Spiritual Forum for World Peace - a proposal by T.Y.S. Lama Gangchen

Photographic Reportage

At the dawn of the third millennium, democracy human rights, justice and peace have become overwhelmingly relevant globally as we face ever increasing violence, unrest and wars. The present world situation calls for urgent and long term solutions; surely the time has come to allow this seed to grow and help bring peace to our planet. There are numerous spiritual/inter-religious organisations and leaders actively working for peace worldwide in many different ways.

This proposal, although initiated by T.Y.S. Lama Gangchen, is an open collective project, a full partnership to unite them into one voice, by creating a permanent Spiritual Forum within the existing United Nations structure, to contribute and bring both spiritual and material support to the United Nations. Support from every angle of society is essential and decisive if this common wish is to become a reality: one new solution for this world in the third millennium. Make the proposal for a Permanent United Nations Spiritual Forum, a priority on your agenda now, for peace please!

Since the 8th of June 1995, when the proposal for a United Nations Spiritual Forum was first presented at ECLAC (the Latin American Headquarters of the United Nations Economic Commission) in Santiago, Chile, it has been publicised worldwide through mailing, conferences, interfaith celebrations, world peace peace prayers, and so forth. It was further offered to many inter-religious, indigenous, multicultural and multifaith organisations, such as: the World Conference on Religion and Peace; the United Religions Initiative, the World Peace Prayer Society; the Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions; the Interfaith Center of New York, the Temple of Understanding; the Institute for Religious Studies; to name but a few.

Lama Gangchen both appreciates and supports the efforts of all organisations and initiatives working towards the one aim of peace, wishing for all to unite in a common forum under the auspices of the United Nations: a gift for world peace in the third millennium.
