HWPL Chairman Man Hee Lee gave this motivational statement at the Press Conference for the 3rd Annual Commemoration of the Grand Intercontinental Hotel in Seoul.

Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL explained, North Korea has already done nuclear test 6 times now. In the midst of this current status, HWPL has continued its peace activities, transcending nationalities, ethnicities, and religions. The 3rd Annual commemorative event is being held and participated in nationwide, as well as in various places of the world, at this very moment. We have to cooperate together to participate in these peace initiatives to achieve the ultimate peace.”

The flurry of anticipation filled the conference room as reporters coming from different media agencies raised their hands to ask more questions to HWPL’s Chairman, Man Hee Lee. Also, the questions regarding peace education and the spreading a culture of peace initiatives were thrown to IWPG’s chairwoman Nam Hee Kim.
Around 117 journalists and 105 press agencies from 45 countries including those in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and others participated in the Q&A session. The primary question topics were regarding international law, peace education, women’s peace activities, spreading a culture of peace  initiatives, peace in the Korean peninsula, and religious conflict and peace.

Reporters showed great interest in HWPL’s activities especially those done for the progress of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War and its peace-spreading campaigns.

HWPL Chairman Man Hee Lee proclaimed, “All people yearn for peace, but until now, there was no sustainable method to achieve it since we still have an everyday environment where we are exposed to violence. The 10 Articles and 38 clauses of the DPCW is the method. Furthemore, peace education, as another method to achieve peace, is necessary for all students and citizens.”

Press Conference Q & A Session

hwpl,peace,press conference,3rd warp summit, question

Q) We hear a lot about terrorism and other violent activities occurring throughout the world. Through what methods can we let the world, especially religious groups, hear the voices of peace and respond to the culture of peace?
-Mourad Sellami, Dune Voices, Tunisia

“Religion, as the forerunner of the achievement of peace, must become the light that enlightens the global community. There are many conflicts due to religious misunderstandings. The World Alliance of Religions’ Peace, WARP Summit has been initiated due to this cause. What is the promise that we made at the first summit?

Political leaders will implement the law for peace; Religious leaders will become united in God; Organization leaders will practically implement these peace initiatives in the field. The Ultimate reason that religious misunderstandings arise and gaps are continuing to widen is because there is a misunderstanding in the comprehensive understanding of each religious scripture.

The WARP Offices are proving that when leaders of religious communities come together in accordance with the understanding of their religous scriptures, the true alliance of religous will be seen. This is now actively being practiced throughout the world.

Also, for the process of building cessation of war and world peace, the role of the international press is imperative.

The ability to make progress really relies on the efforts of the media to spread this news of peace.”

-Chairman of HWPL, Man Hee Lee

 

Q) What is the most important thing for women to do
to popularize the peace education curriculum globally?
-Juliana golloshi, Balkan Web, albania

“For the implementation of peace education, I think we need to know the contents of the education as well as its proponents.

In other words, the peace education carried out in this world is based on the mindset of chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL and his footsteps for peace. He is the living curriculum of peace education.

At the 2nd commemoration last year, during my speech, I mentioned a code of conduct to the global community. As the fourth point, I stated that peace education should be implemented throughout the world. Since then, peace education has been actively implemented at many schools and education has been actively implemented at many schools and educational institutions.

This education trains children and youth to learn and build their behavior, attitudes, and communication skills to solve conflicts and issues peacefully. HWPL’s Chairman, Man Hee Lee has established IWPG knowing that mothers are the proponents of peace found in the family and in the community. As one wing of HWPL, along with the heart of a mother IWPG supports the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War and urges leaders of various sectors of society to join in support as well because the document aims to protect children and women and their rights to enjoy peace.

Peace education has to be practiced from the family level all the way through elementary, middle, and high schools and even to universities. IGOs such as UN and UNESCO are to cooperate with HWPL so that the education will be embedded in our everyday lives in order to cease all conflicts.”

-Chairwoman of IWPG, Nam Hee Kim

Q) What outcomes can we anticipate from this event,
as the 3rd Annual Commemoration of the September 18th?
-Thiptawan Teeranaipong, Thai PBS, Thailand

 “All people of the world have to think of the purpose that HWPL pursues and how it is related to the world today. The means of hosting this 3rd Annual Commemorative event is to raise awareness of the issue of peace among many and awaken those people who are asleep in relation to peace.

The 3rd Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit is not only being held in Seoul but many parts of the world are now also participating. Throughout Korea, too, at this moment, people are lending their ears to this conference.

