In conjunction with Cheongpyeong Asia Tour, Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU) Malaysia organized a two-day HyoJeong Cheongpyeong Malaysia Special Event by the theme ‘Purify Mind, Body & Soul’ on 2-3 June 2018 at Kuala Lumpur. With the goal that Cheongpyeong should be for all mankind and not only for unificationists, Malaysian members tried to think out of the box and find ways to make Cheongpyeong universal.
Finally, the hard work of members paid off. Among the 900 participants, more than 300 were new guests (non-members). They consist of friends and family of our blessed families, various religious groups and organizations. They joined all the sessions including chanyang, lectures, wishpaper offering ceremony, ancestor liberation and blessing.
Malaysia is a multi-racial, multi-religious and multi-cultural country. So the event began with an interfaith invocation participated by religious leaders of the major religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism. This was followed by a graceful water-pouring ceremony by all leaders led by National Leader Rev Yutaka Yamada to symbolize the unity and harmony of all religions and to mark the beginning of the event.
The new guests enjoyed the chanyang sessions and were very touched and inspired by the lectures by Dr Yong, the Asia Pacific Group Chairman, titled ‘Earthly life and the Spirit World’. They realized the need to practise true love and even to love the enemy for the sake of eternal life.
Many of the participants experienced spiritual phenomena throughout the two-day workshop. One of the Ambassadors for Peace who is a devout Hindu testified that she felt True Father sitting on his chair on stage throughout the whole event. Several new guests also experienced immediate healing of their painful body parts and also recovery from depression after chanyang and ancestor liberation. They were really inspired and grateful for the grace received from True Parents. They even hope that the Cheongpyeong event can be held every month in Malaysia.
The Cheongpyeong Special Event in Malaysia was really a great, historical breakthrough as new guests were able to accept True Parents naturally and also follow all the traditions and ceremonies (eg. Kyongbae, prayer, cheers of Og Mansei) throughout the program. We realize that True Parents are and Cheongpyeong are really universal and can be accepted by all mankind – regardless of race and religion.
