“I sincerely thank you for your education in the spirit of noble truth search for the future of the nation and people. And I sincerely congratulate you on the successful implementation of peace education by Master Peace, whom I met in Romania last year. Here in Romania, I felt the people’s earnest desire for freedom in their hearts. I maybe it began when they achieved democratization in Eastern Europe 30 years ago. I think it can make them to continue to strive for better development.
And Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL, despite his near 90s, has been a global village owner with no spare life. He made an appeal for cooperation for peace, carrying out a schedule that even young people could not afford. His firm commitment and actions are the best and most living peace education for all mankind.
As you can see from the video of how great the peace fruits of HWPL have been, the fruit of HWPL has never been achieved by a private organization and not achieved by the state. What’s next is that young people and women, who have inherited the spirit of peace, are creating peace together with the speed of light.
As a mother of children, I hope that our children will no longer grow up in a culture of war and violence, but live happily and safely in a culture of peace. If you continue to strive for peaceful education and the spread of peace and culture, such as DPCW, which is the definite answer to restoring the original shape of the global village and achieving peace, I am confident that our children who will lead our future will live in a peaceful world where there is no more war and violence.
When you change your mind, you can change your culture. When you change your culture, you can change the destiny of the world.
Let’s awaken a sense of peace and create a culture of peace. And let’s protect our children from war and conflict and pass on peace to posterity. As the Korean saying goes, “A good beginning is half the battle,” you have opened the beginning of HWPL peace education, so please continue to implement and promote it to spread beyond Romania to all over Europe.
Let us all create a peace culture with one heart to end the war and create a world of eternal peace.
The role of HWPL is important more than ever. Today, we live in a different World. Open a new era of peace with HWPL! The founder of HWPL, Chairman Man Hee Lee, has been tirelessly giving effects with contribution. We are hopeful that DPCW, in the long run, will definitely get status of “Law of Peace”. In order to create a peaceful world without war, We need more than just a practical law. International women groups are gathered to practice a warm “mother’s Love” where peace is needed.
Harmony, Communication, and Peace with the 3.7 Billion Women in the World
At the 3rd of Apr., 2019 09:00(GMT +3), IWPG World Peace Conference in Europe is held now. 3.7 billion Women is Our Hope and Our Power. Women’s life and tolerance to protect their children is the “KEY” of peace. Women, please help. War kills too many people. Your role is very important.
At the 2nd of Apr., 2019 16:00(GMT+3), 2019 PEACE EDUCATION Conference was held in Romania during HWPL 31st World Peace Tour. It was attended by Emil Constantinescu, Romania’s 3rd president, and Romania’s current education minister. Now, Peace education has become more important than any other era. With peace education, what does the future hold for the citizens these children grow up to be? There are children with the seed of peace. The efforts of everyone here can help them blossom.
One professor of international law said “Actually, the DPCW document has synthesized many of the existing documents, many of the existing instrument and the declarations which has been drawn for building peace and ending war. The strength of the DPCW is simplicity and it’s very accommodative with the existing norms. So this is its strength and very confident that if the DPCW is well read and well understood by the global community, then we can build a consensus for putting more effort into building peace in the world.”
The Chairman Lee emphasized the meaning of Heavenly Culture and Peace will be achieved through DPCW. Mr. Man Hee Lee said “We now know nothing outweighs the value of peace. The religious world is becoming one with us and so are schools worldwide. They are becoming one with HWPL to achieve a world of peace. What does HWPL stand for? Heavenly Culture, the culture of heaven. We will surely end wars and bring peace. Everyone involved in implementing international law based on the DPCW will be remembered in history. Moreover, I believe that with heavenly culture, we can change the world into a better place. I firmly believe this. We are one! We are one!”
IMPORTANCE of HWPL Peace Education
STRONGER MILITARY STRONGER WEAPONS STRONGER SECURITY But can it really be the answer for building peace? How can we achieve peace?
By teaching our children to nurture the spirit of peace, you can build a world of peace without seeking war or weapons. This simple innovative idea started at HWPL. Peace Education is now touching hearts around the globe regardless of nationality, race, religion, culture and ideology. The way to achieve world peace once seemed so far away.
