This is the kick-off session of the Multi-Faith Forum Series Events at Stanford University, April 2010 multifaithforum.stanford.edu
"Have you ever wondered... Why is it that my friend is a Buddhist, and I am not? How can so many different
philosophies all attempt to describe one single reality? What am I assuming with my personal view of the world?"
An evening with distinguished scholars from several different faith backgrounds and world religions coming together to discuss:
• The basis of faith for their belief (Either from the "truth claim" perspective, or more general reasons for a particular belief system)
• Their own religion in the context of diversity (ie. How does their philosophy interpret the other philosophies?)
This video contains the second half of the session, with lecture by the Hindu speaker, and Q&A session with all three speakers:
- Swami Vedananda, San Francisco Vedanta Society
- Jihad Turk, Director of Religious Affairs at the Islamic Center of Southern California
- John Stackhouse, Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology and Culture at Regent College
