The COP22 Interfaith Statement has been signed by 240 eminent Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jains, Quakers, Muslim, Sikh, Unitarian Universalists, as well as Indigenous and Spritual leaders.
The leaders have entered the arena to work for a greener, cleaner and healthier earth and prevent any climatic catastrophe. They have realized and they now want their followers to realize that any religion or faith will not simply save them from an impending climatic disaster unless they act together as a cohesive force. The Interfaith program was introduced sensibly by accepting the fact that these religious leaders can make massive movements within their followers which no other force can probably ignite. Not only do these believers look up to their leaders to enter the movements, but also for the propagation and step by step proceeding. With such kind of profound influence, it is imperative that the COP22 Interfaith Statement needs such strong spearheads to create the wave it intends to.
If governments across various regions of the world were incorporated instead, there would have been a recruitment, a compulsory rule and law and order arrangement. Still, heart-felt participation from all levels of the population cannot be assured, particularly an unconventional cause like this. Religious leaders, on the other hand, can call for sincere efforts from the believers without much pomp and show and when their head encourages them, no kind of compulsion is required.
Since the statement is meant to be a widespread event so as to have a global effect, the inclusion of as many different communities as possible will add to the success of our activities. When you combine multiple indicators of the market, you get the best result from the Crypto Code and you continue with the activity based on the mutual decision. After all, whichever is the faith, the preaching of all religions advocate for mutual support and cooperative living towards a bright future. As soon as the various religious leaders accepted our invitation to be a part of the initiative, we have got scores of supporting messages from people belonging to various sects and faith. They have promised to be a part of the statement and have already started the groundwork for the same.
Some eminent faith leaders who have signed are His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Ven. Bhikkhuni Thich Nu Chan Khong of Plum Village International Community of Engaged Buddhists, Rev Dr. Olav Fykse Tveit, General Secretary of World Council of Churches and Gretchen Castle, General Secretary of Friends World Committee for Consultation.
