34. In the forty-sixth year of the Won-Buddhist Era, fourth month (1961), the Master proclaimed the Ethics of Threefold Unity: “The Ethics of Threefold Unity is a principle that elucidates three relationships of grand unity that will engender the great harmony of the human race throughout the world in the future. It is the fundamental principle whereby our human race will escape from the boundaries of prejudices and partialities and establish a single grand household, a single grand family, and a single grand home, working and rejoicing together in a single world of peace and comfort. Observing the great fortune of our present age, where human intellect has advanced and boundaries have steadily expanded, we can surmise that the moment has now arrived when the energy of grand unification is to pervade the world, which is a great opportunity for all nations and peoples to collaborate in constructing this single world. Before long, people around the world will together rejoice and honor this spirit of the Ethics of Threefold Unity, will work hard to master it, will establish organs for putting this spirit into practice together, and will perforce build a grand paradise by working to spread this spirit widely throughout the world. Therefore, we who have come across such an Order early on during such a fortunate period must renew our minds daily and monthly. I earnestly beseech all of you to serve as the vanguard in constructing this wonderful world by continuing in this practice and enterprise with ever greater zeal.”
