1.        Many are working today for the promotion of World Peace without having Peace in themselves. Loud propaganda, big talk and lectures cause more confusion, conflict and discord.
2.    A proper understanding of the essential unity of religions is the most effective and powerful factor in bringing about Peace in this world. This understanding will remove all superficial differences and conflicts that create restlessness, discord and quarrels.
3.    If everyone turns to the supreme Peace within, there will be Peace everywhere. A glorious new era of Peace, amity, love and prosperity can be ushered in only if the youth of the day is educated in the methods of self-culture. Educate the moral conscience of the public. This will bring lasting World Peace.
4.    You can elevate others only if you have elevated yourself. This world can be saved only by those who have already saved themselves. A prisoner cannot liberate other prisoners. One realized sage can do more for the promotion of Peace than a thousand missionaries preaching and disputing, day in and day out.
5.    There will be no war if all people practice truthfulness, universal love, purity, mercy, contentment, self-sacrifice, self-restraint and tolerance. Ahimsa (Non-violence) is the key to Peace.
6.    Peace is the happy, natural state of humanity. It is the birthright. War is dis-grace.
7.    Peace is a state of quiet. It is freedom from disturbance, anxiety, agitation, riot or violence. It is harmony, silence, calm, repose, rest. Specifically, Peace is the absence or cessation of war.
8.    All over the world, great conferences are held for bringing about universal Peace, universal brotherhood, and universal religion. It is the vanity of humanity that goads to reform society without first reforming oneself. Vanity rules the current world. When two vain people meet, there is friction and quarrel. In the case of social reform, self-styled enlightened men started interfering with the customs and manners of people, in an effort to civilize them. The people lost their old moorings and the reformers could not offer new, sound ones. Masses of people drifted away into chaos.
