RELIGIONS ARE DIVINE SCHOOLS WHERE ALL GOOD THINGS ARE DEFINED, TAUGHT AND PRACTICED

Isn’t it scary that different religions try to claim a monopoly to truth?

How does a Christian feel if he/she meets an equally fanatical Muslim?
Do you realise how similar some of your arguments get and how eerie that both sides are equally convinced that the other is wrong and doomed to hell?

If Christian Trinity God is the One True God, He will subdue all the world, why should Christians fear criticism or disminicration? And if Muhammadan Allah is the One True God, why should Muslims also fear? I think anybody believing in the One True God, he should prove God’s omnipotence by showing selfless love to all people without fear of any opposition. Our doubt is a proof that we have no true faith in God.
Truth never belongs to those who claim monopoly to it. Truth must be naturally truth to all people.
Praying that all men will soon realize the truth revealed by the Messengers of the One True God and cease to cherish division like people in the past due to the natural and human barriers.

In other words, religion doesn’t matter as long as we remain good i guess…
but sadly this is usually not the case.

Religions are divine schools. In those schools all good things are defined, taught and practiced. Thanks to this love of God, we have the Hebrew, Christian, Islamic… civilizations. But not all the believers of these religions have learned and practiced properly their divine teachings, so people of other faiths and cultures become allergic about their words; especially when they claim monopoly of truth!

Now, we have the Torah, the Bible, the Quran, easily and freely accessible on the Internet, so we can read and practice them by our own understanding and willingness. We do not depend on any organizations or individuals.

We are thankful to God for providing to us the UN and the Internet, so from now on we can have good means and support to make independent investigation of truth for ourselves, without being affected by traditions, imitations or false interpretations of the priests as in the previous millennia.

I am happy to invite you to various gatherings in the World Interfaith Harmony Week which will be held in all countries of the world to exchange views with other people and to contribute your act of love for a better world.

The more conscious and profound preparation we make for this occasion, the better we will have the fruit of love, harmony and peace.

 

THE UN IS ENABLING US TO MAKE FREE JOURNEY ON THE RIGHT DIRECTION TO THE GLORIOUS FUTURE OF OUR WORLD

Is there no way people can just speak one language in the whole world?

why can’t all africans speak swahili while europeans speak only english, and the asians speak arabs, than there will be only 3 languages in the whole world and it will be easier?

There is much hope that man will necessarily choose one world language for the benefit of all mankind.
The UN will improve in prestige and in efficiency, that national leaders there may trustfully agree on a Convention about World Language, like the Conventions for World Trade, World Health, World Labor…
All nations will make progress much faster and more synchronically thanks to a common language, and anywhere we go we will have the same impression as staying in our homeland.

We will try our best to preserve all languages for their spiritual value, beauty, nuance… But for the convenience of our daily communication, perhaps a world government will choose an existing language or to create a new one, which is similar or better than English. Today, anyone who knows English can do his learning more conveniently than other people, because it is used  and taught in almost all countries and the translation back and forth into other languages is most convenient by the Internet.

I firmly believe that the existing UN will improve and will enable us to enter a new phase of speedy advancement in all aspects. Its new Resolution on October 20, 2010, about the World Interfaith Harmony Week clearly shows that this global institution is enabling us to make free journey on the right direction to the glorious future of our world.

 

 

PRAYING THAT MANY PEOPLE WILL SPEND THE WORLD INTERFAITH HARMONY WEEK IN FEBRUARY EACH YEAR TO FIND OUT THE DIVINE LESSON OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

If today you think of doing one good selfless act of kindness for the entire of humanity what would that be?

4 years ago

Best Answer by Tu Nga – Chosen by Asker

Introducing to them the religion of the One True God.
All other acts of kindness have to be done, but they are just like applying medicament on a sore skin.
The introduction and acceptance of the Religion of God is the complete purification of the body, mind and soul for a healthy and eternal life.
And religious people are trying to do this work everyday, regardless of all criticism, hatred and persecution.

Agree, but it is tough because the decision for what is true requiring too much research, contemplation, prayer?!

Yes, we all want  to serve mankind, but it should be easier and more simple.

Yes, it is also very difficult for me. I dare not ask you to come to me for guidance and assistance.