Would you believe it if children already have the answer?
“Children, What is peace to you?”
“Peace is love! I love my friends very much so we do not fight.” “Peace means forgiveness. Because when my friend says sorry to me, I just forget everything and I just hug him and it feels so nice.” “For me, Peace is to be grateful to our parents.”
“Peace is love. As I’m living with us, I’m living in love with my friends and this is only peace from us.” “For me, Peace is to become one, to become one with neighbors who are different from me.”
“Cooperation. Nations around the world should gather for the common reason and aim to create the peaceful world.”
“Without peacefulness, we don’t have self-love and self-esteem. When we are peaceful, we have self-love and self-esteem, and focus on self-actualization.”
As the result of the 30th world peace tour was great, I am looking forward to the HWPL 31st World Peace Tour. These postings are the ones that I write one by one. If you look at them one by one, you can see the reason why experts said “HWPL is the most powerful international peace NGO”. Actually, HWPL is associated with UN DPI and ECOSOC.
Why is Mr. Man hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL, supported by 3.7 billion women and 1.6 billion young men? Why is the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) proposed by HWPL the answer to peace?
At the 2nd of Apr., 2019 16:00 (GMT+3), 2019 PEACE EDUCATION Conference will be held in Romania. Regardless of differences in religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, HWPL is closely contributing to the leading for peace. How can we achieve peace? According to statistics of UNICEF, Over 10% of young women in 5 European countries experience sexual violence before age 15. #ENDviolence
Now, The role of Teacher and Peace Education is important more than ever. We are at the forefront in implementing peace education for children and the youth. Especially, Romania is the hometown of H.E. Emil Constantinescu, former president of Romania. He knows peace better than anyone else. I can’t help but admit it when I hear about his life. I wrote down his biography.

Over 1,000 social leaders gathered in Cambodia to discuss ways to make peace in Southeast Asia, according to HWPL 30th World Peace Tour. The ‘Peace Message for the Implementation of Peaceful Religions’ was held in Phnom Penh to develop peace-building measures for Cambodian Peace Process. The event also considered Southeast Asian efforts for decades to tackle violent extremism including terrorism and internal conflicts.
About 450 participants including religious leaders from Buddhism, Islam and Christianity in Cambodia, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, India and Singapore joined the forum. Cambodian supreme monk Tep Vong expressed his support to peace efforts saying that international cooperation as championed by HWPL could end wars and conflicts.
Now I’m writing the lower part of the following posting.
Cambodian Peace Process: 30th Peacetour
One social leader of Cambodia, “Religion should serve as an educator teaching good behaviour to all people in the world. However, some religions are threatening freedom of religion and human rights of religious people. Each religion must cease to do evil in the name of religion.”
Man hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL, urged the forum to support his efforts to have UN resolution for DPCW saying: “Now we have the answer within the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the DPCW to achieve peace and end the war. There is no one who doesn’t want peace.”
What was their joy when the war was over? The 1991 Paris Peace Agreements (Khmer: សន្ធិសញ្ញាសន្តិភាពទីក្រុងប៉ារីស) marked the official end of the Cambodian–Vietnamese War on October 23, 1991. The agreement was signed by nineteen countries. For more than twenty years, an estimated 1.7 million people lost their lives to violence and famine. For agreement, the United Nations would send a mission to Cambodia (UNTAC) until 1993. The purpose is to make “an environment in which respect for human rights shall be ensured.”
Professor Surya Subedi of Nepal emphasized that signing of the Agreements has brought “enormous dividends” to all Cambodians. This is really a huge one. Now they can grow and develop. This is because the culture of peace has been established.
War is still going on, and countless people are suffering. To them, death is too near, and precious people are easily lost. Who can handle their pain? Who can sympathize with their pain?
Writing this, I would like to ask the King of Cambodia, Prime Minister, President of the Senate, President of the National Assembly and all Cambodians to support the DPCW. Because you have already experienced peace! You know what the power of a piece of paper is. Haven’t you experienced a lot of the pain of war? If you really love peace, please support DPCW. Or come up with an new answer to peace. Stay still is because you want a war and are waiting for it.
