Peace is literally the absence of war but can also mean a state of harmony in an individual person. The United Nations was formed in 1945 to promote international peace and security.

What is meant by Enlightenment?
The Buddha didn't use a word meaning "enlightenment" when he talked about the change that came to him under the Bodhi tree, the change that he taught could occur to anyone; he used a word that meant "Awake" and sometimes "liberation" or the word "nibbana" which makes reference to the cooling off/blowing out of a flame. The translation of these terms into the word "enlightenment" seems to have come from the vocabulary of westerners who lived in the Post-Enlightenment era (the 1800s). What...

Why do ladies always go first?
First of all girls are so much more intelligent and Sweet. We don't try to hurt anyone we try to bring people up. Girls are much more sweeter than guys:) Answer: In some countries the ladies go first when walking down a road as the landmines and IEDs may still be present. However in general this custom is a hold over from openly sexist Victorian and earlier "manners" where women were viewed as weaker than men and had to be given special care...
Asked in US Presidents, Peace
What presidents served in only peace time?
The US has had a lot of small conflicts that involved military action, but all presidents except for Madison, Polk, Lincoln, McKinley, Wilson, F. Roosevelt, Truman, Lyndon Johnson. G. H. W. Bush , George W. Bush and Obama either served only in peace time or had only brief periods when they called on the military for foreign or domestic disputes. I did not count Indian Wars which broke out from time to time but usually did not last long. So, you...

Why educate for peace?
Peace is the core of everything. I disagree, education is the core. It is education that defeats ignorance and it is ignorance that allows injustice. If you look at any repressive government you will find a system that is set up to restrict higher education or if not restrict it but to control the curriculum. History is important, to know what has happened is very important and if you rely on someone or something that has an interest in anything other than...

How do religions act as a tool to bring peace?
By bringing ignorance about the real world around them. To give people something to think is real so that they don't have to worry about finding something to do with their lives. If you don't actually have to worry about your life, and let ignorance take over, then you've found peace. ...

Sample of closing remarks?
Closing remarks are very similar to the concluding paragraph of an essay. I have included a good example - see related links. The opening paragraph introduces the topic. The closing remarks provide a concise summary of the points made in the talk. Frequently, in the closing remarks, is a statement of the next course of action. Some people use closing remarks to thanks sponsors and other researchers, but this can be done in the beginning of the talk. The closing remark may...

How do you solve world peace?
War. And we've always had it in one form or another. Rare and brief are periods when there is not some form of something at least on the level of a tribal feud where one or both groups of folks is/are killing members of the other group. World peace is not a problem to be solved. It is a goal to be sought. And it will never be found until it lives in the heart of every man, woman and child...

Asked in Peace
How do we find inner peace?
Answer Inner peace can only be achieved when we let go of anger, disappointments and regrets - all our negativity. All the while we harbor negative thoughts we let our gremlins chat away in our heads about how hard done by we are and how bad stuff only ever happens to us. When you let go of the bad feelings, forgiving others and yourself in order to do so you overcome those negative voices and are able to concentrate on the good things...
How do you maintain peace in the world?
Funamentally, there has NEVER been "peace" the world over. Conflicts have a huge variety of causes and methods, most of it rooted in the fundamental nature of humans to compete over limited resources, and to dream up ways to divide humanity into groups of "us" vs "them". The question is unanswerable, because we simply don't understand the reasons why conflict occurs in the first place well enough to say: if the conflict is caused by X, we do Y to stop it. Even...
