PEACE.. let it begin with me


Our Father, it is thy universe, it is thy will:
Let us be at peace, let the souls of the people be cool.
Thou art our Father, remove all evil from our path.
African
Nuer Prayer (Sudan)
Victory breeds hatred, for the defeated live in pain. Happily live the peaceful, giving up victory and defeat.
Buddhism
Dhammapada 201


"I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love. Thoughts of war bring destruction to all harmony, well-being, restfulness and content. Thoughts of love are constructive of brotherhood, peace, friendship, and happiness."
Baha'i Faith
Abdu'l-Baha
Paris Talks, p. 29


Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God.

"Through what can the Empire be settled? Through unity. Who can unite it? One who is not fond of killing."
Confucianism
Mencius 1.A.6


As rivers flow into the ocean but cannot make the vast ocean overflow, so flow the streams of the sense world into the sea of peace that is the sage.
Hinduism
Bhagavad Gita 2.70



Peace be to earth and to airy spaces!
Peace be to heaven, peace to the waters,
peace to the plants and peace to the trees!
May all the gods grant me peace!
By this invocation of peace may peace be diffused!
By this invocation of peace may peace bring peace!
With this peace the dreadful I appease,
with this peace the cruel I appease,
with this peace all evil I appease,
so that peace may prevail, happiness prevail!
May everything for us be peaceful!
Hinduism
Atharva Veda 19.9.14
