14 GHA CIHE Curricula are created: Invitation to approve them Dear GHA members, 

I’m pleased to inform you that 48 GHA members and friends have discussed 14

2. Prof. Celia Altschuler. Language, Art, and Love through Interfaith Harmony
3. Prof. Ayo Ayoola-Amale. Interfaith Harmony in Nigeria and Africa 
4. Dr. Uraz Baimuratov. Harmony of Society and Economy: Global Paradigm and 
Interfaith Harmony 
5. Julia Budnikova. Nicholas Roerich about Interfaith Harmony in Context of His 
Cultural Anthropological Conception 
6. Dr. Bruce Cook. Interfaith Harmony and Education against Religious 
7. Dr. Robert D. Crane. Compassionate Justice through the Harmony of Tawhid in 
8. Rev. Dr. Kurt Johnson. Interspiritual Integration and Holism for Interfaith 
Harmony in the 21st Century

Harmony in the 21st Century 
13. Dr. Laj Utreja. Interfaith Harmony – Science of the Vedic Culture of 
14. Dr. Rene Wadlow. History of Interfaith Movements 

Note: More than ten authors have promised to develop their curriculum in the 
next 2-3 months. We invite the CIHE new teachers with their curricula. This 
project is open to all who see the harmonious education as the main path to 
interfaith and social harmony.

I express my heartfelt thanks to all the authors and participants of this 
discussion. It was a challenging project with many corrections, editing, 
translations into two languages, and etc. It is now completed in the first 
approximation and we expect the number of curricula to increase. This project 
(25 pages) is presented to you in the attachment below and on the website:

We invite you to approve in ordinary manner this project by your PUBLIC (for 
all) YES or NO choice. Your silence will be accepted as YES. We need this 
three days, until April 13 inclusively. At one time, we invite you to make two 
choices from the list of 14 curricula: the strongest (worthy as a model for 
others) and the weakest (requiring radical treatment with your point of view) 
your YES or NO before their titles above and highlighting them in different 

The GHA New York CIHE International Curriculum, including the 14 authors’ 
curricula and its future expansion (doubling) is a key step in creating CIHE. 
Without this curriculum CIHE was just a dream and fantasy. Now it is possesses 
real spiritual, theoretical and educational base. As we develop the CIHE way we 
will encounter dozens of problems, which makes sense with the implementation of 
a curriculum, providing the ultimate goal - formation of interfaith harmony in 
the minds of the believers through harmonious education in CIHE.

GHA is now prepared to propose this project to various religious communities in 
various cities around the world. For example, in Jerusalem, for the formation 
a peaceful harmonious consciousness of Israelis and Palestinians, as well as in 
other countries with religious tensions. GHA is happy to offer this project to 
all Interfaith Centers in the world, as well as those faiths that come from 
interfaith harmony. For example, the Baha'i faith, with its magnificent centers 
in India (Lotus Temple) and in Israel could host their own versions of CIHE 
based on the project and inviting teachers from GHA. Similarly, Brahma Kumaris 
World University could provide CIHE to all its regional offices on the GHA 
project base. And so on.

This GHA project offers a deep spiritual and educational foundation for the UN 
Week of World Interfaith Harmony and paves the way for the initiation of the UN 
Decade of Interfaith Harmonious Education that for this time we hope to create 
about 10,000 such educational institutions (CIHE) worldwide.

The first CIHE in New York will be a model for them and the real beginning of 
the Age of Harmonious Enlightenment in the 21st century. Their true meaning and 
the ultimate goal is religious peace from harmonious consciousness of believers 
through harmonious education. This is a major spiritual step towards a 
harmonious civilization.

The next stage of CIHE creation in New York is decision of organizational 
questions, which are now in full competence of the CIHE Board.

Best harmony wishes,

Dr. Leo Semashko,
