World Faith: The Interfaith Service Network

Hindu and Catholic leaders engage in dialogue in Connecticut 13 June , 2011

Nevada (US), June 13: In a remarkable interfaith gesture, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed and Roman Catholic Archbishop Most Reverend Henry J. Mansell met in Hartford (Connecticut, USA) and had a dialogue.

Meeting in Archdiocese of Hartford, two leaders discussed living together harmoniously as communities with seriously different traditions, etc., and agreed that more interfaith dialog was needed at both organization and individual levels among various religions/denominations aiming at deriving at a common ground. We should listen to each other from the dimensions of love, compassion, and respect; it was stressed.

Rajan Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, says that dialogue brings us reciprocal enrichment. In our shared exploration for truth, we should learn from each other and thus come nearer to the truth.