We have come together to cease all wars and establish peace, and also to urge the world to acknowledge the need for removing weapons of mass destruction.

With those weapons of destruction still in existence, can we really achieve peace in this world? For what purpose were they produced? Aren’t they for war and killing? When war occurs, who goes out to the front line to fight? Aren’t they our children? Do the governments and laws compensate for their sacrifices? In order to make a real compensation, shouldn’t they bring all the victims back to life?

Can we say that those are complete laws and policies? This globe, that is full of life, was given to men as their inheritance. Then, shouldn’t we protect and preserve it? All the politicians and professionals in the political field need to think of and perceive the achievement of peace differently. I also urge all journalists and press to play their role in spreading the messages of peace to all leaders and citizens transparently.”

-Chairman of HWPL, Man Hee Lee

 

Q) Is there a way to spread peace culture in the most effective way?
-Igor Shevyrov, Izvestia in Ukraine, Ukraine

 “Our purpose is to spread a culture of peace and we, with a passionate heart fo peace, have to become the realities of peace. I think that it should be conveyed with a sense of mission rather than just telling it unilaterally. To convey the news of this peace event, rather than other events, is the most valuable news that all humanity is looking forward to.

All press coming from different parts of the world have now listened to the answers of peace. So, I encourage you to deliver this news through various news platforms and SNS with responsibility. But remember that the proponents are the most important.

Our IWPG will continue to walk with HWPL and put forth every effort to leave the legacy of a world free of wars to future generation through advocating for the establishment of the law for peace and spreading a culture of peace through various women’s peace activities. To those who ar here, once again, I urge everyone to take part actively with the mindset of an owner to deliver the news of peace.”

-Chairwoman of IWPG, Nam Hee KIm

 

Those who gathered at this conference have the responsibility to be the eyes of the global community. Starting from this moment, the press cooperating with HWPL will report the reality of peace to not only their home countries but to all people.

If peace education is performed from childhood, our children won’t hold guns.
We need to educate our children that achieving world peace is extremely natural.

The people on the globe should be the messenger of world peace and work for cessation of war, world peace with the same mind and the same will enthusiastically.
We need to put our mind and will together in order to hand down new era, new world and new life to mankind.

Proclamation of the Declaration of World Peace

The Heavens and the Earth formed by the hands of the Creator have been given to humanity as an inheritance. In all the universe, life in its vast splendour exists only on our world. The life that grows on the earth is sustained from above – by light, by the rain, and by the air they provide unconditionally to all living beings. We have received the precious gift of life from above, let us give glory to heaven, and live in peace on earth. This is the truest teaching of heaven.

With this eternal gift – the grace and life we have received – are we entitled to fight, kill and destroy one another? We cannot claim to desire peace and continue to provoke one another, causing conflict for the sake of valuing our own national interests above those of others. This will only take the lives of the youth, wasting them in the futility of war. This is not a legacy we can leave to future generations.

Of what use is a young life, born in our day and age, if it is thrown away in this manner – thrown away without having had a chance to bloom? What price can compensate for the loss of a life? Do these young souls have another chance at life? As emissaries of World Peace; as people who are working towards the restoration of humanity through a new and heavenly culture, we declare the following:
We call on all youth to unite in an effort to stop wars and pursue the restoration of peace by agreeing not to fight one another. For World Peace to become a reality, this is the duty of all youth, everywhere.

The only way to stop the fighting and pointless, tragic deaths, is to stop fighting. Nobody can ask for anything greater than this, and know that your efforts – the efforts of the young people of the world today in pursuit of peace – will remain as a never fading light of life for all future generations.

Furthermore, we call on every person, every man, woman, and child in the world, to pick up the mantle of peace. In whatever way you can, we ask that you work to further the cause of world peace and restoration, making it a reality in your direct environments.

Lastly, we call on the media to report responsibly and promote a message of peace to the world.

World peace and restoration has begun at the same time this declaration is proclaimed.
Thank you.

DPCW & Peace Education in India

Planning for conducting peace education in India and wishing for peace with 50 educators and students

 

On January 12th, 2017, a peace seminar ‘Promptly Meeting the Needs of the Times: The Necessity for Peace Education and the Comparative study for a Practical Plan’ was co-hosted by Heavenly Culture World Peace Restoration of Light (HWPL) and Lakshmibai College, Delhi University. The seminar took place in Lakshmibai College, Delhi University for about 50 officers from education field and university students.

