Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing inspiration, quotes and religious resources. This Home Page is changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You are warmly
invited to read every quote posted for each theme, or simply to read those that interest you. They are
offered in the belief that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and that finding the commonality
in religions is more important than pointing up the differences. Religion is precious gift that blesses the
individual and uplifts the community. However you worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. Let
us meet regularly and build a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.

Every one of us needs a home. The world needs a home.
There are so many young people who are homeless. They
may have a building to live in, but they are homeless in their
hearts. That is why the most important practice of our time is
to give each person a home. Be a home for them. Each of us
has to serve as the home for others. When we look at some-
thing or someone, be it a person, a tree, or anything, look at
it in such a way that we touch them as part of our home.

Thich Nhat Hanh (1926 -   )
Excerpted from "Going Home"

Riverhead Books, 1999


We pray to God to eradicate all the misery in the world;
that understanding triumphs over ignorance, that generosity
triumphs over indifference, that trust triumphs over contempt,
and that truth triumphs over falsehood.

Zoroastrian prayer
Source: The Peace Abbey

Send Thy peace O Lord,
which is perfect and everlasting,
that our souls may radiate peace.

Send Thy peace O Lord,
that we may think, act and speak harmoniously.

Send Thy peace, O Lord,
that we may be contented and thankful for Thy bountiful gifts.

Send Thy peace O Lord,
that amidst our worldly strife, we may enjoy Thy bliss.

Send Thy peace O Lord,
that we may endure all, tolerate all,
in the thought of Thy grace and mercy.

Send Thy peace O Lord,
that our lives may become a Divine vision
and in Thy light, all darkness may vanish.

Send Thy peace O Lord,
our Father and Mother,
that we Thy children on Earth may all unite in one family.

Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882-1927)
Founder of Universal Sufism and the Sufi Order International

And now, the Last Word:

If we want a love message to be heard,
it has to be sent out. To keep a lamp
burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)
Founder of the Missionaries of Charity in India






























Bonus quote:

Music is well said to be the speech of angels.

Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)
Scottish historian
