Hello Longfellow, I read both the ipw and hra websites using their English translations.
Can you speak Arabic or Persian?

That is what I see happening.

The world events are fully reflecting both the promise of a United Future and the destruction of an old dysfunctional Old World Order.

View attachment 3039

So when will we get there, the Baha'i Universal House of Justice offered this in the 1985 Peace Message.

"Whether peace is to be reached only after unimaginable horrors precipitated by humanity’s stubborn clinging to old patterns of behaviour, or is to be embraced now by an act of consultative will, is the choice before all who inhabit the earth. At this critical juncture when the intractable problems confronting nations have been fused into one common concern for the whole world, failure to stem the tide of conflict and disorder would be unconscionably irresponsible."

It has been foretold that for peace to become established, it will need this event to unfold.

"The time must come when the imperative necessity for the holding of a vast, an all-embracing assemblage of men will be universally realized. The rulers and kings of the earth must needs attend it, and, participating in its deliberations, must consider such ways and means as will lay the foundations of the world's Great Peace amongst men. Such a peace demandeth that the Great Powers should resolve, for the sake of the tranquillity of the peoples of the earth, to be fully reconciled among themselves. Should any king take up arms against another, all should unitedly arise and prevent him. If this be done, the nations of the world will no longer require any armaments, except for the purpose of preserving the security of their realms and of maintaining internal order within their territories. This will ensure the peace and composure of every people, government and nation."

Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 248

That will reflect what is offered in this passage.

"The time has come when all mankind shall be united, when all races shall be loyal to one fatherland, all religions become one religion, and racial and religious bias pass away. It is a day in which the oneness of humankind shall uplift its standard and international peace, like the true morning, flood the world with its light." – Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 153.

The world events are giving credence to this statement.

"Unification of the whole of mankind is the hall-mark of the stage which human society is now approaching. Unity of family, of tribe, of city-state, and nation have been successively attempted and fully established. World unity is the goal towards which a harassed humanity is striving. Nation-building has come to an end. The anarchy inherent in state sovereignty is moving towards a climax. A world, growing to maturity, must abandon this fetish, recognize the oneness and wholeness of human relationships, and establish once for all the machinery that can best incarnate this fundamental principle of its life. – Shoghi Effendi, The World Order of Baha’u’llah, p. 202.

Does your path or faith offer such a vision of a path to peace in this age?

If so, please share.

Regards Tony

Yes we share. We are working for the world peace by uniting all the religions in this world. This is established by correctly correlating the various scriptures of the world by right interpretation. Through this program we want to unite all the religions through logical analysis of all the scriptures in this world. Due to ignorance people do sinful activities and the world peace is crumbled. When the right divine knowledge is given then such wrong actions can be avoided by the individuals. The wrong ideas in the brain will be replaced by right ideas through divine knowledge. When this is established the actions of individual will be turned towards right path.

How will you do that. It is not the question of finding the lowest common denominator. It is what those who established the religions said. What Jesus, Mohammad, Bahaollah, Buddha said or what their followers claim to have been said is completely different.

The effort of Lord Dattatreya through this human body is to bring about unity among the various religions and sects in Hinduism in India and also to bring about a unity among various religions in the world. Thus the effort of the present human incarnation is to establish Universal Spirituality at the national as well as the international level. The unity among world religions will be a broader reflection of the unity among the different sects of Hinduism. The concept of Universal Spirituality aims to stop all the communal and religion-based wars in the world.
Please let me reply to just one paragraph from your post.
Do you think that Lord Dattatreya could end the Invasion of Ukraine by President Putin of Russia? If so, how?

My neighbours are squabbling over parking spaces on communal ground by their homes. How would Lord Dattatreya's guidance end this struggle?

How can Lord Dattratreya solve the the situation of Israel clearing Muslims out of homesteads after living in them for so long?

