WORLD RELIGIONS
Top
  1. BUDDHISM: A PORTRAIT
    Buddhism as we know it commenced in Northeast India about 500 BC through the teaching of Prince Siddartha Gautama, often known subsequent to his experience of "enlightenment" as Sakyamuni.
  2. CHRISTIANITY
    The origin of Christianity begins in the heart of God. The Divine nature is Love. Love is not something that comes from God. Love is God and God is love. If a Christian were to name the Divine in English, the best term would be simply "God-Love."
  3. FIRST PEOPLES AND NATIVE TRADITIONS
    First peoples see existence as a living blend of spirits, nature and people. All are one, inseparable and interdependent -- a holistic vision shared with mystics throughout the ages.
  4. HINDUISM: A PORTRAIT
    Hinduism is the oldest and perhaps the most complex of all the living, historical world religions. It encompasses an entire civilization and way of life, whose roots date back prior to 3000 BCE.
  5. ISLAM: A PORTRAIT
    The term "Islam" derives from the root letters "s.l.m." ("Ar. Sin, Lam, Mim") which means "to be in peace," "to be secure" and "to be integral, whole." Hence, Islam means one's conscious submission to the Will, Law, and Guidance of Allah.
  6. JUDAISM: A PORTRAIT
    The religion of the people Israel was and is the loving and faithful Covenant devotion to one God who revealed Divine Teaching through the mothers and fathers of the people of Israel (the Patriarchs and Matriarchs).
  7. TAOISM: A PORTRAIT
    Taoism believes "Tao" to be the cosmic, mysterious, and ultimate principle underlying form, substance, being, and change. Tao encompasses everything. It can be used to understand the universe and nature as well as the human body.
  8. THE ARCANE SCHOOL
    The purpose of the esoteric training given in the Arcane School is to help the student grow spiritually toward acceptance of discipleship responsibility and to serve the Plan of the spiritual hierarchy by serving humanity.
  9. THE BAHA'I FAITH
    The Baha'i Faith is an independent world religion now in the 150th year of its existence. It is the second most widely spread religion in the world, with five million members residing in 232 countries.
  10. WICCA: A PORTRAIT
    Wicca is a vital, contemporary spiritual path reviving the ancient, pre-Christian indigenous religion of Europe. It is a life-affirming Earth religion which is both old and new, "traditional," and vibrantly creative.

WORLD SCRIPTURE
Top
  1. INTRODUCTION
    We live in an ecumenical age. The progress in transportation and communication that has brought all the peoples of the world into one global village has also brought the religions of the world into close contact.
  2. INVOCATION
    We open with representative prayers, taken from the scriptures of the world's religions. They invoke, give thanks, and affirm the efficacious influence of Absolute Reality in human life.
  3. PRAYER
    The passages here discuss the efficacy of prayer and give guidance on how to pray. There are general exhortations to prayer, with the promises that God indeed hears and heeds prayers and that prayer restrains one from evil.
  4. PURITY
    Purity is the counterpart to sincerity. It is prized and sought after in every religion as the foundation for proper action. The religions of China and Japan emphasize that even before exerting effort, a person should purify his or her heart.
  5. THE DECALOGUE
    The moral outlooks of most religions are quite similar. Just as the Decalogue, or Ten Commandments, is the basis of Jewish and Christian ethical values, similar lists of ethical principles may be found in the scriptures of most religions.
  6. THE GOLDEN RULE
    The Golden Rule or the ethic of reciprocity is found in the scriptures of nearly every religion. It is often regarded as the most concise and general principle of ethics.
  7. THE NAME OF GOD
    Praising or chanting the name of God is a special form of prayer. In many religions, the excellence of chanting the name(s) of God lies in the mystic syllables which invoke God's purity and sovereign power.
  8. THE TRUTH IN MANY PATHS
    This section gathers passages from various scriptures which affirm that others who do not share the faith of that scripture are also following the way of Truth.
  9. TOLERANCE AND RESPECT FOR ALL BELIEVERS
    Herein is included the famous parable, found in many sources, of the blind men and the elephant. It teaches the folly of regarding any single religious perspective as absolute and complete.
  10. WORLD SCRIPTURE - HOME PAGE AND CONTENTS
    The UCS World Scripture archive contains the complete text of the 917-page hardbound book, including 4000 scriptural passages from 260 spiritual traditions arranged in 165 themes "common to all religions".
  11. WORLD SCRIPTURE AND EDUCATION FOR PEACE
    Introduction to the methods of World Scripture, and the vision of a common understanding of interspiritual values
