Here are more photos from the 2014 Lantern Floating Hawaii ceremony.  The top shot was taken after community leaders lit the “Light of Harmony”. This symbolizes their commitment to creating harmony and diversity in life. The flame also is used to light six large Parent lanterns that carry prayers for all spirits on behalf of the world. Prayers are offered for victimes of war, water-relation accidents, natural and manmade disasters, famine and disease. Collective remembrance lanterns are also launched which contain messages received ahead of time from around the world. Over 7,000 individual lanterns are launched into the water by the general public. Lanterns are distributed free on the event day (while supplies last).