Please try to help people all over the world experience a culture of peace. DPCW can change the world. There are two paths in front of us. “Peaceful Future” or “Endless War” Let’s leave peace as a legacy to future generations.
Already, UN permanent representatives of 145 countries recognize the need for the DPCW. In 2017, the central american parliament passed a resolution in support of the DPCW. In Africa, HWPL and the Pan-African Parliament (PAP) signed MOU to support the DPCW. The PAP is the legislative body of the African Union consisting of 55 countries of the continent of Africa. This means the support of the entire continent of Africa.
Not at all, Seychelles, Eswatini, and Comoros expressed support for the DPCW at the NATIONAL LEVEL.
Now only your choice remains. What is your choice?
The Messenger of Peace with Light “I saw the Light from him!”
During the HWPL World Peace Tour, there were often people who recognized at a glance that Chairman Man Hee Lee was the messenger of peace. Let me tell you the story of those who came to see the light.
1. During the HWPL 9th World Peace Tour in April 2014, the Chairman Lee and Peace Mission stepped off the plane to pick up their luggage, and a couple came and told them to take a picture of him. When asked “why?”, they said “I saw a big light on you, so I wanted to celebrate it because it’s mysterious.” The couple were religious leaders who led 300 churches in Mexico. The couple is currently working as HWPL ambassadors, currently, 556 HWPL ambassadors are working for peace, which also affected the spreading the culture of peace in Mexico.
2. During the HWPL 9th World Peace Tour, Brazilian lawyers and doctors came to take pictures with the Chairman Man Hee Lee. They first saw him at a seminar two days ago, and he was seen as a light among many religious leaders. They said “Two days ago, you appeared to be a light in the middle of religious leaders at the seminar. It’s like a dream to meet again.” Among them, women joined the IWPG right there.
3. During the HWPL 14th World Peace Tour, a rabbi met in New York also begged the Peace Mission to take a picture with him, saying he saw the light. And he promised to come to the 918 WARP Summit.
4. When HWPL went to a former European president’s house on a visit, they saw his wife at home very surprised and asked her why, and she said “There was no human being seen and a large image of light came in” when the Peace Mission entered.
This happens frequently during Man Hee Lee’s peace tour. This is another way for the Messenger of Peace to inform the people light of the “God is with him” and to continue the meeting that Heaven has been arranged.

Comparative Study on religious Scriptures
The WARP Office continued its steps to achieve harmony and peace with local religious leaders in the Philippines, Australia and Cambodia. For peace between religions, the WARP Office is now actively engaged in exchanges around scriptures in different countries, and is receiving favorable reviews as it creates an understanding ground for other religions. Recently, they have voiced their opinions on the ban on religious discrimination and the elimination of coercive conversion.
Participants of the forum said “In order to build peace between religions, we must find the most trustworthy scriptures and truths through the comparative study on religious scriptures, and in order to achieve this, we must continue to have conversations between religions.”
“This is the answer to the peace of religion.”
One president of the Islam society, who participated in the debate, “We should find and study the most reliable religious scriptures for peace between religions. We should try to accept them wholeheartedly, even if the scriptures are not his own religious scriptures.”
The WARP Office is currently held in 219 regions in 128 countries and is urging unity among religions. HWPL said “It is regrettable that religion is becoming an occasion for international conflicts. The comparative study on religious scriptures is a way to overcome differences in religion and find core values of mankind.”
Peace Message for the Implementation of Peaceful Religions
Date: At the 22nd of Feb., 2019 08:00 (GMT+7)
Here, I wrote a posting about Cambodia’s history. Cambodia is a country with a lot of pain and suffering. The “Killing Fields” (Khmer: វាលពិឃាត) is where collectively more than a million people were killed and buried by the Khmer Rouge regime, during its rule of the country from 1975 to 1979, immediately after the end of the Cambodian Civil War.
Great Supreme Patriarch Tep Vong
He made an impressive speech. Even at many years of age, his desire to devote himself to the peace movement was like Gandhi. Many young people must respect him. He said “As a Supreme Patriarch, on behalf of the Cambodian Council of Religious Affairs, we welcome the visit of the Chairman Man Hee Lee. He is one of the most famous people in the world, who has brought together all the leaders of religion, state, education and law to create cooperation, and to bring peace to this time and to the future. Cambodia is a Southeast Asian country with many wars and sorrows the world has never seen.
