Without fear of contradiction, we must label acts like the recent bombings in Sri Lanka as barbarous – without any form of justification or redemption.  But, having said that, what can people of good will do to reduce such mindless slaughtering of people, simply because they have a different religious faith?  Obviously this is a difficult issue, but numbers of people who are solid religious practitioners or scholars have joined in the effort.  The result is our “Pro-Ject’ Understanding.”  We all know that religions and philosophies have differences among them, but we focus upon the many things that they all have in common.  So we have a website that posts fairly short essays about those commonalities, and forward them to other people and groups here and around the world, along with the request that they forward them on to their social network as well.  In this way we hope to smother the earth.

Here is the link: .  I think you will find the essays to be interesting, educational and helpful for all.  The problem is that getting these thoughts around the world, where they will do the most good, is difficult.  So I am requesting that we all harness the frustration that builds up when we hear about atrocities like these that occurred in Sri Lanka, and turn it into some constructive attempts to reduce them.  Please help us in this effort.
