The Peace Pilgrim's Pledge To Live Loving-Kindness and Compassion
The journey of life is a pilgrimage;
Beautiful qualities are a compass.
Intending to advance peace and harmony in our personal lives and in the world, we affirm the following:
We commit to treat all lives with loving-kindness and compassion.
We reject the distortions of religious, national and racial prejudice, which are used to violate the Golden Rule to treat others as we wish to be treated.
We respect the diversity of ways people pursue their individual destinies.
We challenge the misuse of beliefs, rites, rituals, practices, philosophies, and traditions used to degrade anyone, or which lead to violence.
We affirm the necessity of bringing loving-kindness and compassion into action.
Through such actions we seek to improve the relationships of people – one nation to another, one religion to another, one belief system to another, one gender to another, and one race to another.
We call upon all people of good will to join this pledge:
We pledge that in all we intend, think, and do, we shall strive to bring loving-kindness and compassion into action and into the lives of all we meet.
This pledge was created by a group of spiritual leaders from the Parliament of World Religions at the Universal Sufi Council Pilgrimage in Delhi, India, February 2017