But on January 7, 1979, the Democratic Kampuchea, Pol Pot‘s government, was collapsed. On 1998, the Prime Minister Hun Sen and the Cambodian People’s Party completely ended the civil war that was taking place in the Cambodian kingdom. So since 1998, Cambodia has had peace, and Cambodia has had many opportunities to develop its economy.
Cambodia has never had a religious conflict. According to Article 43 of the Cambodian Constitution, every Cambodian citizen has the right to follow the religion he or she wants. With the support of the government, all religions in the kingdom of Cambodia are holding religious meetings and communicating. For example, on February 6, 2019, the HWPL Religious Youth Peace Campwas organized in cooperation with IPYG.
I have been active in peace with Cambodian people for 40 years since 1979. I am currently engaged in peace activities, and I want to do peace activities in the future as long as my health permits. In order for future generations to live in a time of peace, we must work together to educate future generations to live in peace. Through this cooperation, I hope that we can end war and conflict in this world and that our future generations will live in peace forever.
Lastly, I hope that the four blessings of Buddha will be yours, Chairman Man Hee Lee, all distinguished guests and ladies. The 4 blessings are Life, beauty, happiness and power. Thank you.”
Chairman Man Hee Lee Peace Quotes
In particular, the Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL emphasized “Religion should do good and give hope to the world, but today’s religion is causing many wars and conflicts. Aren’t they doing worse than nonreligious people? That’s why the religious world must look for “the Truth“. All religious leaders around the world should participate in comparative study and discussions on religious scriptures. Religion will be one under the most reliable scriptures.”
His speech will be addressed in the next posting. The Chairman Lee is the messenger of peace with the answer to peace, and he spoke with all his heart. Despite his old age, he is risking his life for peace. That’s why he is supported by 1.6 billion Young people and 3.7 billion Women.
Mr.Man Hee Lee, the chairman of HWPL, and the peace mission spread peace throughout the world with the answer to peace in the eastern country of Korea.
Starting in 2012, and continuing his world peace tour until now in 2018, the Chairman Man Hee Lee has toured 70 countries in a total of 29 times. The messenger of peace went to anywhere, such as war zones where bullets flew in and out or places where armed rebels, if they needed peace. How can he work so passionately? Because he said “In this time, I am convinced that making peace is what heaven had commanded me, and that I can achieve peace.”
All expenses were covered with HWPL’s money, without anyone’s support. The steps he has taken so far are enough to believe that the Messenger of Peace will end all wars and achieve world peace. The Chairman Man Hee Lee’s journey around the globe is revolutionary and important, but it is too vast to record all of it, so I will only give you a glimpse of the unusual.
Now, he is now on the HWPL 30th World Peace Tour. The peace mission is heading for Cambodia beyond the Philippines and Australia.
Here comes the Messenger of Peace with the Answer of Peace!
HWPL is warmly welcomed wherever it goes. On the day the envoys arrive in each country, the airport is packed with young people and local residents who voluntarily gather after hearing the news of HWPL’s visit. Because everyone in the world is hungry for a dream “Peace” that has never been achieved in the history of the global village.
So many young people follow the Chairman Man Hee Lee as the ‘Father of Peace.’ And from the moment when HWPL comes to the moment when if flies to another, governments accord them the treatment of a national guest to show their support for the HWPL’s peace activities.
What is the Answer to Peace? DPCW!
Only proclaimed three years ago, more than 700,000 citizens from 176 countries signed autographs to support the DPCW. And more than 500 DPCW supporting events were held in more than 74 countries. The DPCW, loved by national support and young people around the world, is moving toward a resolution by the United Nations General Assembly. As a developing country, Southeast Asia is now facing a lot of difficulties in joining the developed world. It is essential that peace be achieved for development. Peace enables us to achieve sustainable goals.
The 10 Articles and 38 Clauses of the DPCW will actually achieve world peace. If all of leaders of all Southeast Asian countries show their support for the DPCW to the heads of state and officials, world peace will be achieved soon. And on March 14, All Youth’ll send handwritten peace letters to leaders around the world to ask you to support the DPCW, We can change not only Southeast Asia but the whole world.
