If all religions make the betterment of humanity
their main concern, then they can easily work
together in harmony for world peace. Interfaith
understanding will bring about the unity necessary
for all religions to work together.
-Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama
We are one human family united in our desire for peace and happiness. The various faith traditions of the world show ways to experience and express this central fact. The peace we all seek will only be realized as we understand and appreciate the shared values in our different faith traditions. We are honored to host the 2011 visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Through his words and inspiration, we hope to lay the foundation for interfaith bridges throughout Chicago.
Tim Boyd, President, Theosophical Society in America
