Reverend Dr. Sun Myung Moon (1920-2012)
Dr.Sun Myung Moon will be remembered passionately by the coming generations for his concerted efforts towards building a viable peace and harmony in the world.
He was, in fact, an angel of peace, family unity, and inter-faith dialogue who invented new traditions and ways to organize universal gatherings of diverse religions/faiths in the contemporary world within the forums of UNO and without for the sole purpose of learning the basic lessons of living together harmoniously and with compassion for one and all. Father Moon was not an armchair philosopher who philosophized idyllically in the realm of mere dreams and thoughts, but a karmayogi (a man of action) who firmly believed in practical actions now and here in the real world of our day-to-day existence.
Reverend Dr. Sun Myung Moon was no doubt one of the greatest spiritual leaders and champions of world peace in our times. He is affectionately known by millions of his followers and devotees as “Father Moon.” Father Moon attached his life-long goal of world peace and the permanent faith in loving God with the bounties of simple but inexplicable nature. He used to say, “If you empty your mind and receive nature into your entire being, there is no separation between you and nature. Nature comes into you, and you become completely one with nature. In the moment that the boundary between you and nature disappears, you feel a profound sense of joy. Then nature becomes you, and you become nature”. Father Moon was thoroughly convinced that “Everything around us was given birth through a combination of forces so complex we cannot even imagine it.
