“World Religion Day, originally a Baha’i-inspired interfaith idea observed worldwide on the third Sunday of January each year, has taken on a life of its own.” – More here
Let us have concord with our own people,
and concord with people who are strangers to us;
The Divine Twins create between us and the strangers
a unity of hearts.
May we unite in our minds, unite in our purposes,
and not fight against the divine spirit within us.
Let not the battle-cry arise amidst many slain,
nor the arrows of the War-god fall with the break of day.
~Hinduism. Atharva Veda 7.52.1-2″
O Thou kind Lord! Thou hast created all humanity from the one
stock. Thou hast decreed that all shall belong to the same
household. In Thy Holy Presence they are all Thy servants, and
all mankind are sheltered beneath Thy tabernacle; all have
gathered together at Thy Table of Bounty; all are illumined
through the light of Thy Providence.
O God! Thou art kind to all, Thou hast provided for all, dost
shelter all, conferrest life upon all. Thou hast endowed each
and all with talents and faculties, and all are submerged in the
Ocean of Thy Mercy.
O Thou kind Lord. Unite all. Let the religions agree and make
the nations one, so that they may see each other as one family
and the whole earth as one home. may they all live together in
O God! Raise aloft the banner of the oneness of mankind.