Participants understood the reality that wars are taking place over the world and how significant peace education is as the MC delivered the message of Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL during the seminar stating ‘All living beings on the earth could constantly prosper with light, rain and air unconditionally given to. People have received life, which is a precious gift, from them. Let us give glory to heaven and live on the world of peace.’

About 49 HWPL Peace Academies have been appointed in India. In order to cease war and achieve peace through the peace education of HWPL aiming to develop various lesson materials and foster instructors, more than 1,000 HWPL Peace Academies to be designated in the world. Since the peace education began for the first time, in Israel on December, 2015, currently, 126 leading educational institutions have been appointed as HWPL Peace Academies and have implemented peace education from 8 countries including India, Myanmar, Philippines, Georgia, Kosovo, and Israel.

Pratyush Vatsala, Principal from Lakshmibai College explained the necessity of peace education and how she began to participate in peace education as stating, ‘Peace is something close to my heart. As an educator, when I see that HWPL has been working for peace with sincerity, I decided to be part of HWPL’s peace education. Peace is essential value for existence of humanity. Through education, peace must be emphasized in India now, the era, which values of morality are undermined.’ Furthermore, she added the plan and expected effectiveness of peace education as saying ‘As faculties in university, we need to devote ourselves to achieving peace and gathering more number of students to join the peace work for their own future. Education transforms the thoughts and mindset. We can create a better world through peace education.

The object of peace education is to accomplish the Article 10 ‘Spread a culture of peace’ of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) proclaimed on March, 2016. Recognizing the imminent threats posed by conflicts and wars, prominent legal experts from various countries joined HWPL’s peace movement with a determination to produce a new legal document and drafted DPCW. HWPL has designated HWPL Peace Academies and conducted peace education with an understanding that even though a condition is formed where peace can settle as the international law is implemented, however, true peace will not be achieved until the true seed of peace is sown into each one’s hearts.

HWPL will conduct pilot peace education in March based on today’s seminar and continue to operate diverse peace events such as implementing Peace Education, signing for supporting DPCW, Peace Walks, peace conference for youth and women. The pilot classes for peace education will be implemented on March in India. Recruiting people who are working for peace in Kashmir will be followed to conduct peace initiatives of HWPL to promote DPCW and form peace education committee of India with officers from education field.

Meanwhile, on the same day, on 12th, a signing ceremony for supporting Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) was held in National Youth Day: Drawing Competition of Vishwa Yuvak Kendra where 200 people participated in and signed for DPCW. DPCW will be presented to the UN to be transformed into legally binding document.

<Assistant Manager, Business Department of Fiji One TV/ Epeli Vakatawa/ Fiji>

 For me, the HWPL movement is something I felt in my heart, it’s not something that I only think about. The HWPL movement has a very strong message, and when you compare that to most peace movements, where you hear about people talking about it, signing agreements, but then you don’t see any evidence of practical work being done on the ground. That is why I am very glad to be involved with HWPL because they are actually on the ground.

 

Epeli Vakatawa, I’d like to extend my hearty welcome to your being involved with HWPL
Through legislation of international peace law of HWPL and the world alliance of religions, we can achieve world peace. And, this is the only answer and the key to World Peace~!!!

HWPL promotes the worldwide network to strengthen individual, organization, and government action to leave and realize the legacy of peace. Your participation and interest will be a tremendous importance in making this world a better place to live. Join us to start making a difference.

JOHOR BARU: Encouraging youths to embrace peace and spread the message of love should be emphasised to ensure a harmonious nation, said former Johor deputy police chief Datuk Aishah Mohamad.

In view of the fact that 35% of criminals in the country involved those below 25 years, she said that it was only right to engage the youths and encourage them to be advocates of peace.

“We have to begin by creating awareness on the importance of maintaining peace, especially among youths who are the future of the nation,” she said in a speech during the Peace Blossom in Johor forum here on Saturday.

Aishah said that spreading and upholding peace among the people could also contribute to securing public safety and bringing down crime rates in the country.
Recalling her 46 years of service in the force, Aishah said that she began her career under the Perak police contingent during the communist era in 1975, when Malaysians movements were restricted and curfews imposed.

“We have to keep our history in mind and remember our journey with many lives lost in a battle to achieve peace in this country and that this should not be taken for granted,” she added.

The peace forum, organised by International Women’s Peace Group, was the first of its kind in the state, which saw support from local non-governmental organisations including Johor Women’s League and the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation.

