Distinguished guests, scholars, and religious leaders from over 40 countries will meet in Singapore to pray for humanity’s peace and well-being.

“This is the first time we have organized such a cross-border, cross-religious, and cross-cultural event,” said Zhang Bu Sheng, President of the Chinese Cultural Promotion Society of Singapore. There will be 1,000 participants in person, including over 150 globally renowned scholars, religious representatives, cultural leaders, and entrepreneurs. Furthermore, approximately ten thousand people from around the world will be participating in this event online.”

Interfaith Conversations, Seeking Peace for Humanity

“The world situation is complex, and the purpose of organizing this forum is to pray for world peace and to keep people away from wars, poverty, and suffering.”

The event will bring together representatives from major religions from around the world, including Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity, Catholicism, Islam, Hinduism, Confucianism, and others. “In addition to representatives from the religious community, we also have scientists, educators, and scholars. There will be interaction and communication not only among different religions but also between religious and secular beliefs.”

“Singapore has always supported and respected ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity, which is why we chose to host the first forum here. Binary oppositions cause global instability, and our goal is to promote a unified civilization. Humanity is a whole, and we should embrace, respect, and love one another as we work together to save the planet, humanity, and the global family. By transcending black-and-white boundaries and frameworks, we can each express our own beauty, achieving the magnificent realm of a unified civilization.”
