Giving Light to People Near Regional Headquarters
On Labor Day, Monday September 7, 2009, the Los Angeles center of Sukyo Mahikari hosted a booth at the 5th Annual "Healthy Community Expo and 5K Fun Run/Walk." The event was held in the city of Rancho Santa Margarita, only two miles from Regional Headquarters and the Los Angeles center. The event went from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and featured a number of health and fitness exhibitors. According to city estimates, more than 3,000 people visited the Expo this year.

For us, this was the second time that Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development has hosted a booth at this annual event. Last year, members from the Los Angeles, Torrance, and Pasadena centers attended and handed out flyers, with the purpose of introducing the organization to the community. At this year's event, having become more known in the community, we went an additional step further and members offered Light at the booth to interested visitors.
Approximately 20 members from the Los Angeles, Torrance, and Phoenix centers volunteered their time by getting up as early as 5 a.m. to set up the booth, hand out brochures, and give Light. Because the event centered on health and fitness issues, we focused on giving Light to "special points." Most of the members who came dedicated their time to giving Light, while other members stood next to the booth to explain the purpose and practices of Sukyo Mahikari and to hand out brochures.

As many as 75 visitors received Light at our booth that day! The event was seen as a great success and we plan to do it again next year.
