Religions around the world have great vitality after having accompanied humankind in their development for millennia. Whatever religion it is, the fundamental doctrines are based on pure and good intentions that teach people to act in kind, believe in cause and effect, and advocate for peace.
In today’s world, we are facing crises of morality and of belief, issues with racial violence, climate catastrophe, social injustice, and economic disparity. Yet three-quarters of the world’s population have faith in a myriad of religions. If all of the people with faith can open their hearts to see the commonalities among different religions, practice tolerance, mutual respect, solidarity, and friendliness, it will certainly play a pivotal role in world peace.
In the vast, boundless universe, our Earth is like a speck of dust. All who live on this Earth are members of the same family. We should cultivate ourselves to overcome superstition, delusions, attachments, and prejudices; work together to eliminate hatred and hostility, to love and be kind to each other, and coexist in harmony. In the interest of a bright future for humanity, we must light up the beacon of selflessness, dedication, compassion, and tolerance in our heart, and take wisdom and virtues as the guiding light to dispel the darkness of ignorance.
May the people from different countries, ethnicities, and religions unite together in calling for peace, spreading the concept of peace, and sowing the seeds of peace around the world. We shall unite together to resist war, stop all violence, protect the ecological system and end poverty! We at Jinyin Temple look forward to seeing you promoting the development of human civilization, guiding mankind into a selfless world of great harmony and love, uniting humanity to build a spiritual civilization of shared destiny, and creating a happy and beautiful world of bliss for all!
Let the boundless love of our heart spread to every corner of the world.
May there be no more hatred or hostility.
May all sentient beings rejoice in the goodwill that has been brought forth by this love we share!
May peace always prevail in this world!
