Malaysian Interfaith

On behalf of the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation and the Malaysian Interfaith Network, we warmly welcome you to benefit from this unique interfaith project of Professor Hans Küng, chairman of the Global Ethic Foundation. This website introduces to you to the following religions and faiths:

Indigenous Spiritualities
Chinese Religion
Sikhism, and
Baha'i Faith.

In this website, you will also be informed about
– the Global Ethic concept,
– the importance of the Golden Rule principle,
– and six core ethical standards
which all religions and belief systems have in common:

1. Every human being must be treated humanely;
2. Treat others as you would like to be treated
2. (i.e. the so-called Golden Rule);
3. Have respect for life;
4. Deal honestly and fairly;
5. Speak and act truthfully; and
6. Respect and love one another, and be
6. responsible for your partner's happiness.

These are the six basic principles for a global ethic which was accepted by the Parliament of the World's Religions in 1993.

The aims of this website are to contribute –
to a better understanding, respect and appreciation
of the different world religions and faiths, and
to a better knowledge of the common moral values
and ethical standards which these religions share.

This website is just a "starter" – a small and necessarily incomplete introduction. In fact, this website should whet the appetite of the readers for more information and explanation about the fascinating world of religion and spirituality.

The major part of this website was created by Global Ethic Foundation in Tübingen (Germany).

For the purpose of showing this website in Malaysia, some modifications have been made and posters on Indigenous Spiritualities, Sikhism, the Baha'i Faith, the Global Ethic and the Golden Rule have been added by us in close cooperation with Malaysian religious experts and Prof. Hans Küng.

The original exhibition had been shown at the United Nations headquarters in New York, other international organisations and at many places all over the world.

The Konrad-Adenauer Foundation and the Malaysian Interfaith Network are honoured to show this unique website in Malaysia.
