Abstract:

On the fifth anniversary of 9/11, 1,800 delegates gathered at the Congress of World Religions in Montreal to spend a week in ecumenical dialogue. This program captures the wisdom of attendees who, speaking from the podium or offstage, address topics ranging from widespread religious fanaticism, the destabilizing action/reaction spiral of violence, and the misuse of religion for political ends to defusing alienation through acceptance, fighting the radical poverty that polarizes communities, and nurturing understanding through greater awareness of the oneness of humankind. Participants include Congress President Arvind Sharma; Rabbi David Rosen; religious mythologist Karen Armstrong; the University of Montreal's Patrice Brodeur; George Washington University's Seyyed Hossein Nasr; Yifa, recipient of the UN's Outstanding Women in Buddhism Award; Harvard Divinity School's Harvey Cox; Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living Foundation; Deepak Chopra, president of the Alliance for a New Humanity; Nobel Laureate Shirin Ebadi; and Huston Smith, philosopher of world religions.
