Pourquoi la FPU a-t-elle été fondée ?


La Fédération pour la paix universelle (FPU) est une alliance internationale de personnes et d’organisations résolues à bâtir un monde de paix,
où chacun pourra vivre libre, dans une coopération harmonieuse avec les autres, et où la prospérité sera équitablement partagée.


  • Le renouveau des Nations unies
  • Des partenariats entre les gouvernements, les religions et la société civile pour stimuler un développement qui s’appuie sur des valeurs universelles
  • Une culture de la paix par l’éducation, les sports, les arts, la presse et le bénévolat
  • Un cadre pour la cooperation entre les religions
  • La prévention et la résolution des conflits
  • Une vie de famille solide et chaleureuse comme contribution personnelle à la paix
  • L’éducation du caractère tout au long de la vie
  • L’humanité : une famille unie en Dieu (One Family Under God™)


Dépliant sur la FPU

Doter les Nations unies d’un conseil interreligieux : l’idée paraissait incongrue voilà quelques années. Pourquoi donc associer les puissances spirituelles aux États pour rechercher la paix ? Or l’actualité montre bien qu’il ne s’agit pas d’un gadget.

J’ai un grand espoir pour le Paraguay et pour toute l’Amérique latine. Je trouve dans ce pays un élan encourageant pour définir une nouvelle frontière, en finir avec les vieilles pratiques, et ouvrir une nouvelle page : je sens que si l’hémisphère occidental peut s’unir, il montrera au monde un modèle d’égalité, de liberté et de dignité qui viennent de notre Père céleste éternel.

Au cœur de la « voie du thé », il y a « l’esprit de paix ». L’esprit et l’enseignement de la voie du thé se résument dans les quatre caractères chinois :

La FPU a un schéma directeur pour construire la paix : c’est de mettre ensemble les deux parties en conflit pour les inciter à poser des actes réels et concrets de réconciliation.
