The Charter for Global Harmony

The Charter for Global Harmony This document is co-created by Peace-Loving Peoples of different nations, with different religious, ideological, and political affiliations and aspirations. They come from different professions, having different academic backgrounds.

Such differences, however, have not come in their way in creating this document, and working together for Global Harmony. Not merely a Declaration of the Noble Aspirations of its co-creators and all those who would, in future, be the signatories to this – this Charter actually suggests a Road Map to attain, reach, and realize Global Harmony.

It is recognized that all religions, belief systems, faiths (including atheism), spiritual traditions, and philosophies speak of harmony as the soul of all social systems. Any society or social system cannot endure for a long time without upholding this principle.

It is therefore necessary that a roadmap is drawn and agreed upon in order to realize this common goal of all humanity.

The signatories to this charter firmly believe that Global Harmony cannot be enforced. No rules, no regulations, no laws can ever result in Global Harmony, until and unless there is peace in human hearts, so it is the individual that must first be at peace with him/herself.

Such peace within individuals or “Inner Peace” shall automatically express itself as “Communal Love”, both in micro (among the peoples of one community or nation), and macro (among the peoples of the world community).

Finally, it is this Communal Love that can lead us to the attainment of “Global Harmony”.

Using this charter as a tool, we call upon peoples of all nations to spend at least 20 minutes each day in meditation, using any technique that they are familiar with, or which is in line with their tradition/belief system. For it is only through inward looking and meditation that Inner Peace can ever be achieved.

Parallel to this practice, we also call upon all peoples to physically engage themselves unconditionally in some kind of selfless social service for at least 2 hours each week or 8 hours every month.

Such social service undertaken must not be directed to the members of one community alone. Indeed, it would be much more beneficial, if the service is provided to peoples belonging to different communities, having different social, religious, and political affiliations.

Last, but not least, we appeal to one and all to actively socialize this charter and its content, using print, electronic, social media as well as other forms of broadcast in order to get others involved in this humane cause for the attainment of Global Harmony.

WSF supports this Global Call to Prayer for a UN 5th World Conference on Women


Comment by Mataji Gauribrata, Rev Eva on January 5, 2012 at 6:39pm
According to the UN, over 50 million girls in India are missing: having been aborted, killed, or neglected to death simply because they are female. In some regions, no baby girl has survived in years. Help us make a difference.
Save and Protect India's Girls
Comment by Mataji Gauribrata, Rev Eva on December 31, 2011 at 6:18pm


in much gratitude in finding you and the passionate work of saving divine life.
Girls are the daughters of the Divine and the balance to the whole of humanity.
If the world was illumined in consciousness for all mankind to see, they would
be worshipping the divine feminine in the purest form of the spirit's chosen birth
as a girl, a daughter and mother of divinity and unconditional love and compassion.

We will continue to serve as we are called and never cease until the solution is
a reality bringing spirit into the world is not for man to decide who is to live or
die; be nurtured or abused. It is the partnership that we are in with the divine,
to cherish each daughter as if god was present. It is man's duty and dharma
to evolve to his fullest potential and worship knowing shiva shakti is in all.
We are to worship the holy twins of divinity and serve as we would have
Gd be served within an altar.

In pujas we say ihagatcha, ihagathca, welcome  welcome divine soul. Please
come and allow us to worship and serve you as Shiva Shakti within Jivas.
First we must protect the divine feminine in girls and pray for the upliftment
in society to evolve from animality to humanity. So is shall be the balance
within and the balance without that brings us to peace and love, compassion.

Thank you for all you are contributing in your life's and now in mine.

Rev. Cheen, I looked at the description of this book on Amazon. It sounds fascinating and you four authors are surely qualified to write it.

You might be interested in a recent forum posted by N.Shubhakara Jain on "Women and Power" http://www.peacenext.org/profiles/blogs/women-and-power?xg_source=a...

On it I made this comment: If local, state (provincial), and federal governments throughout the world were headed by women, I believe our society would be a better place. Women - in general - are less corrupt, more compassionate, more practical (sic), and better able to see what is right for all, rather than for the chosen few.
