The Ring for Peace Ceremony

A Multi-­religious Symbol of Peace

the connecting Element

The Ring for Peace sheds light on the guiding theme of the 10th World Assembly and is introduced as a permanent symbol of peace between the religions. The ring stands as a connecting element, which is not fixed to one religion or excludes another. In many world religions, the ring symbolizes loyalty, truthfulness and honesty. The Buddhist Wheel of Life, the signet ring of the Prophet Mohammed in Islam, the Ring of Solomon in Judaism or Lessing’s Ring Parable, are only a few examples.

As a “round whole”, equal and absolute in itself, the ring symbolizes the complementary and mutually completing nature of world religions, whose unity embodies the entirety of the consciousness.

The Design

The Templin wood designer Gisbert Baarmann will build the 7.5 meter high wooden ring in the form of a Moebius strip. The ring will be built from larch wood; 36 woods from all over the world and from certified cultivation will be integrated into the large sculpture. The sculpture will be erected in early August in the Lindau Luitpoldpark, directly on the shores of Lake Constance.

The ring will remain there permanently and will continue to provide a venue for multi-religious ceremonies and meetings in Lindau.