Mr. Man Hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL, strongly said “I’m here today to ask you very strongly. In order for us to live in peace, we believe that all the people of today’s globe must make efforts for peace. I don’t think it’s a matter of waiting for someone to bring it. Wouldn’t it be better to make peace than any power or substance and leave a legacy for future generations? But what has changed? Has peace been achieved? Each day, the war got worse, the conflict got worse, and the global community was threatened. Do you still just watch it?
But now it was different. The sky is not just looking at the human race. Give the answer to peace, and make peace. The answer is the 10 Articles and 38 Clauses of the DPCW. I want to ask all the politicians and intellectuals around the world. If anyone thinks this doesn’t end the war, you must said “This cannot end the war because of this problem, so let’s discuss together.” Isn’t it so? If there is an answer to be able to end the war and you are not interested in it, would it be real politics? What are you waiting for? It’s like you’re waiting for a war.
I has traveled around the globe a few times. But there was no one who was against peace. And there was no one who liked war. Isn’t that what every family in the world wants? So what do the leaders of each country want? Shouldn’t we do what the people want? All the students and young people in each country will stand up more and more.
No amount of power or money is enough for your children to live well. The conditions for a well-being are to create a world of peace without war and to leave a legacy, which is what we have to do today. You have more knowledge and experience than me. I think you can do it. I sincerely hope that you will do so. Thank you.”
On the 918 WARP Summit, Ms. Hyun Sook Yoon, IWPG Chairwoman, said “In the world of the 21st century, people across the continent are able to meet people on the other side of the globe in just a few hours. In addition, with the development of information and communication, a large amount of information can be delivered in real time through the internet. However, in this world of convenience, we are constantly exposed to heartaches such as wars, terrorism, abuse of human rights, and news of sad deaths of beloved children throughout the world.
The noble maternal instincts that women have can protect children from the front lines of war. It is the most powerful force and answer to peace that can lead mankind into a world of peace. Because half of the world’s population are women with the potential of peace, if we become one, mankind can turn into a peaceful world without war.”
IWPG is working to make sure that all children and women have the right values through peace education. I believe that there is no change as fast as education. IWPG is taking the answer to peace suggested by HWPL, the “Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)”, and is actively spreading a culture of peace in diverse ways such as implementing peace education and training peace educators.
“We have cooperation agreements with schools around the world and are working to establishing peace schools and education. We have launched the “10 Million Signature Campaign for Urging for a Peace Agreement for the Cessation of War on the Korean Peninsula” for peace on the Korean peninsula and currently it is being achieved as written on the “Declaration of Unification”.
In order to end the global war and make a world of peace, ourselves first have to know this declaration of peace. We must inform my neighbors, and let the nations and the presidents know and participate. I hope that 3.7 billion women around the world will be the protagonist of peace with us. Let us all become the messengers of peace and realize world peace together.”
Man Hee Lee Peace Quotes
The Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL gave a special request to those in attendance stating, “The strength of one person, is only that one person’s strength. But if we come together for this work of peace, then it will become a great power. Everyone woman living in the global village should become one through the common objective and shout together with a common voice. You should write letters to former and current presidents. We need to write not only to our president but to those all over the world.”
He then continued, “Also you should tell not only the people of your own countries but the people from other countries as well about the method of becoming one together with the women of the IWPG. Two is more powerful than one, but if there are many it will never be broken. Since the goal is peace, nothing is more precious and important than the work of making the world of peace that can be left as a legacy for future generations. I believe in the women’s group and the youth group.”
Harmony, Communication, and Peace with the 3.7 Billion Women in the World
On the 18th of Feb, 2019, IWPG World Peace Conference in Australia was held in order to inspire a sense of duty as a women leader to achieve world peace, and to recognize its role as a messenger of peace. IWPG shared the initiatives and activities of IWPG over the past year and presented the main directions for 2019.
People who contributed to work of peace were motivated for peace by being presented the Plaques of Appreciation Ceremony. First ladies were inspired their mission to realize peace through the inauguration ceremony of the “IWPG Peace Network of First Ladies”.
