Peace is the way


“There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.”
The preamble to the United Nations Charter sums up the existential dilemma of today: “Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that defences of peace must be constructed”.
The challenge today is in creating peace, and not in appreciating peace as a concept. And this cannot be done if we keep concentrating on destruction.
It is time now to literally construct peace. But Peace is not just a feeling or a state of being. It is not just something that one would achieve only during long hours of prayers or meditation. And it is certainly not end-of-war alone. Peace is life itself. It is our original religion. Peace, therefore, is a natural instinct and if we wish to construct a peaceful world, then all we’ve got to do, is to let it manifest in our lives.

Paradise is called so not just because it is believed to be a place of scenic beauty

it is also where the divine virtues of love and peace prevail.

To achieve peace, three things have to be borne in mind: that peace is our natural religion; that all that we do affects those  around us; and that to recharge our pure energies, we need to connect to the Supreme Source.

A life operating on these three laws of peace will tangibly transform everything to a peaceful state and recreate the one culture that we all wish to re-establish in the world – that is, the culture of peace.
War and terrorism have cast their shadow on the world.

Most world leaders, international organisations and so-called peace summits tend to define peace in the shadow of war, as ‘a situation where there is no war “between nations.

By defining light as the ‘absence of darkness “or, life as the ‘absence of death”, we assign greater importance to the powers of darkness and death, or in the case of peace, to war, rather than peace.
Peace is desirable, as is striving for peace. We agree that peace-marches and war protests have a place in this world, and unfortunately so does war.One man’s war is another man’s peace.

To achieve peace, three things have to be borne in mind: that peace is our natural religion; that all that we do affects those who surround us; and that to recharge our pure energies, we need to connect to the Supreme Source.

A life operating on these three laws of peace will tangibly transform everything to a peaceful state and recreate the one culture that we all wish to re-establish in the world – that is, the culture of peace.
This is the way of peace: Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.
The way of peace is the way of love. Love is the greatest power on earth. It conquers all things.
