THE JOURNEY OF LIFE IS A PILGRIMAGE; BEAUTIFUL QUALITIES ARE A COMPASS
Intending to advance peace and harmony in our personal lives and in the world, we affirm the following:
We commit to treat all lives with loving-kindness & compassion.
We reject the distortions of religious, national, and racial prejudice, which are used to violate the Golden Rule to treat others as we wish to be treated.
We respect the diversity of ways people pursue their individual ideals.
We challenge the misuse of beliefs, rites, rituals, practices, philosophies, and traditions used to degrade anyone or which lead to violence. We affirm the necessity of bringing loving-kindness & compassion into action.
Through such actions, we seek to improve the relationships of people, one nation to another, one religion to another, one belief system to another, one gender to another, one race to another, and one person to another.
We call upon all people of good will to join this pledge.
We pledge that in all we intend, think, and do, we shall strive to bring loving-kindness & compassion into action and into the lives of all we meet.
