HWPL News: Interfaith Leaders of Nepal highlighted on peace
Religious leaders of Nepal highlighted on peace
The first meeting for world peace at the HWPL World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Office-hosted by Heavenly Culture World Peace Restoration of Light (HWPL) held in Kathmandu .
With the topic “The Peace Spoken of in Each Religious Scripture,” religious leaders from Hinduism, Islam, Baha’i, Protestantism, Catholicism, Buddhism, and many others discussed and shared their opinions.
Man Hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL who hosted the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Summit (WARP Summit) last September, has been traveling across many parts of the world to bring cessation of war and to establish harmony between religions for this very purpose.
Chintamani Yogi, the founding principal and the coordinator of the Hindu VidyaPeeth School in Nepal, took part in Nepal’s World Alliance of religions’ Peace Office along with many other influential leaders including Dharma Raj Pathak, FAYA Youth Organization leader, who had attended the WARP Summit hosted by HWPL last year.
Yogi said, “Although the teaching from each religion may differ from another, every person of religion carries a responsibility to seek for peace and to actualize it.”
He also warned the current global situation by saying, “Conflicts and distress arise from the religious leaders who are selfish and materialistic, resulting in separation between peace and religion. To pass down a world of such conflicts is very embarrassing and heartbreaking.”
He continued by saying that he was able to taste the hope of meeting a true generation of peace by seeing HWPL’s peace movement and its suggesting method of resolution.
The leader of JCYCN (Jagriti Child and Youth Concern Nepal), TilottamPaudel, who gave a presentation on his attendance in the WARP Summit, emphasized various roles of youth for peace by saying,
“In order to actualize true peace on earth, a country should first protect its youth, and second, the youth who are an important force in the country must be active in reflecting the mindset of peace in all fields including religion, politics, and culture.”
