    Fire and Water Paid Member

    On a warm day in early March, several hundred people gathered at the Laikipia Nature Conservancy in central Kenya to attend the fire and water ceremony held by the Japanese lay Buddhist order Shinnyo-en, and led by the head of Shinnyo-en, Her Holiness Shinso Ito (pictured above). Every year, Shinnyo-en conducts several fire and water ceremonies around the world.
