Calligraphy of "The Bell of Nine Mountains and Eight Seas" gifted to Mike Mansfield in 1980 by The Peoples of the World Association.


1. Great Mankind, become a Phoenix.

2. Great Mankind, do not fear the vulture, Ideology has become eroded by time.

3. God, grant human rights to man and civil rights to Great Mankind.

4. This Earth is mankind's fatherland, the homeland is a nation's fatherland.

5. Mankind must not be destroyed before the Earth is destroyed.

6. Only those who maintain graves shall have ancestors, only those who maintain their native land shall have a fatherland.

7. Listen to the teachings of God. All nations must abandon their weapons simultaneously.

8. There are no difference dimensions in belief, Life and death are orders of God.

9. Great Mankind, do not let the light of freedom go out, Great Mankind, your name is the Lord of All Creation.
