1000 Cranes – RKVC and the spiritual inspiration of “heavenly crane”.
So lets talk about the bird of happiness and the 1000 cranes. The “heavenly crane”, the Japanese red crowned crane is the most majestic in its 15 spices around the world. Also known as conceivably the oldest bird on earth has its legends and stories. Why the bird of happiness? The dance of cranes? The powerful wings of the crane were believed to be able to convey souls up to paradise and to carry people to higher levels of spiritual enlightenment.
The Greek and Roman myth tended to portray the dance of cranes as a love of joy and a celebration of life. The bird of happiness carries a few more names like “the heavenly Crane” referred to by the chinese as a symbol of wisdom. 1000 cranes…..1000 cranes! It is said that a thousand folded cranes, one for each year of its life, makes a wish come true. Sadako Sasaki and her unforgettable story of perseverance. Diagnosed with leukemia after being exposed to radiation after the bombing of Hiroshima, Sadako became determined to fold 1000 cranes in hopes of recovering good health, happiness, and a world of eternal peace. Although she completed 644 before she died, her classmates folded the remaining 356 to honor her. A statue was raised in the Hiroshima Peace Park to commemorate her strong spirit.
This spiritual enlightenment makes 1000 cranes worth the spiritual guidance you gain for storys like Sadako Sasaki. 1000 cranes are offered at shrines with prayer, based on the belief that the effort to fold a large number will be surely rewarded. Today this practice of folding 1000 cranes represents healing and hope during challenging times.RKVC
