The Pure Land Learning College Association, under the guidance of Venerable Master Chin Kung, AK, has been supporting many multicultural and multifaith activities for the past ten years. Lasting peace and harmony for all living beings is the hope that we share with everyone who travels on the same ship that we call Earth. With the seemingly endless waves of disasters, man-made and natural in recent years, we feel that it is our responsibility to do our part to help improve our chances of achieving peace and harmony.
The Multifaith Multicultural Centre of the Pure Land Learning College Association (PLLCA) objective is to make Toowoomba a model city of peace and harmony. We wish to preserve and treasure the distinct features of each ethnicity and culture. With a mind that is loving, compassionate, and accepting, we can all mutually respect, accept and harmoniously treat one another impartially.
To achieve that goal, the Multifaith Multicultural Centre's efforts are based on the following:
- Mission: To strengthen social cohesion, promote greater social trust through greater appreciation of diversity in faiths and beliefs across multicultural communities.
- Vision: To help establish Toowoomba as a model city of peace and harmony.
The Multifaith Multicultural Centre and the Pure Land Learning College Association Inc. (PLLCA), together with strong support from faith and community leaders in Toowoomba, Australia, is offering strategies and a plan of action towards achieving the vision of establishing Toowoomba as a model city of peace and harmony. Sustainable peace and harmony can only be built in the solid foundation of religious harmony. To accomplish this goal, it's important that all faiths and religions come together and co-exist as ones community in order to accomplish a common goal. This can only be achieved if we gain a better understanding of the different faiths and religions including insight into their respective teachings. As part of that objective, the Multifaith Multicultural Centre is sponsoring weekly talks with various religious leaders from Toowoomba every Saturday morning.
