Seed of Peace Grows in the Hearts of Religious Leaders and Youths in London:
The Second Dialogue of Scriptures hosted by HWPL
Phramaha Bhatsakorn Piyobhaso commented, “We can work together successfully and my hope is that all religions can be used to bring us together to unify the people.” This message echoed in the hearts of the religious leaders in the UK to work together in the name of peace as they continue to spread a positive message within their communities.
In the evening, the participants watched the highlights of the successful Africa World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit, hosted by HWPL and its affiliates International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) and International Peace Youth Group (IPYG), on 30-31 March 2015 at the University of South Africa, Pretoria.
The summit called for the unity and action to ensure interfaith harmony and the lasting legacy of peace for the future generations. The Africa WARP Summit and the Dialogue of Scriptures are a continuation of the success of the WARP Summit held in South Korea on 17-19 September 2014. At the summit last year, two noteworthy agreements were signed by more than 2,000 global leaders at one sitting: “The Agreement to propose the Enactment of an International Law for the Cessation of War” and “The Agreement for the Alliance of Religions” to bring about inter-faith harmony.
With a definitive answer to why there are constant conflicts and wars that threaten peace, why we need a world without war, and how we can create a world of peace, the Chairpersons of HWPL and its affiliates are actively working to make world peace a reality by facilitating inter-religious dialogues, and gathering governmental and judiciary officials to enact an international law for the cessation of all wars.
