12seconds for Peace is very happy to have received a third video from Jonathan Coote and one that completes his trilogy of videos - the very first 12seconds for Peace trilogy!
In this video, as Jonathan has noted, we see him engaging in the Tibetan Buddhist custom of prostration whilst praying and also blessing ‘the three jewels’ - these being; the Buddha, the Dharma (the teachings of the Buddha), and the Sangha (the community of followers of the Buddhist teachings). The fact that Jonathan is engaging in prayers and blessings in front of a tank also offers a powerful message about the actions that are needed to achieve peace, rather than just prayers and hopes.
Jonathan had this to say:
“…this videos demonstrates the cost of peace and asks the question what price are you willing to pay to see peace a reality?”