Thus, this theoretical concept, if interpreted properly, has lot of practical application to achieve everlasting peace in the world. If world peace is disturbed, the peace of the individual is also lost. When individual peace is lost, the individual spiritual effort, which involves the sacrifice of work and fruit of work, is also disturbed. The individual is unable to follow the spiritual path and cannot achieve the grace of God. The secret of the individual spiritual effort lies in the practical sacrifice of the westerners. The secret of peace in the world, which is required for the individual spiritual effort, lies with Indians. Both are essential and are mutual. Thus the exchange is very much helpful for all. The West must learn from the East regarding world peace. The East must learn from the West about the real practical spiritual effort of an individual. No one should be egotistic in claiming that he is perfect in all aspects or that there is no need of learning anything from others. Those who make such egotistic claims go further and insult other religions. God is not pleased with such rigid and conservative followers. In fact, God gets furious with them and punishes them severely.

God, who is the Father of all human beings in this world, wishes that every human being should reach the ultimate spiritual goal because every human being is His own child. All human beings are brothers and sisters and must help each other by such mutual exchanges in the spiritual pursuit. They should exchange their gems with each other and should throw away their useless stones. The useless stones are the misinterpretations, which were made by selfish preachers, and which were handed down to them over the generations.

God incarnates in human form on earth in every human generation. The human media into which God Datta enters each time is different as a result of the plurality that is inherent in the imaginable domain. In other words, one Incarnation looks different from another Incarnation. One Incarnation may appear in a place where people follow say Hinduism, while another Incarnation may appear in a place where people follow a different religion. The Incarnation’s external dress, language, and manners will naturally be according to the culture of the place where He has appeared. This enables Him to mix freely with the people He has come to preach and uplift. But these differences are only external.

From the point of view of the first Energetic Incarnation, Datta or Father of heaven, present in each of them, all Incarnations are one and same. From the point of view of the unimaginable God present in all the Incarnations too, they are one and the same. Thus, all these different mediated Gods are actually one in essence. If you look at the medium, which is part of the imaginable domain, there is plurality. If you look at the internal God Datta or the unimaginable God present in all of them, then there is only one. This truth applies equally to the sub-religions within Hinduism or the different world religions. This analysis is the fundamental basis for bringing unity among the sub-religions of Hinduism and among the various religions in the world.

The issue is trying to unite all the religions under one banner, as if one über-religion were possible, as if there is an ur-religion that can be recovered ... both are category errors.

If one argues that all religions flow from the same source, then at source they are one, but that source is transcendent. Here, in this domain, no religion is the source, it reveals the source, indeed reveals aspects of the source to a greater or lesser degree, shaped by contingency.

This is established by correctly correlating the various scriptures of the world by right interpretation.
Again, a category error. You cannot work your way back to a lowest-common-denominator religion, without dumping elements that are intrinsic and vital to the particular religions. In the end that'll lead to a humanist, agnostic, kind of religion.

Through this program we want to unite all the religions through logical analysis of all the scriptures in this world.
No, you really don't. You tell me that where my text differs from yours, mine is ill-informed, or corrupted. So what you actually mean is, you want to bring all religions into line with yours.

When the right divine knowledge is given then such wrong actions can be avoided by the individuals.
Utter nonsense.

We have that knowledge – it's universal: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

That is a message that ensures right-everything, without necessarily bringing God into the equation at all.

No religion can disagree with it. No-one can logically, rationally, reasonably, disagree with it.

No-one can be offended by it.

Yet the world chooses not to follow it.

I think that people can, and often do. I'm thinking that what they can not do is escape the psychological consequences of denouncing and despising other people for doing or not doing things that they do or don't do, themselves, no matter how much they try to fool themselves about it.

Badger, Dattatreya is a revered sage in Hindu mythology, and many in reverence, consider him to be a God, just as VedaVyasa, Sankara or Ramana Maharshi are also considered avataras of Gods. Dattatreya is suppose to be the author of Avadhuta Gita, or the "Song of the free". That is a very important book for us on the principles of Advaita Vedanta, one of the sub-schools of Hindu philosophy. Several Hindu monastic and yoga traditions are linked to Dattatreya (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dattatreya#Dattatreya_traditions). He is not around to do what you mention in your post.

Sage Dattatreya is always depicted with his dogs.
