Feedback concerning the project UNITHEUM


"When we view different religions as essentially instruments to develop a good heart - love
and respect for others, a true sense of community - we can appreciate what they have in common.
Therefore, I welcome the establishment of UNITHEUM as a centre that will give expression
to the essential unity of purpose of all religions and faiths, while encouraging appreciation
for the beauty and richness of religious diversity. It is by taking such practical steps that we can
actually make our world a happier, more peaceful
and more harmonious place for all humankind".

Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Dharamsala/India, May 19, 2004,

Curriculum vitae


"As soon as one decide upon no longer emphasize the separating matters but the uniting ones instead, life begins to flow freely, because life means coming together. At those times when confidence-building measures are concerned above all, projects like the UNITHEUM are most urgent - for many people a resting-pole of remembering the pristine values of humane existence".

                              DOHA
A wish for to reduce negativity

We are obliged to take care for and to protect this world,
the place that we humans call our home.
Thus why should we destroy any source of prosperity
of our world without any reason?

May the truth of all Buddhas of the ten directions help
to end off all such confused actions.
May the attitude of Love and Compassion increase
and spread abroad over the whole world.

"If Allâh willed, He would have made you one nation,
but that He may test you in what He has given you;
so strive as in a race in good deeds.
The return of you all is to Allâh;
then He will inform you about that in which you used to differ.

"We think, the UNITHEUM may become a place, where people with different religious backgrounds may become acquainted with each other and they may "vie one with another towards all that is good". Il am pleased at every endeavour, to create a room, a place, where we may adore, praise and implore the Lord of the Worlds side by side, mutual - where we could have time in order to have a premonition and feeling for the unity of the Creation.

May ,,the House" will become material soon and will be benedicted - inscha'ALLAH."

"The Creator is One.
Like the Colours of the Rainbow
The Religions of this Planet
Are Wavebands of Colours of the Souls
Of all the People".

"May BLESSINGS of AHURA MAZDA always be showered on all of you good souls working devotedly at Unitheum.

With all my heart I write these lines of recommendation. You have woven a beautiful tapestry, with vibrant colours flowing harmoniously & express the universal truth.

All souls are born on Planet Earth with One Aim – One Mission – One Goal to accomplish and this is to unite with the pure white Light of the Creator. How? By obedience of His Cosmic Law. From time to time The Creator of the Universe sends His Obedient Holy Souls to spread His Cosmic Wisdom, to souls of all colours of the Rainbow, to live in Peace & Harmony.

For this purpose the UNITHEUM is important for the progress of attaining Peace, Goodwill, and Better Understanding amongst the people of different Religions of the world.

Be Happy. Make others Happy. Happiness is to him/her who gives Happiness unto others".

"The arches and spires of medieval cathedrals still bear impressive witness to the faith and courage of the communities that built them. May the UNITHEUM bear a similar witness for our time: May we have faith in what unites us and courage to work for that unity-in-diversity on which true peace is built.
Many blessings for your fine work, your brother David".

"By the crisis of human values which can be watched globally, a return to religion takes place as an element of establishing meaningfulness. It is part to the essence of every religion to claim the absolute. This forces us to think about how people of religions with different views of life can live together in peace. Consequently, beyond the absolute in religious sphere, there exists a duty towards peace to unfold patterns of religious pluralism and to work for their acceptance by all religions. There is no such thing as a world ethics, for each religion has it's own ethics. But it must be possible by encounter and dialogue to come to an agreement on ideals and symbols of a world peace based on religious pluralism".

"Of course I approve of the aims of your association as you stated them in par. 2,1 (of the statutes). The problem arises as to the realization in par. 2,2: However much as one and all would wish to have such a building, nevertheless it seems unrealistic to me to collect the necessary millions of money for it. From my own experience I know how difficult this is. In addition, some of the potential donators will have problems with 'common universal worships' interpreting these as syncretism. This needs not be so, but still it has to be taken into account".

Prof. Dr. Hans Kueng, 'ecumenical theologian', President of the World Ethics foundation, March 14, 2002


Question: Which geographical location would you advice for the building of the UNITHEUM?

"Your purpose is marvellous and the architect Thurn-Valsassina is ideal for its realisation.
For my sense one can find the supreme at any place. It es only important how to handle the place
in a right geomantical manner.

I hope for the success of your intention and I would like to help you if it will be possible for me
to take out time. With my best regards!“

"There is a great need of understanding and 'uni-fication' between the religions especially because of the religious conflicts, which are ruling the course of events in the world at this time. A room and a ritual which are open to the devotees of all religions may create a spiritual union which can be lived and experienced with all senses which is often only being implored by words... It is timely to set a symbolic sign for the real spiritual source of unity which forms the basis of all diverse ways of expression in a period in which the world will be closely connected informationally, politically and economically even more".

Prof. Dr. Guenter Nitschke - Prof. Bettina Langner-Teramoto, Kyoto/Japan, December 26, 2001

"In the face of the unpredictable brutality nobody can be permitted to think that religion is none of his business. Nations have come together more closely politically and economically and also by communication through the internet. And, what's much more important, the different religions as well have begun to respect each other and to open up mutually. An escalation of affairs might not only put at stake the preceding steps but might also hit each of us, irrespective of religion, nationality or ethnic group, as it was shown by the 9-11 events.
The UNITHEUM, encompassing all world religions, would serve as a location of 'religio', a place of reconsideration on the origin, the essentials, not only in respect to religion but rather to the human being as such. An inter-religious sacred building would offer an opportunity to seekers, to perceive that the essence of the various religions has always been one and the same. This realization could be, so to speak, a quantum leap within the spiritual evolution of mankind. It is the foundation on which 'unity and justice and liberty' may move forwards unimpeded to the welfare of all beings.
I am sure that this vision will soon become reality, and also, that the symbol of unity and liberty, emerging from this place, will cause an echo with other peoples and religions".

"I will start to share your information on UNITHEUM where ever I can for it is so very inspirational! I will give special thought to your project. I was thinking that I wanted to use some of the information of the CD - that which is used to help with donations for the Hope Project. I wanted to do something similiar for Unitheum. I'm sure this would help me promote the project in the United States".
