Talk: The Harmony of Religions

Speaker: Patrick Horn

September 9, 2018

Seven generations and 125 years ago, at the first Parliament of Religions at the World’s Fair and Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Swami Vivekananda called for an end to sectarianism, bigotry, and violent fanaticism.

This November, the Parliament convenes again to honor indigenous peoples’ rights, empower women and youth, and lead environmental stewardship efforts.

“There have always been parties of men, philosophers, students of comparative religion, who have tried and are still trying to bring about harmony in the midst of all these jarring and discordant sects.” – Swami Vivekananda, THE WAY TO THE REALIZATION OF UNIVERSAL RELIGION

“To bring harmony into religion must always be difficult. Yet we shall consider this problem of the harmony of religions.” – Swami Vivekananda, THE IDEAL OF A UNIVERSAL RELIGION
