World Interfaith Harmony Celebration, Melbourne, 2012
World Interfaith Harmony Week seeks to spread the message of harmony and tolerance among the followers of all the world’s religions, faiths and beliefs. It seeks to do this by promoting their common basis of “Love of God and Love of the Neighbor, or Love of the Good and Love of the Neighbor“. Its message includes everyone, excludes no one, and is purely voluntary.
