[HWPL] HWPL's WARP Office Signboard Ceremony!



[HWPL] HWPL's WARP Office Signboard Ceremony!

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 WARP(World Alliance of Religions' Peace) Office :)

Signboard Ceremony of HWPL World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Office, Where Religious Leaders Achieve Peace


On October 30th, 2023 HWPL Global 10 branch held a signboard ceremony for the HWPL World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Office, and also held a WARP Office Comparison of Scriptures in Okcheon Daeyaksasa (Buddhism temple).

The 33 attendees took part in a performance event flying paper planes containing expressions of hope for a peaceful world after the signboard ceremony, shouting “We Are One” together with Ven. Meong An, president of the Yeorae Order of Korean Buddhism.

Ven. Meong An from Daeyaksasa (Buddhism temple) delivered how he felt while participating in the WARP Office Comparison of Scriptures, saying “I had time to remember what I had forgotten through this WARP Office Comparison of Scriptures; the correct understanding of all the words in the Buddhism scripture that talk about peace. I think that HWPL is pursuing peace for the world religions, and the platform to lead this is the WARP Office Comparison of Scriptures.”

In addition, a WARP Office Comparison of Scriptures was held with the theme of “Religion and Peace.” A member of the audience in attendance during this discussion said, “For peace to be realized, the role of the religious leaders is opening their heart and comparing their scriptures through WARP Office Comparison of Scriptures held by HWPL. As a result, they can understand the authentic meaning of religion.” “Peace can be realized as one truth in all the Scriptures”.

HWPL World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Office, which was held in Daeyaksasa (Buddhism temple), will be used as a forum for various exchanges of many religious leaders who love peace, as well as WARP Office Comparison of Scriptures discussions, going forward.
