Abstract:    

All major religions in India essentially display a doctrine of peace. Human and environmental solidarity rooted in Dharma and Ahimsa is essence of Hindu doctrine of peace. “As rivers flow into the ocean but cannot make the vast ocean overflow, so flow the streams of the sense world into the sea of peace.”(Gita 2.70). Jainism stresses on conquering lower nature by practice of the five vows, benevolence towards all living beings, joy at the sight of the virtuous, compassion and sympathy for the afflicted, and tolerance towards the indolent and ill-behaved.” (Tattvarthasutra7.11). Buddhism answers affirmatively to the radical question: "can racial, ethnic and religious hatreds and prejudices among human beings be ended?" Hatred is learned. It must be our task to unlearn it. Common humanity that unites all is appreciated. Adi Granth of the Sikhs gives an ordinance to live in peace: “No one shall cause another pain or injury; All mankind shall live in peace together, under a shield of administrative benevolence.” Guru Nanak asserts: "Realisation of Truth is higher than all else. Higher still is truthful living". Sikh teaching emphasizes the principle of equality of all humans and rejects discrimination on the basis of caste, creed, and gender. Zoroastrianism rules out enmity. Mercy and Friendliness towards humans and every living being constitute compassion without which man cannot be perfect. For Judaism, the hope for and the pursuit of peace and the expectation of a universally peaceful time, are among its most basic tenets. “They shall beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more….” (Mic. 4:3-4; Isa. 2:4). Peace is essential to Christianity. Jesus is the ‘King of peace.’ Peacemakers are Children of God. The Christian doctrine of peace also is attached to the principles and values of justice, love, compassion and forgiveness. (St. John 14: 34-35). The term Islam means ‘in peace.’ To be a Muslim means to be one who has given completely in 'submission to God.’ For the Muslims, this complete submission to the Divine Will above the will of one’s own self is the best possible way to peace. "Peace to whoever follows the right guidance! To proceed; Submit yourself, and you shall be safe.'" (Tabari VIII: 104). According to Bahá'í faith, all nations and peoples must consider themselves brethren. ... They are the branches, leaves, flowers and fruits of One Tree. They are pearls from one shell." I may be commented that the reading of the doctrine of peace in religions should be placed along with the need to forget and forgo the religious burns buried in history.
