During my last foreign tour I (Sant Kirpal Singh) was asked on television in the United States, "How can peace be cemented?" I told them, "Peace can be cemented only when men rise above 'isms' and Presidents and Kings rise above countries." To remain in any "ism" is a blessing, if we keep in mind the ideal for which we have joined it and rise into universalism; but if we stick obdurately to the "ism," the result is again narrow-mindedness and selfishness. Similarly, if kings nourish their gardens well and keep them blooming in all respects, they should let all other countries bloom the same way and further the cause of human happiness; otherwise there will be conflicts and wars.
