December 6, 2014, IRVINE, Calif. – Religious leaders from eight different faiths gathered before an audience of 200 University of California, Irvine students for the Alliance of Religions: Dialogue of the Holy Scriptures conference, hosted by international non-profit organization Heavenly Culture, World Peace and Restoration of Light (HWPL). This December meeting was especially notable as the Chairman of HWPL Mr. Man Lee traveling from South Korea, was able to attend as a keynote speaker.

The program featured a panel of nine distinct religious leaders from across the nation who gathered to progress HWPL’s Office of the Alliance of Religions initiative, wherein religious dignitaries regularly convene to examine teachings of peace within their respective scriptures.

Speaking at the discussion were prominent religious figures including Bhai Sahib Satpal Singh Khalsa representing the Sikh Dharma of the Western Hemisphere, Bishop Ray Moten representing Christianity, Mr. Waqas Syed of the Islamic Circle of North America, Reverend Hum Dac Bui and Reverend Hong Dang Bui representing Cao Daism, Swami Adriishananda representing Hinduism, Abbot Sokhoeut Phan of the Khmer Buddhist Association, Dr. Patrick Q. Mason representing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and finally, Mr. Murad Ismael representing the Yazidi faith, whose religion is victimized at large by The Islamic State in the Middle East.

“Thousands of Yazidi are fleeing from their homes, being persecuted for their faith. An organization like HWPL is a very important step for peace. We need to continue this dialogue to ensure that the human race will be peace” said Ismael

Chairman of HWPL, Peace Advocate Mr. Man Lee, concluded the dialogue with a keynote speech urging leaders to pursue the truth in order to establish a peaceful world. Over the course of the past two years, the 84-year-old Korean War veteran has traveled on 16 world tours, visiting 74 countries to speak with religious leaders, heads of state, youth and non-profit organizations to guide the campaign for a unity of religions and an unprecedented international law for the absolute cessation of war. Most recently, Chairman Lee traveled to Romania, where 24 current and former presidents unanimously agreed to work alongside HWPL for the drafting of an international law.

The program concluded in an alliance of religions as leaders all raised their hands, expressing their commitment and pledging to press forward together in unity for the cessation of war. “Regardless of whether you're religious or not, let's join together. In the Office of the Alliance of Religions we really need to study each other’s scriptures to see whose can really protect our lives and create a world of peace,” said Chairman Lee.
