SUNHAK Peace Prize Founder Introduction

SUNHAK Peace Prize Founder Introduction


Hello.  This blog is about the SUNHAK Peace Prize, the ‘prize for all peace loving global citizens.’
In this posting, we'd like to introduce to you the founder who created the SUNHAK Peace Prize.

In his autobiography, the founder explains, "I am a controversial person.  The mere mention of my name causes trouble in the world.  I never sought money or fame but have spent my life speaking only of peace.  The world, though has associated many different phrases with my name, rejected me, and thrown stones at me.  Many are not interested in knowing what I say or what I do.  They only oppose me."

Would you be curious as to who the founder of the SUNHAK Peace Prize might be?  Well, now we'll let you know.



Rev. Sun Myung Moon (1920~2012, born in Jeong-ju, North Pyeong-an Province)
Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon (1943~Present, born in An-ju, South Pyeong-an Province)












“I have dedicated my entire life to creating a world of peace. Peace means to connect people of different ways of thinking, different races, and different languages. When I ate food, I ate for the sake of world peace; and when I drank water, I drank for the sake of world peace. At times, steep mountains and large oceans blocked my way, but I kept running holding high the banner of peace – up steep mountains and across the seas, with no regard for day or night. It has not been easy to live for the sake of peace, but this was the only thing that could bring me happiness.”

Rev. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, the True Parents, True Teachers and True Owners, lived their lives for the realization of 'world peace through ideal families.'  They toured the world, transcending nationality, race, religion and culture, proclaimed 'one global family' as their vision of peace, and centering on religion, made great efforts to realize peace through various fields such as politics, economy, education, media, arts, family, women’s rights and youth, etc.
