In October 1947, Firuz Kazemzadeh spoke for the first time in Portland, Maine, World Peace Through World Religion. In December 1949, the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baháʼís of the United States was standardized across the United States to be held on January 15, 1950. The Day’s celebration began internationally, starting in two cities in Australia in 1950 and Bolivia in 1951. Later in 1958, the celebration launched in many countries.
In 1968, the Universal House of Justice, the elected council that serves as the head of the Baháʼí Faith, clarified in a message that the Day works as an observance of the need for the humankind. In April 2002, in a letter to the World’s Religious Leaders, the Universal House of Justice delivered a message: to participate meaningfully in curing the ills that bother hopeless humanity, must now address honestly.
Do Too Many Religions Exist in the World?
In His Sacred book, The”Gyan Ganga“ the only enlightened Saint on Earth, has described the one religion known as humankind. He denies the existence of any other religion.
Our Race is Living Being, Mankind is our religion.
Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, there is no separate religion.
Unnecessarily the people do follow several religions due to gross ignorance of real knowledge. The readers should read two sacred Books of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj, the “Gyan Ganga” and the “Way of Living,” to capture in-depth knowledge of the Eternal Truth and the myth prevailing in the society. The seekers should know from the Sacred Books how did the Universe originate? It is a true story of ‘Creation of Nature,’ but someone reading it might feel that it is baseless for the first time. However, it is the most authentic account with ample evidence from our Holy Scriptures.
What Is the Real Aim of Human Life?
Spiritual Leader Rampal Ji clearly says that the only aim of Human Life is Salvation. The salvation can be achieved by following the Sat-Bhakti as defined by Supreme God Kabir Sahib in the fifth Veda, the Sukshma Veda. This human life’s sole aim is entirely achievable in this very life by taking the Naam Diksha (Initiation) by the enlightened Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj.
It is mentioned in all holy scriptures of all faiths. The essence of all the scriptures is in taking Naam Diksha (Initiation) from an Enlightened Saint (He who has the three names and also the authority to give Naam), so that a seeker would get rid from birth and death cycles to attain salvation. The Sat-Bhakti bestower Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj is the only Satguru in the universe at present Who bestows the Naam Diksha (Initiation) to His disciples for salvation.

Is There Some Similarity in All Holy Books?
All holy books prove that “There is more than one God.” In the Holy Book Bible, “Abraham” was sitting under the trees of Mamre. He saw three gods. He supplied eatables, bowed down before them, and got blessed from them. It proves that three gods have been accepted in the Bible.
There are believes of “Chaar Yaari” who remain in child form in the Muslim religion. In Sukshm Veda, that is, enlightened knowledge (Speech of Kabir Sahib / Garib Das Ji) states –
Vahi sanak sanandana, Vahi chaar yaari|
Tatvgyan jaane bina, Bigdi baat saari||
Meaning: – In the Hindu religion, the Sanak, Sanandan, Sanatan, and Santkumar, who remain in child form, are Manas Putra (children) of Brahma Ji. In the Muslim religion, these only are known as “Chaar Yaari,” four children friends.
It also states in Sukshm Veda –
Vahi mohammad vahi mahadev, Vahi adam vahi brahma|
Das Garib doosra koyi nahin, Dekh aapne gharma||
Meaning: – The founder of the Muslim religion, Prophet Muhammad, was a virtuous soul who had come from the world of god Shiva. He is said to practice religious activity by sitting in a cave. One of the ganas (attendants) of Shiv Ji, one of the eleven Rudras, met Muhammad Ji in that cave. In Muhammad Ji’s language (Arabic language), he narrated Kaal God’s order, that is, Brahm, to him. Muslims compare Rudra with a noble angel Gabriel.
It means that Prophet Muhammad is a child of Shiva. The holy shrine of the Muslim religion, “Kaaba,” has a stone in god Shiva’s Ling shape. Reverent Muslims bow before it. The creation inside the body is similar to the human beings of all religions. In absence of Eternal knowledge, we are divided into several religions. Please read the details from this weblink.
