[HWPL] HWPL Hosted Peace Forum in Mongolia!



[HWPL] HWPL Hosted Peace Forum in Mongolia!

Chairman ManHee Lee is the head representative of the global peace organization HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light), which is striving for the enactment and implementation of the international peace law 'Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)'. The  DPCW is a legal instrument comprised of 10 articles and 38 clauses that can end wars and hostilities throughout the world. HWPL is also spreading a culture of peace and implementing peace education.

Chairman ManHee Lee experienced the cruelty and tragedy of war as a veteran of the Korean War. This is one of the reasons why he founded a global peace campaign as the head of HWPL. He has traveled the globe more than 35 times to meet and persuade politicians, legal experts, journalists, professors, peace activists, civil organization leaders, heads of tribes and others to unite them for the work of peace. The significant fruits borne out of his hard work are the World Alliance of Religions' Peace (WARP) Summit and HWPL Peace Committee. The DPCW was drafted and finalised by the HWPL Peace Committee.

How, you may wonder, do I know this? About 10 years ago, when I had just been discharged from military service, I came to know HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee while researching the topic of civil conflicts to satisfy my curiosity in ongoing global issues. At that time, the island of Mindanao in the Philippines was suffering from a major civil conflict that lasted more than 40 years, and Chairman ManHee Lee and HWPL resolved this conflict through non-violent means.

Chairman Lee brought an end to the conflict in Mindanao by holding a peace talk between the warring Catholic and Islamic groups. Before the talk, HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee held a Peace Walk to spread the culture of peace in Mindanao with the many locals who had gathered out of a desire for peace.

Chairman ManHee Lee's pressing appeal today is that humanity unites for sustainable peace in order to pass on the legacy of peace to future generations worldwide. He doesn't just talk peace, but has worked tirelessly for it through practical peace campaigns for over a decade.

I decided to become a supporter of HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee's peace initiatives because I also desire a world of peace for all posterity.

Today I'd like to introduce an article from HWPL official homepage regarding HWPL's Peace Forum.

Ulaanbaatar Peace Forum: National Pride and the Great Legacy of Peace

On June 21, the ‘Ulaanbaatar Peace Forum: National Pride and the Great Legacy of Peace’ was held at the Tuushin Hotel in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The messengers of peace in Mongolia who attended the event shared the fruits of HWPL peace projects achieved in Mongolia so far and pledged future development.

The event was attended by a total of 400 people, including Oyunbaatar Tserendash, former Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia; Sh. Sukhbaatar and Darjaa Nasanjargal, two former Ministers of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture, and Industry; and Norjmaa Togtokh and Chilkhaajav Avdai, two former Members of Parliament; and numerous government officials, veterans, soldiers, experts in the field of law, education, and religion, as well as citizens.

In celebration of the forum, congratulatory videos were also sent from Romania and Germany. Former Romanian President Emil Constantinescu said, “Your pursuit of peace is applaudable as it is challenging, and it will be as difficult as it is important. To dedicate your efforts to becoming an active messenger for peace is no simple task. What you are embarking upon will require great determination, perseverance, and a great dose of optimism. It will require you to take pride in the smallest of victories and to learn all you can from your setbacks,” delivering his words of encouragement to young people who are committed to peace.

Tuvaan Batsuri, Mongolian War Veteran, paid tribute to HWPL, which hosted the event, and thanked the veterans who survived the war like himself in his congratulatory speech.

“This peace forum, organized by HWPL, aims to make the public recognize the threat and damage of war, keep such terrible acts away, and eliminate war which is an urgent problem in the world,” said Choijamts Yadmaa, Mongolian Major General. “On behalf of the participants in Mongolia’s peacekeeping activities, we support the successful operation of this peace organization, and we hope that the proposals and goals to be pursued at this meeting will be implemented in reality,” he added.

Former Mongolian Deputy Prime Minister Oyunbaatar Tserendash who presented a speech under the theme of ‘Importance of International Cooperation for Peace Building,’ said, “HWPL’s peace activities conducted in Mongolia so far are very important, and the value and understanding of peace are increasing day by day.” And he emphasized, saying “I strongly believe that HWPL’s LP project is becoming a reality in Mongolia, and through this, people will learn peace, love peace, and finally pass on a peaceful society to future generations.”

Sainbuyan Nergui, the Great Monk of Sain Nomuun Monastery, who gave a presentation about ‘Religious alliance activities in Mongolia’ said, “Religious people’s participation for peace is very important. In God’s religion, there are three cornerstones, namely, karma, soul, and morality. Among them, the root cause of Karma has a great influence on everyone’s peace and welfare. The more good karma spreads, the better society and family can be. Anyone in any religion should pay attention to these three things. If we can do that, peace will come of its own accord.”

Baatar Battulga, the Senior Specialist of Curriculum Implementation at the General Authority for Education said, “To achieve peace, we must first understand the value of peace. HWPL’s Peace Education instills youth in their desire to protect the planet and teaches them to create a positive atmosphere in schools, classrooms, and homes. In particular, it is important to teach children ethics and humanitarian education,” reaffirming the importance of Peace Education.

Finally, the IPYG performance team performed “Beautiful Nation, Mongolia,” and participants signed their support for the “Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).” HWPL, which has been actively carrying out peace projects in Mongolia since October last year, plans to spread a culture of peace with experts in various fields in Mongolia and encourage civil society to actively participate in peace activities.
