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

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 relational…Continue

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? In popular consciousness, Evangelical or evangelistically minded Christians and Muslims are plausible contenders.…Continue

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

Last week, amid the slowing of protests and the celebratory atmosphere in Egypt following the departure of former President Hosni Mubarak, a debate emerged over the honoring of police officers allegedly killed by anti-government forces. As Bob Drogin reported in the Los Angeles Times, hundreds of officers blocked traffic in Cairo with chants and posters commemorating their fallen…Continue

[Disclaimer: The following is an adapted excerpt from a semi-formal talk I gave a few weeks ago on the topic of “Wrath,” as part of a series on the “Seven Deadly Sins.” This is part of a larger series called Ockham’s Kegger sponsored by Christ Church—an Episcopal community in South Hamilton, MA. The point of Ockham’s Kegger, says Fr. Patrick Gray, is to discuss “issues of Christian faith in a casual and relaxed atmosphere… This program…will serve up challenging ideas to…Continue

It is a nightmare for an entire religious tradition to be put on the stand as a collective for the actions of an extreme few. It is worse still when the extreme few are such a miniscule fraction of the population.
In spite of mounting evidence that Muslim Americans are excelling at collaboration with American law enforcement and widely condemning terrorism, United States Congressman Peter King, a Republican from New York who…Continue

We accepted the common principles – religion by birth but it is not. The person who started the religion – we call as god – advised the people to follow certain principles in the life by which one can lead healthy and wealthy life- he never told it can possible by birth itself. Why we can not call son of doctor as doctor, lawyer son as lawyer, politician son as politician, actor children as actor and so on. One type of education or training one must take and make up his mind…Continue

As analysts ponder and proffer views on the real and potential impact from revolutionary tsunami in Egypt, it is essential that we in the U.S. also learn valuable lessons presented by this teachable moment. One such lesson is the fallacy of the “clash of civilizations” theory.
For two decades politicians, pundits, preachers, and some scholars have explained the tumultuous international conflict as evidence of…Continue
