Education for Peace and One World
by Irene Taafaki
Quotations from the sacred scriptures of the world, stories, questions and activities.
A universal spiritual thread runs through all the great world religions in their teachings on personal virtues which reflect the attributes of God. Thoughts reveals that single thread, coming from many sources.
Arranged under 64 themes such as Honesty, Generosity, Kindness and Respect for Others, each section contains
-- quotations from the scriptures of the world
-- stories illuminating each theme
-- questions and activities to stimulate teachers and students
One of our most popular titles, Thoughts was originally compiled for use in the New Era School at Panchgani, India as a response to the challenge of providing moral education suitable for students from a wide variety of national, religious and social backgrounds yet who are destined to become citizens of one world family.
Bahá'ís have found many uses for Thoughts, not only in their own homes and in Bahá'í schools but for presentation to local schools for use in assemblies, for local libraries, for use at World Religion Day and to present the theme of the unity of religion on many occasions.
