A bell for peace and friendship

Some information about the project:

The idea came up at the traditional meeting at the Cossack Cemetry in Lienz 2005, when cossacks from all over the world remember the tragedy from 1945.

25.000 man, women and children came as refugees with horses and wagons to Lienz and were send back to Sibiria by the British army in June 1945.

Most of them died there and this sad history should be an impuls for a much better future for the planet.

So a group of people worked together to plan and finance a place to pray, meet and talk about peace and friendship on top of a mountain near Lienz / Tyrol.

It took 11 years to realize the plan, but now we are very happy to invite all of you to the
„Bell for peace and friendship“  on the Hochstein


with subtitles in English, how the tower was build.

The bell was made in Innsbruck by GRASSMAYR  while people from different religions prayed for it. It shows the symbols of 12 religions and the words
„I ring for peace and friendship“.

The tower is made with stones from more than 100 countries of the world and from holy places like Mekka, Haiffa, Assisi, Stonehenge, Ganges, Lhasa and more.

People can light a candle and ring the bell.  Here you can ring it on your own with a short video.

And please join the intention, that there should be
„Heaven on earth for every living beeing on the planet!“

The team who runs the project is a regional Cooperation Circle of the worldwide
United Religions Initiative URI