IWPG Chairwoman strongly emphasized “IWPG consists of more than 100 branches and 240 affiliated organizations. The Peace Mission with HWPL and IPYG is currently on the 30th World Peace Tour and everyone wanted.
Even now, there are children and young people who are dying of war. Also in the midst of the war, women’s human rights are being violated. Should we just sit back and let it go? Young people and women all over the world should be brave enough to talk about inconvenient truths, and institutional support is also needed to prevent war. If war is a problem, there should be an answer to it. IWPG found the answer in DPCW.
When one changes one’s mind, culture changes and civilization changes. Let us awaken all to the culture of peace. We are all messengers of peace.”
IPYG and IWPG are the two wings of HWPL. HWPL is the international peace organization, a group of people who love the global community. We have come together in the noble cause of peace. Political leaders signed the agreement to propose the enactment of international law for the cessation of wars and word peace. After that, DPCW was enacted and it is to be the icon of solution of peace to prevent conflicts and disputes. And religious leaders signed the world alliance of religions agreement. For children, leaders of future, HWPL Peace Education is implemented to know the values of peace. We are leading the future to achieve the common goal of peace.
Mr.Man Hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL, emphasized “Why is it necessary to draw up a new law? If the existing laws were already complete, it would be unnecessary to draft a new one. But since it is impossible to put an end to wars of this world with the existing laws, I ask you to develop an international legal instrument that can stand as law forever.”
Thus, a new international law has been created that has supplemented the weaknesses of current international law. In 2017, the central american parliament passed a resolution in support of the DPCW. UN permanent representatives of 145 countires recognize the need for the DPCW. In Africa, HWPL and the Pan-African Parliament (PAP) signed MOU. Seychelles, Eswatini, and Comoros expressed support for the DPCW at the NATIONAL LEVEL.
Also, HWPL and the International Centre for Black Sea-Baltic Studies and Consensus Practices (Centre BBS) signed MOU. HWPL and the Institute for Advancced Studies in Levant Culture and Civilization (ISACCL) signed MOU.
Empower youth to advocate peace through “Peace Letter”
More citizens as well as youth and women’s organizations are showing support for the DPCW to help national leaders implement this declaration and advocate its adoption in the UN. Youth members read the “Peace Letter” to urge national leaders to realize peace through the DPCW and delivered it directly to around 200 leaders from each country that were in attendance.
Why Youth? Because we can stop those innocent people, especially youth from losing their lives in the futility of war. Who can compensate for one’s life? We don’t want to die. We want to love. We want to sing and dance. Our future is not expendable. If we continue to be victims of war, the pain will not be able to be healed in any way.
One member said “As youth, we are the future leaders, we are dynamic, innovative, and full of energy. So, what we do is going to reflect all these characters that we have in us. In order to support the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War, we will need to do what’s best for the youth in our country.”
So far, 170,000 peace letters collected
Obviously, the role of world leaders is a great part to the implementation of the DPCW. However, it is the youth’s role to urge leaders. Youth have the power to move their leaders’ minds. Chairman Lee of HWPL is running with the answer to peace from above. If the answer to world peace is DPCW, 10 Articles and 38 Clauses, the answer to the peace movement of youth is the peace letter. I hope that the youth in this place will also urge their leaders to become peace messengers so that the DPCW can be implemented and developed into a legally binding document.
2019 Youth Peace Conference
Youth Make Tomorrow : Unity & Harmony
On the 18th of Feb, 2019, the “2019 Youth Peace Conference” recalled the role and influence of young people in the world peace and the power of Unity and Harmony, highlighting that each youth should become messenger of peace.
Writing and delivering the Peace Letter activities have reached even to the heads of each state. Youth participants are anticipating it to further advance advocacy activities of young people.
A single individual is weak. But if all the youth of the world unite as one, no one would be able to break them apart. I saw joy and our future in their faces.
The Chairman Man Hee Lee strongly emphasized “We want peace, no matter who we are. While traveling around the globe for a long time, meeting many people, everyone wanted peace. So peace must be achieved.
