“The skillful expressions of voice, melody and dance that issue forth from the all-encompassing humanity of the artist cultivate and lend fragrance to deep human emotions. They are a positive influence that leads to a heightening of human spirituality. The spirit of art and the spirit of peace are naturally bound together. Artists are the standard bearers for the creation of peace. I am convinced that art, as an expression of life itself, constitutes the highest form of value creation.”
— Daisaku Ikeda, Min-On Founder
