Religion and peace

Devotion, compromise, reconciliation

The principle of devotion is at the foundation of religion itself. The basic requirement for any person who comes under the canopy of religion is devotion to something that is greater than the self. The recognition that one surrenders to something greater than his or her own self-interest naturally requires one's willingness to compromise. This readiness can be harnessed to promote reconciliation.

We are sons of one faith

You are my brother and I love you. I love you when you prostrate yourself in your mosque, and kneel in your church and pray in your synagogue. You and I are sons of one faith - the Spirit.
