The Power Of The Interfaith Movement: Martin Luther King III Addresses The World Congress Of Religions 2012

WASHINGTON, Dec. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Chairperson Dr. Pradip K. Ghosh opened the World Congress of Religions 2012 by calling forth the interfaith movement as a powerful force for solving social problems. The Congress commemorates the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

Dr. Ghosh stated, "We are fortunate to gather a number of accomplished representatives from various religions for interfaith dialog.  Swami Vivekananda's ideals of universal acceptance will go a long way to foster peace and harmony among people of different faiths and beliefs."

Mr. Martin Luther King III's speech celebrated the visionary moral leadership offered by his father Martin Luther King Jr. and Swami Vivekananda. He called for unity and harmony, built upon the common ground of universal sacred values among religions. He provided personal examples of fostering forgiveness and harmony, and rejection of violence. Mr. King encouraged increasing education on non-violence, including teaching conflict resolution and emotional literacy. Emotional literacy is necessary to reject the culture of violence and deal with anger and frustration in peaceful and creative ways.

He called for millions to rise up and end the pollution of our planet in this decade, using non-violent principles and affirming kinship with all life. The stakes are high: we can learn forgiveness and non-violence or face non-existence. Embracing peace, hope and love is the only way for humanity to survive and prosper.
