Light of Unity

On Sunday, the 21st of January, many celebrations were held around the world, in communities large and small, on the occasion of World Religion Day.

World Religion Day was initiated in 1950 by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States to 'address the need for religious unity', as they state on their web site.

Most of the celebrations, are organized around the world at the grass root level, which is wonderful. Imagine how much more wonderful it would be if countries and world leaders of religion (specially the big shots), would make a larger effort in calling for such unity.

This year, a couple of countries commemorated the occasion with postal stamps.

"So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth."
