On November 12, 2009, the "Charter for Compassion" was unveiled to the world, and the Berkley Center hosted a roundtable discussion with Karen Armstrong as part of the Charter's global launch. The "Charter for Compassion" is an interfaith initiative that seeks to apply shared moral principles to foster global interreligious understanding. Georgetown faculty, staff, and students posed questions about the Charter's drafting process, the action agenda for the Charter, and how the idea of compassion finds expression in diverse religious and secular traditions.
Karen Armstrong, one of the most original thinkers on the role of religion in modern life, joins LIVE for a talk about making the world a more compassionate place. Armstrong believes that while all human beings are intrisically compassionate, we each need to work to cultivate and expand our capacity for this important instinct. She demonstrates that a compassionate life is not a matter of only heart or mind but a deliberate and often life-altering commingling of the two.
This program is part of series of events related to NYPL’s exhibition Three Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, Islam on view in the Gottesman Exhibition Hall, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building through February 27, 2011.