Yes, it is so complicated and difficult that only the Messengers of God can teach and can show concrete and most glorious examples to us: Christ’s death on the cross; Muhammad’s evacuation and persecution from Mecca to Medina for thirteen years; Baha’u’llah’s exile and imprisonment from Iran to Akka, Palestine for over forty years….

I pray that many people will take the occasion of the World Interfaith Harmony Week in February each year to find out this divine lesson of unconditional love taught and exemplified by the Messengers of God, in order that we will be able to do some good selfless act of kindness for the entire humanity as we wish.

To become a Buddhist is not to join a sect of Buddhism, but it is to learn and apply the teachings of Buddha in your life. So instead of seeking for any Buddhist organizations, you better read the Holy verses of Buddha which are freely available on the Internet.
When you understand some of His verses and sincerely apply them in your life, He will guide you to His true religion.

“Earnestness is the path of immortality (Nirvana), thoughtlessness the path of death. Those who are in earnest do not die, those who are thoughtless are as if dead already.”
Dhammapada, Sacred Books of the East 2

Let the wise man guard his thoughts, for they are difficult to perceive, very artful, and they rush wherever they list: thoughts well guarded bring happiness.
Dhammapada, Sacred Books of the East 2

For with the Buddhist faith there came the germ of the belief that the Gautama Buddha in his own grandeur bore witness to One Greater – the Amitabha or Amida Buddha – that One who in boundless light abideth, life of the Universe, without colour, without form, the Lover of man, his Protector and Refuge. He may, He must be worshipped, for in Him are all the essential attributes of Deity, and He, the Saviour of mankind, has prepared a pure land of peace for his servants, beyond the storms of life and death.
SHINRAN SHONIN, BUDDHIST PSALMS , TRANSL. S. YAMABE AND L. ADAMS BECK

I happily join these forums on the Internet, because it proves that we can converse peacefully and we may live harmoniously when we learn the religious teachings from any sources and conduct an independent life by ourselves. Our disputes are evidently due to our lack of knowledge. If I point out to the asker the names of any Buddhist sects or the names of other religions, he may become more confused. The names, like the labels, are themselves the source of boundaries and misunderstandings.

As for World Interfaith Harmony, it is not enough to open conversations about religions, but we need to seek understansing concerning all essential matters concerning the human life. Yes, what is the universal truth for all people, and where and from whom to seek for it?

It seems that the prior requisite is not to get the truth, but the loving attitude on the way to seek for it. We are probably like thirsty people in the desert: instead of argueing what kind of liquid that can extinguish it, we better think of how we can reach the source of water and happily share it among ourselves.

In reality, from time immemorial God has provided us with the water that we can drink and never thirst again, but our ignorance has intoxicated it with prejudices, superstitions, shallow interpretations… and we keep on urging other people to drink! Perhaps, in the next century, the majority among us will consent easily and thankfully that the teachings of God are the pure water for our eternal life.

But at this desperate point, that the UN is itself confused, we better maintain great patience and amity, in order that we can embark on the journey to seek for the common faith. In the spiritual matter we might need more perseverance than on economic or political matters. Nobody will act as educators, but each individual should maturely seek for the Divine Educator by himself, even right here on the Internet. Throughout my posts, you see that I have a strong faith in God, but I do not dare call anyone to follow my footseps, which are truly human steps into waywardness. God sends us here one by one, so He leads us back one by one through the divine guidance of the Holy Spirit.

 

THAT HISTORICAL RESOLUTION OF THE UNITED NATIONS IS AN EVIDENT SIGN OF MATURITY OF THE HUMAN RACE

Proper education to distinguish prejudices from true knowledge.
Starting the fight first in our own selves.
Proper education means physical, intellectual and spiritual education.
True knowledge means knowledge from the perfect Educator.
Fighting against self, because we see best what we bear in our own hearts; and other people have their own struggles against their different prejudices.

I become tremendously happy with the Resolution of the UN General Assembly on October 20, 2010,  making the first week of February every year the World Interfaith Harmony Week.

Here are some of the reasons:

The Resolution passed on October 20, 2010, that is the Birthday of the Bab, the Forerunner of the Baha’i Faith. The divine mission of the Bab (Gate, in Arabic) is to close the door of the Prophetic Cycle (from Adam) to the Cycle of Fulfilment which will last no shorter than 5000 centuries.