IWPG Malaysia representative Sarah Gun said that the forum aimed to promote peace in the country and the world.

The Korean-born said that she grew up in Singapore, in a society where race was the biggest issue growing up.

“I used to be pessimistic about world peace because the only time one would usually hear the word “world peace” was from the lips of Miss World or Miss Universe.

“Singapore is a rather peaceful country but when I went out to the bigger world, I realised that there were many other issues and it did not seem to be a peaceful world,” she said.

Gun believes that world peace could be attained if everyone stood united, but peace itself has to begin from within a person.

“We want to make world peace a possibility and this is why we are going to the grassroots to promote peace and unity,” he said.

The HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee (full name: the HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee for the Implementation of the International Law on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace, hereinafter the Committee) is rapidly growing globally since its first launching ceremony on March 15.

The Committee is attracting growing attention and support from a wide spectrum of peace lovers transcending nationality, skin color, and faiths. Its members launch regional Committees as peace-building efforts that surpass domestic levels and work to build a legacy of peace for generations to come by urging governments for the implementation of the International Law on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace.

Reflecting this rapid growth, the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) launched the HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee in Cape Town, South Africa on April 15 and in Skopje, Macedonia on April 26 respectively.

The newly established Committees in respective regions pledged to operate in ways that meet the needs of the local regions, and shared opinions and plans for future programs and operations.

Can a law stop wars? 500,000 signatures collected for the Legislate Peace Campaign

peacewalkEver since the 14th of March, when The Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War was proclaimed, in New Delhi, Hyderabad, and Mumbai, the Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) Peace Advocacy Committees had their opening ceremonies to actively urge for the implementation of an enforceable international law to bring a full stop to all conflicts. Also at Mumbai metropolitan majistrate court, Samsara school, Great Valley School, Modern School Noida, Mand Kaushalya Global the Complete School were gathered over 10,000 supportive signatures with the participation of a number of organizations.

On 25th May, 300,000 people gathered simultaneously in hundreds of cities including Seoul, New York City, Sydney, and Shanghai for the 3rd Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace: Legislate Peace Campaign hosted by HWPL in their respective time zones.

Filled with vibrant people yearning for peace, the event at the World Peace Gate in Seoul Olympic Park especially captured the eyes of many. This year’s commemoration highlighted the global peace advocacy movement, Legislate Peace Campaign, recently launched to bring all wars to an end by establishing an enforceable law compatible with the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).

The DPCW is unique in that it includes provisions aimed at resolving conflicts, reducing war potential, repurposing weapons to benefit humanity and inviting all citizens to participate in the active promotion of a lasting culture of peace.

The Legislate Peace Campaign calls on global citizens to unite as one to voice their positive demand for peace by adding their signatures. According to HWPL, as of May 25th, the collected signatures have exceeded 500,000 from 154 countries in less than two months and many heads of state have written official letters of support for the DPCW. The number of signatures is expected to reach 2,000,000 by the end of this year.

“Today, marking the 3rd anniversary, at this very moment, our family of peace must be having their eyes and ears in this place…What we are ought to leave to our future generations is the common good of mankind, peace. There is no greater legacy than peace and it is not achieved by one person. Therefore, we all must become messengers of peace,” said Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL in his commemorative address.

Since the proclamation of the Declaration of World Peace on 25th May 2013, HWPL has proposed its international law initiative to draft a legally binding instrument for all States to adopt that ultimately promotes a culture of peace and ceases all wars through the DPCW. A Korean youth leader said at an interview, “The organization has already made great progress in achieving its peace initiatives. It’s exciting to see what the next work will be.”

Especially, at these days events, there were booths installed to fund-raise for countries which were prone to severe natural disasters. HWPL, IWPG, IPYG, and citizens were continuously putting hands together to help those who are suffering from Sri Lanka flood and a severe outcome caused by earthquakes in Ecuador that happened recently.

Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), a UN DPI registered NGO, is an internationally recognized peace organization. It has pioneered various peace activities including the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Office, as well as held peace education seminars, peace walks, and peace forums with the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) and International Peace Youth Group (IPYG).

3rd Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace is an annually and internationally celebrated event to commemorate the proclamation of the Declaration of World Peace presented by Chairman of HWPL on 25 May 2013. The Declaration calls everyone to work to further the cause of world peace, making it a reality in their direct environments.

Legislate Peace Campaign is an advocacy movement in support of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) being developed into an enforceable law. The campaign calls on world leaders and governments to make and enforce a law based on the principles of the DPCW.
