Building on the first Buddhist-Muslim Relations sponsored by the Buddhist Council of NY and the Peace Islands Institute in February 2014, this afternoon’s dialogue will continue the interfaith exploration with two prominent scholars/faith leaders. The conversation will touch upon the misconceptions that Muslims and Buddhists have of each other — often fueled by the media, especially in the wake of events in Bangladesh, Burma, and Bodhgaya (India). The speakers will present the core teachings and practices of these two traditions and reflect on the commonalities and possible challenges that their differences may present. The event will include a light lunch, time for conversation, and mingling.