All sorts of misunderstandings, prejudices, wrongdoings… occur in the Adamic Cycle, which are considered as symptoms of the Age of immaturity of the human beings. Despite all that, mankind already reach the level of national unity, and are coming up to the level of world unity. The Resolution of the United Nations clearly marks this mature point of the human race.

Now, with the broadening of human sight to encompass the whole planet, thanks to that international institution, and the Internet, and the tendency of cooperation instead of confrontation (because we realize that nobody will win with the atomic war!), so there is much hope for this global enterprise: attaining global harmony for universal peace.

The UN, which represents all nations and all organizations, does not claim the exclusive possession of truth and does not impose its Resolution on any smaller entities; now, who has the knowledge and power to arrogantly think and do otherwise!

Some immature individuals may still imagine that they are mystically wiser and more powerful than the UN representatives, and we know that such attitude cannot attract any mature human beings to their side. And they can no longer have the blind masses to support such backward thinking. So the more urgent  the mature people, without disguising under any labels, embark on learning and acting humbly and harmoniously, the sooner the cause of universal peace will attain the gloriously final triumph.

Right. They all worship the One True God, written and spelled differently in Aramaic and in Arabic. All monotheistic religions are basically one and the same.

Dear Muslim friend, that is what you say about the Christian friends; now, what should I say about your attitude concerning other religions, especially the Baha’i Faith. You may not understand the Buddhist teachings for they are written in Sanskrit, but the Baha’i Teachings are clearly and authentically revealed in Arabic.

I am reading the Dhammapada, the Bhagavad Gita, the Bible, the Torah, the Vedanta, the Quran, the Kitab-i-Iqan… and I venerably love Muhammad, Christ, Moses, Abraham, Buddha, Khrisna, Zoroaster, the Bab, Baha’u’llah; so who is to be blamed for our disharmony?!

Now, you might have learned that the UN has passed a noble Resolution, on October 20, 2010, to make the first week of February each year the World Interfaith Harmony Week; so should we start learning again all the divine teachings to attain a consensus as  the representatives of diverse countries and territories at the General Assembly of the United Nations have done on that historical day.

Yes, it is no longer the time for mature human beings to blame God or to blame other people for our own ignorance. God has bestowed on us all the intelligence to learn and to practice loyally the lesson of unconditional love. In the Age of immaturity we have depended on our fathers, priests and kings; now at the Age of human maturtiy, we must seek the truth independently for ourself. Now, let us, Christians, Muslims, Baha’is… meet somwhere next February to continue this interesting conversation, if you don’t have time to start it right here and now.

Praying that the One True God will lead us to that happy time of harmonious reunion.

 

WHEN WE DON’T TRUST OUR GREATEST GIVER, WE CANNOT TRUST THE TAKERS OF OUR LABOUR, OUR PROPERTY, OUR PEACEFUL LIVING

Can an ATHEIST trust anybody?

Atheists are skeptics right? Without proof they won’t beilieve right?
So why would they trust anyone? People can do anything, some of which can be proven and most of it cannot be proven, as logic prevails!
So if Atheists cannot trust each other, would we want to live in such a world?

It is really good that on October 20, 2010, the UN General Assembly made a consensus Resolution to establish the first week of February each year as the World Interfaith Harmony Week. Nobody can tell the result of this Resolution, but it is good that the UN wisely and unitedly calls all mankind of this Age of maturity to rethink, before it is too late for the better existence of the human race on this planet. (I have placed the links to World Religion Day and World Interfaith Harmony Week on te Blogroll for your refernce).

Yes, each individual, especially he who claims to be  a believer of the One True God, should rethink about the purpose of his own life and his relation to the rest of the human race.

What do I know about myself?

What do I know about the world?

What do I know about the purpose of my own life?

How can I realize my purpose in harmony with other people?

How can I co-exist with people of other faith and of no-faith?

Where and from whom can I seek the answers for these essential questions?

I cannot continue my blind survival and fancily expecting that other people will bring to me all good things, or immaturely continuing to desperately spoil my life and other people’s lives.

I don’t think that the UN or the individual nations will impose any human ideologies on us, but they will use all powers and means to facilitate our independent search for the knowledge which benefits the individuals as well as our whole human race.

As a believer in the One True God, I think that, it is the love and trust in God throughout history that have lead us to this stage of high civilization, high hope and high challenge. And the Prophets have showed us that the love and trust of God have caused Them to absolutely love and give Their all to the world of revelation and the world of creation.
