World Religions - Universal Peace - Global Ethic

This exhibition brochure introduces to you, in its first part, the following religions and faiths:

• Indigenous Spiritualities
• Hinduism
• Chinese Religion
• Buddhism
• Judaism
• Christianity
• Islam
• Sikhism, and
• Baha'i Faith.

In the second part of this exhibition brochure, the readers will be informed about
• the Global Ethic concept,
• the Golden Rule principle, and
• six core ethical standards which all religions and belief systems have in common:

1. Treat others as you would like to be treated (i.e. the so-called Golden Rule);
2. Every human being must be treated humanely;
3. Have respect for life;
4. Deal honestly and fairly;
5. Speak and act truthfully; and

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

Tracing the Way – spiritual dimensions of the world religions

A fascinating topic
What do we know of men and women of other faiths and their religions?

Why do we so often unthinkingly reject what is alien and unknown?

All religions have a dark side and a bright side; they contain traditions and visions; they are fascinating, and indeed beautiful. Hans Küng now makes it possible to experience this by examining the four-thousand-year history of the world religions for traces which help us to understand one another and bring us together more closely.

A unique project
Hans Küng, one of the outstanding theologians of our day, has set out to describe the spiritual substance of the world religions in an authoritative and vivid way, explaining them in a way which everyone can understand. He invites us to an exciting search for traces through every age and every continent.

Hans Küng describes, narrates and explains the whole spectrum of the religions. He divides the enormous amount of material into seven sections:

Indigenous Religions
Chinese Religion

In each of the seven parts, Hans Küng describes the development of the religion, points out connections with other religions and works out what divides the religions and what they have in common.
