We believe and see world as 'One Family under God' though it is simple but transcendent
for the human community, yet the sobering realities of extremist violence,
ethnic conflict, and poverty in many parts of the world reminds us that it
remains a distant goal.
But it is not an impossible goal. Shantisthanam foundation is working and spreading a word with creativity education; working to transcend
religious and ethnic divisions in regions of conflict; promoting environmental sustainability; building models
of community-based development; and promoting
transnational service learning as living approaches the ideal of One Family under God.
We have a team of Peace builders which is increasing day by day, a team of local heroes who are saving lives helping people escape sudden calamity, communal riots, wars, conflicts etc. .
Global Collaboration in Peace Building & removing conflicts
Most people understand and discover meaning in life through various spiritual paths. While there may be great differences in religious doctrines and liturgies, how one lives every day is a measure of how those beliefs have taken root in one’s character.
Basic human values—respect and compassion for all people, honoring the family, living with integrity—are vitally important to people of all faiths and backgrounds. Thus it is essential that faith leaders stand together and publically affirm the shared principles and values that faith traditions individually advocate.
Addressing the most critical problems facing humanity, including conflict and extreme poverty, requires fundamental change in heart and spirit. Faith leadership, which appeals to the highest ideals and aspirations of human beings, is needed to help bring about such change.
Because faith traditions address the larger questions of life—who we are and how we should live—religious identities are often more fundamental than nationality or ethnicity.
Recognizing that many conflicts are attributed to religious causes, people of faith must show by example that they can transcend differences based on our common heritage and shared values as One Family under God..
We believe that the most fundamental human problems cannot be solved by politics,
diplomacy, economics, or even science alone. We need to work together towards effective solutions that
address the root causes of conflict and corruption. Conflicts of religious beliefs is the major confusion
that human on this earth faces. We thereby continuously study and
research on religion beliefs and conflicts and now strive to solve these issues by addressing masses. .
The old paradigm of life-controlling and mind-manipulating belief systems has left many to
finally realize they have been living in an artificial reality created by egotistical people on power trips. This has
led to a situation where many are wandering, trying to find their own way in a world without many true leaders, and as a result of this, a new market has developed
which attempts to showcase answers to those people who have become disillusioned with the old dogmatic systems. .
The family is the school of love and virtue in which the character and heart of each individual is
formed at the deepest level.
The ideal institution for teaching and learning values is a healthy family headed by a father and mother. .
The family is meant to be the most intimate environment in which every child comes to know his or her
intrinsic value through the unconditional love of parents.
The vital relationships in the extended family help to shape the child’s larger sense of identity through imparting
the essence of culture and tradition.
Relations within the family, between husband and wife, parents and children, and among siblings are instrumental for
developing the virtues that underlie all positive social relations.
People learn to relate with all of humanity in the extended family.
Future citizens with clear ethical values and an active sense of social responsibility are cultivated within strong
families and vibrant communities. From the immediate family to the extended family model, and carrying forth to the entire human family, family is at the heart of One Family under God..
