How can the MWR make an even greater contribution to society? This is something we need to thoroughly consider and work towards. The key challenge of the MWR has always been how to translate ideals into reality. This has resulted in the creation of a unique institution which many would like to replicate, but so far have been unable to do so. This is mainly due to a big difference in people’s attitudes and ways of doing things. Actually, the unique conditions existing in Taiwan are what has made it possible to establish such a rare institution—an embodiment of love and peace.
Having established the MWR, we can continue sowing the seeds of peace in an ever-widening field by setting up a university of religion and other schools. This is a way of facilitating closer interaction with people from Taiwan and elsewhere. For it is through such interaction that people of different religious persuasions become inclined to work together to achieve common goals.
Many of the MWR’s ardent supporters have become involved through individual invitations over the years, and now strongly identify with its ideals. Establishing such a museum is rather like giving birth to and raising a child so that the child will eventually grow up and find her own course in life. I strongly believe that modern society is in sore need of the spiritual values enshrined in the MWR. It is thanks to the unstinting efforts of the staff and volunteers that the MWR has finally reached maturity.