It will be recorded in the eternal history of future generations. Let’s join in this work of peace and become the messengers of peace. Young people will no longer be victims of war, but protect themselves, and women will also protect children. When we all have one heart, peace will be achieved. Let’s all be the messengers of peace. I wanted to make this request to you, all Youth.
Write a letter to the president of your country and the president of another country and send him a message to make the world a peaceful place together. All men are supposed to be admitted because they have the same mind. If everyone admits it, peace will come to this land. During the 29thworld peace tour, all the lawmakers in Africa supported it. The same was true of Europe. Every place wants peace. In times like this, let’s make peace by writing handwritten letters. Heaven will also help all the people of this land.
What will you leave as an inheritance in future generations? Property? Power? Let’s all leave peace as a legacy. We are one. WE ARE ONE!”
A religion has its role that should spread love and peace. But Destorying individuals and families with powerful authorities is our reality. Furthermore, it induces conflict between religions and countries. Religious people are doing violence and oppression in the name of God and making the global future darker. If we want true peace now, we must stop.
Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL, emphasized “There’s nothing more shameful than knowing that the majority of wars are caused by religion. And not only that, but should fighting and taking people away by force and beating them be happening? This is not a religion. In order to achieve peace, even our religion should become one.” The Chairman Man Hee Lee strongly proclaimed religions must become one in order to achieve peace for humanity.
Religious leaders are not people with little influence. Every word of them is powerful. Religion and ideology are the key reasons for world wars. Once religious leaders have a good heart, the world is at peace. But if religious leaders take the wrong mind, who can take responsibility for the deaths of those countless people?
What is the Answer to Peace?
First, Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)
Do you think peace can be achieved? When we are making a living, spending my personal time, there are people who risked their lives for peace. They are the messengers of peace of HWPL. Especially, despite being over 80 years old, the chairman Man Hee Lee is ahead of all others in work of peace. This is why he is called “the Father of Peace” and why he is supported by 1.6 billion Youth and 3.7 billion Women.
To prohibit the discrimination between nations and religions, HWPL proposed great peace plan called the DPCW. It is a powerful bill that prevents war caused by religion. The Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) has articles to be able to end the war. Article 8 – “Freedom of religion”, Article 9 – “Religion, ethnic identity and peace” and Article 10 – “Spreading a culture of peace” are examples. For this reason, Religious groups are strongly urging for the DPCW legislation.
Second, HWPL WARP Office
At HWPL’s WARP Office, approximately 20 religions and 2,410 people attended. They find the right path for religion through Scripture Comparision and Confirmation.
The chairman Man Hee Lee emphasized “There will only be fighting if there are two or three, or hundreds of religions. But if the scriptures become one then so do the religions. In order for us to be born anew and to become one, we need to know some things that are wrong in our own religion, and to grasp reality.” HWPL is to eradicate social problems caused by religion. Establish international cooperation and solidarity.
He continued “Anyone who received the order of God will have a purpose. We have been running around the world with the answer given from above. At this point, we must work to become one in God as promised. When we come with an answer that can achieve peace, and if everyone is working together by becoming one, it will be done.”
What happened all over the world?
There are numerous religious problems in the world. As you can attest, you can see from the story of Nadia Murad, the winner of the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize. She is a victim of Coercive Conversion to ISIS. Also in South Korea, two people were killed by coercive conversion. Religious leaders who support world peace strongly criticized this incident. In particular, peace activists around the world protested for the 27-year-old Gu Ji-in who suffocated of coercive conversion in January 2018. Foreign media such as The New York Times and the Washington Times also helped the victims like Ms.Gu.
One religious leader said “Unfortunately at times as an advocator of one religion, we start enforcing our beliefs on others. These actions are a violation of basic human rights and must be stopped!”
Another religious leader emphasized “Recently, very recently, one young lady was killed by a hard attack while she was taught by a preacher who converted her religion by compulsion. It is too bad that this accident happened among Christians who spread the spirit, just as the spirit of love. First, religions should respect and love one another, then this whole humanity will become one.”

Religious World Without Discrimination, Religious Leaders Becoming one
Peace has always been a distant future for us. However, if religious people all over the world become one, “Peace” will become reality. Let us all work together with the mission of peace. “WE ARE ONE! WE ARE ONE! WE ARE ONE!”
