In May of 2010, His Holiness the Dalai Lama spoke at St. John the Divine Cathedral in New York City on interfaith cooperation. He emphasized: “Harmony among the major faiths has become an essential ingredient of peaceful coexistence in our world. From this perspective, mutual understanding among these traditions is not merely the business of religious believers – it matters for the welfare of humanity as a whole.”
Following this clear message, the English Dharma Group, a member of Interfaith Ministries of Greater Houston and home to people of all backgrounds and walks of life, informs you of interfaith events, dialogues and programs in the community and beyond. Check out our calendar for programs details. See below a snapshot of interfaith events in Houston.
