AN EVENING OF WISDOM: Date & Place to be announced  

.It's dinner table talk with people who have a genuine interest in understanding and respecting other points of view.  DOWN LOAD  An Evening for the Sages (below)

The Foundation for Pluralism is dedicated to appreciation and inclusion of all religious communities in its programs. We provide a platform for different faiths to come together, and share their beliefs, systems and rituals, in friendship to expand the comfort zone of each group. It is hoped that it would result in better understanding, demystifying the 'hearsay' and 'myths' arising from ignorance. 

It is a facilitated dinner conversation with equal opportunity, equal time and equal access to all.

 DESCRIPTION

 PROGRAM  An Evening of Wisdom
 TIME  6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
 DATE  Sunday, TBA
 PARTICIPATION  25 Individuals from each faith and 250 in all.
 DINNER  Vegetarian, Halal, Kosher and other dietary requirements must be registered
 REQUIREMENTS  A genuine interest in understanding other's point of view
 RULES * express your opinions precisely * Listen with an open mind * Humility in hearts * Eschew innuendo or feeling of superiority * Park arrogance outside * Pay attention to another point of view
 OUR MISSION  Our mission is to engender an open mind and an open heart toward our fellow beings. When we accept and respect the God given uniqueness of each one of the 7 billion inhabitants of our small planet, conflicts fade and solutions emerge. We believe that knowledge leads to understanding; understanding to acceptance and appreciation of a different point of view.
 FINDING TRUTH  Finding "the truth" our individual responsibility. It is a journey we undertake through our best yet imperfect effort and hope to arrive at a better spiritual place. The fact that we always must act on the basis of imperfect understanding of reality does not mean we must not act.  Building a set of values requires a leap of faith, even when that leap is wholly secular. An overwhelming majority of people are pluralists, often without knowing it. "Live and Let Live", is their life style and they don't push their beliefs onto others.
   

The challenge is to meet* enough people in any given faith, race or group,  to get a diverse and reasonably reliable information. The self constructed bars of the prison of prejudices would gradually melt away. It would lead to a more happy and serene life.

You are invited to participate, please send an email to: info@foundationforpluralism.com . We are indeed seeking sponsors for this event.
