Interview with Dr. Harbhajan Singh, Unity of Man Conference February…
Unity of Man
We are children of God, born the same way, with the same privileges from God. Soul being of the same essence as that of God, we are all brothers and sisters in God; and the same One Power whom we worship is called by different names.
Sant Kirpal Singh
Unity of Man refers to this inner, inherent unity of humanity.
Located in northern India, Kirpal Sagar embodies the ideals of Unity of Man. The project not only promotes the physical and intellectual development of man, but also the spiritual pursuit of higher virtues and right understanding which belies the national, religious or social differences between us.
People there share an openness and peaceful cooperation between religions in recognition of humanity’s inherent unity. The project focuses on the commonalities religions share the symbols of which stand prominently on top of the central building as an emblem of unity between man and God. As God resides in each one of our hearts, equal respect is given to all religions. Communion with God takes place within us as man is the “true temple of God”.
The project’s social facilities and charitable activities help people to stand on their own feet in many practical ways. As economic progress has barely reached the rural areas, this service is much needed.
Unity of Man organises lectures and conferences on a variety of spiritual topics to promote religious tolerance, ethical lifestyle, and greater unity. Established in several countries, centres are open to anyone, all activities are free of charge.
