keep peace ever-present in our thoughts. As we learn to honor one another, our environment, plants, animals and all creation on Earth, the vision of global peace will gradually become a natural way of life. We are the ones to create a true culture of Peace.
