KYOTO: Spiritual leaders from India and Pakistan are gathering in Japan for the third dialogue in an effort to deepen understanding of the underlying unity of religions as a framework for global peace. Buddhist leaders from Japan have been asked to host a retreat for delegates from two religious traditions whose home countries have been in conflict.
Shinnyo-en, a Buddhist community with roots in Japan is the host of the Kyoto interfaith dialogue. “Shinnyo-en is committed to altruism and peace building efforts all over the world and across religions. It is our honor to host this important interfaith dialogue, and to be able to bring our Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist friends to our Ryukyo-in, which we feel will have lasting effects,” said Reverend Minoru Shitara.
