In a remarkable interfaith gesture, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed and Bishop Dan Edwards of Episcopal Diocese of Nevada met in Nevada recently and had a dialogue.
Topics discussed were notion of God and idea of devotion to him, spirituality, ultimate reality, similarities/differences between Christianity and Hinduism, living together with seriously different traditions, etc.
Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, says that dialogue brings us reciprocal enrichment. In our shared exploration for truth, we should learn from each other and thus come nearer to the truth.
The Episcopal Church is made up of between two and three million worshipers in about 7500 congregations across USA and related dioceses outside USA. It strives to live by the message of Christ, walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions.
