World Religion Day

World Religion Day

There are hundreds of countries in the world, with thousands of cultures dating back to pre-history. Throughout that time, many religions have risen to prominence. World Religion Day allows you to share your culture and learn from others, regardless of whether you are Hindu, Jewish Catholic, Shinto or Buddhist.

World Religion Day was established in Portland, Maine in 1947 under the title “World Peace Through World Religion.” Since then, the day has been celebrated at many locations around the globe with prominent authors, educators, philosophers, and others speaking on the importance of World Religions.

Sri Lanka released a postage stamp in honor of World Religion Day. Another was issued by the Republic of Congo. This holiday aims to increase awareness of the many religions that exist in the world and encourage tolerance and understanding among people of all faiths.

World Religion Day can be observed easily. All you have to do is take the time to learn about the faiths in the world and keep an open mind. World Religion Day is not about conversion. It’s about understanding the religions that influence the world and learning more about them.

You can take some time to discuss religion, learn from others, and perhaps do some research on your culture to find out more about the foundational religions. World Religion Day offers the chance to expand your horizons.

This includes speaking to others about your faith, but keep in mind that World Religion Day does not promote conversion. Openly and honestly share your religion with another person. Then, listen and learn from them.
