Following the example of nature, where everything develops from a small way or a small model, Mokiti Okada (1882-1955), also known as Meishu-Sama, started in 1945 in Japan to build prototypes of the Terrestrial Paradise, which called Sacred Solos. These sites are characterized by harmony between natural beauty and man-made. The goal of Meishu-Sama (which in Portuguese means “Lord of Light”) was left to mankind the basis for the construction of an Ideal World, embodied in truth, in goodness, and in beauty. He established the towns of Hakone, Atami and Kyoto, aiming that from them, other models could be built around the world, like a pebble that plays in the center of a lake and is forming circles of small waves to reach the margins.
In Brazil, the prototype of paradise was built on the margin of Guarapiranga reservoir in São Paulo, an area of 327,500 square meters and is known as Sacred Ground Guarapiranga. Today, he is considered one of the largest spaces for contemplation of nature and meditation existing in Brazil.
Harmonizing the beauty of the West with the East, its construction began in 1991, after an elaborate design, where every detail has been designed to give people a place where they could meditate and get in tune with nature, bringing their spirituality . For this, thousands of volunteers from all over Brazil and also from other countries took turns in task forces and contributed, imbuing the place with your love, gratitude and sincerity
Already at the entrance, you feel a wonderful energy: on one hand, the immensity of Guarapiranga reservoir; the other, the green in its many shades.
Then, flowering lanes and different types of stones placed in different positions. Everything done so that people can really feel that paradise can be built.
Currently, the holy ground has been used by various public, private and religious institutions, which hold events and ceremonies, taking advantage of the modern facilities and resources, as well as the wonderful atmosphere of the place, which makes quite enjoyable activities.
“A civilization in which disease, poverty and conflict no longer exist will be a paradise on earth.”
