Peace Poles: Why are they so important to the world?

Ken Lambert is our Peace Correspondent in India

In a world where mayhem and chaos are ever-existent, so is peace and hope. Today, the best way to support and promote peace is to opt for peace poles that carry the message “May Peace Prevail On Earth” in different languages depending on where you happen to live. Peace poles are internationally-recognized symbols that represent dreams and hope for the complete human population. Whether it is a garden peace pole or something planted in a place of significance, they stand vigil, saying the silent prayer that helps peace prevail on the earth.

Size and sides of Garden Peace Pole

In general, your garden peace pole can have four or more sides. The size can vary depending on your needs. If the peace pole is for personal use, one might not need a tall one. However, for the ones that represent a bigger population, the pole can go as big as required.

Now that you know the basics of peace poles, here is a quick trace back to the history.

History of Peace Poles

The story of peace poles started in the year 1916 with Masahisa Goi from Japan. The Hiroshima-Nagasaki attack signaled the world that we humans were off track, and chaos was prevailing. Peace and love were being taken over by rage and anger. It was confirmed that humanity wasn’t in harmony with the universe and its components.

Masahisa Goi promoted the prayer that was in the common interest of human beings. He also realized that the words expressed common human aspirations regardless of religion or nationality. So, if you have plans to get a garden peace pole for your home, you should definitely do so to keep things in line and allow peace to prevail.

Planting Your Garden Peace Pole

Planting your very own garden peace pole is a way to bring together people of varying culture, religion, as well as region to awaken, inspire, as well as uplift their conjoined consciousness. Let us tell you a quick story about Pandora’s Box that will help decode how hope helped establish peace in the world.

Known for her ever-increasing curiosity, Pandora was gifted a box with a key that was never to be opened. She was gifted this box by the Greek God Zeus. She was strictly instructed that the box should never be opened else; bad things might happen to the world. However, her curiosity grew stronger with each passing day, and finally, she opened up the box.

Soon enough, all the evil that was locked away in the box, such as jealousy, rage, anger, etc., were released into the world for the humans to deal with. People were all in chaos, and things started to get into turmoil. However, there was one last thing that came out of the box.

This one last thing was “Hope.” With the hope of helping the humans, peace prevailed and helped ease in the chaos. Although ancient mythology, hope, and peace are tied together, and peace poles represent the reign of peace over the evils of the world. So, if you have plans to get your very own garden peace pole, now is the time to do so.

But, how do you plant your garden peace pole?

Planting Process for Garden Peace Poles

With time being of the essence, everyone looks for things that are easy to work with. The garden peace poles by Peace-Pole require no use of cement for proper placement. Cement tends to take up a lot of time to dry and can be harder to remove in case you want your peace pole to be shifted from one spot to another.

With our peace poles, all you need is to dig a hot that is about 20 inches deep. To make the work easier, you can use a post-hole digger. Now, set this garden peace pole within this hole and fill the same back with the earth that was just dug out from the hole.

Depending on the common languages spoken by you and your community, the garden peace pole can be customized. Given the 9 feet height of the peace poles, you can add 8 peace messages on the 4 sides of the same. So, if you want your peace pole to list 8 different languages, it can easily be done. You can also customize the same to represent all the messages in a single language.

Why should you choose a weather-proof garden peace pole?

Regardless of the material used to construct your garden peace pole, it should completely be weather-proof to last through the years. One thing that is sure for your peace pole is that it should stand for years and spread out the message of peace and hope to the complete humanity. In general, there are three types of materials used for peace poles that include limestone, stainless steel, as well as granite.

How to get more languages on a 7-Sided Peace Pole

I was on Pinterest when I noticed someone had a photo of one of my 7-Sided Peace Poles, but with the wrong link. It took you to someone’s Pinterest page where it said, “..site also includes directions on making your own.” But there was no link to this site for the directions or to the image of the Garden Peace Pole. So I thought I should post this here so someone could find it with a search if they really wanted to.

7-Sided Peace Pole

Above is a 7-sided peace pole with the single word “Peace” etched into it many times, rather than the traditional phrase “May peace prevail on earth.” The one on Pinterest also was a departure. It had phrases, but some of them were like “Be the change.” If you want to see the one on Pinterest, it appears on a number of pages there. One of them is: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/514325219946360596/

Currently the peace poles with this many sides that I offer on this site are made of stone.

Blog – Peace Poles of Stone and Stainless

Why not set peace poles in cement?

A tree near my front door finally grew too large and was crowding a copper peace pole I had put near my front door seventeen or eighteen years ago. There still is room for the stainless peace pole, but not the copper one. I took it out and carried it across the lawn and leaned it on a tree. Now I can see it out my window as I type this. I rather like it leaning on the tree where I can see it. I wonder how long I can get away with leaving it there. Passersby probably would regard it as an unfinished project needing attention.

Pre-spring, no leaves on the tree the copper peace pole temporarily leans on.

There still is a stainless peace pole closer to my front door right in front of my kitchen window where I see it everyday. One by one fewer and fewer have remained around my front door over the years as landscaping matured or was altered leaving less room for them. Five different ones was excessive anyway. Now that I’m looking at it where it is I would like to put this copper one closer to being in front of the office window I’m looking out of now as I type this.

But first I think I’d like to take it to my art studio downtown and let it be seen there for a while. Normally, when there is a peace pole there for anyone to see, it is one I just finished making and am getting ready to ship, if the deadline for it is not too close. At the moment no one is going to art studios anyway though, not even me. The Covid-19 plague has most of us self-quarantining. Where the copper peace pole is now will be in the way of lawn mowing when it becomes time for that. I guess I’ll leave it where it is until that becomes the issue.

Copper Peace Poles

The title of this post is peace poles of stone and stainless and here I am talking about a copper one. Why I don’t make these anymore is covered at Copper Peace Poles.

Patina

The blueness of the patina is temporary. This photo was from when it was brand new. A little age will temper it to greens and darker shades with streaks of blue like the copper peace pole higher on this page and another one on this site at this link.

Forever

I like making things that last forever anyway. Consider your having a peace pole that lasted longer than stone henge or the sphinx. Peace poles of stone and stainless will. I like that.
