February's State of Formation topic is bullying of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons. The recent and ongoing campaign is to impress upon the victims of bullying the message that “it gets better.” Which means, there can be a happy life after bullying, if you can just endure the present torment.
You can check out the project here: http://www.itgetsbetter.org . While I agree with the sentiment, it rings eerily close to a religious…Continue
Although many Christian pluralist theologies of religion have been advocated in different forms to promote the real value of many religious traditions, critics most often target the classic pluralist proposal advanced by John Hick, one which explains the many religions as separate paths toward one transcendent goal. This paper traces the ways in which Raimon Panikkar’s pluralist theology departs from Hick’s by adopting a different response to Kantian epistemology. By relying on…

When you shoot in the dark, it is likely to hit some one.
An idiot randomly says things hoping the shoe may fit someone at any given time, but that should not encourage the one to support the idiot, in the long run; he will nail every one unintentionally.
Glen Beck apologizes for comparing reformed Judaism to radical Islam. That is how much the man knows about Judaism, Islam or anything.
I am glad the Jewish groups took action; actually we all need to join hands…

Trusting people to manage their own affairs with relative freedom is the key to creating cohesive societies for the benefit of all. What is good for me has got to be good for others to sustain it.

"I do not know how to prove physically, that we shall meet and know each other in a future state; nor does Revelation, as I can find, give us any positive assurance of such a felicity. My reasons for believing it, as I do most undoubtedly, are that I cannot conceive such a being could make such a species as the human, merely to live and die on this earth. If I did not believe in a future state, I should believe in no God. This Universe, this all would appear, with…Continue

First visit to the temple then to the God. Is it not possible to reach the god without visiting the temple? Yes one can. Where one can get education or training to that – Religious education or training lost its importance. Our education systems untouchables- another set back.
Nature – water, fire, air – unity best example – according to us they are things – though they acts – We call it as calamity.
What is our target – is it achieving certain posts in the world? Yes may be…Continue

This piece originally appeared in The Huffington Post, February 21, 2011.
If asked to identify factions clawing at each other’s religious throats on the American and world stage, who would you cite? Protestants vs. Catholics? Muslims vs. Jews and Hindus?

I recently had the opportunity to visit the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery here in Washington, DC and see the Hide/Seek exhibit. Many of the artists are a part of American culture such as Andy Warhol and Langston Hughes. What is unique about this exhibit is that it highlights what much of America and the world for that matter has tried to forget or at least not think about, the fact that LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) are just as much a part of society as any other group.…Continue

On the surface, emphasis in the Hindu and Dharmic (eastern) traditions appears to be primarily on inner self realization. We are encouraged to engage in community service as a transformation practice, sadhana, without personal recognition or publicity. Our underlying Vedic philosophy, often quoted…Continue

So the story begins like this. Four students, an Ahmadi Muslim, a Protestant Christian, a Sikh and a Hindu are crammed into a tiny dorm room at Princeton University. Each comes out three days later, having discovered the solution for world peace. Yeah, seriously.
Last weekend, Princeton University hosted the 5th Annual Coming Together Interfaith Conference (CT5), a conference designed to counter a growing…Continue
