(Established by the State Legislature Act XII of 1956)
Call for Papers for National Seminar on
15th March, 2016
VENUE: Faculty Lounge
Department of Philosophy, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra extends a cordial invitation to the academia & research fraternity to contribute a research paper and participate in One Day National Seminar on “Interfaith Dialogue” on March 15, 2016. Growth and development of a country is hampered when there is no peace in the society. The society and the nation have to maintain peace and social harmony for ensuring smooth and sustainable growth and development. Interfaith Dialogue is an important instrument through which people will understand, learn and inherit each other’s spiritual teachings and welcome mutual cooperation. Every religion offers some insight, observation and instructions that are universally acceptable and helpful to the human conditions.
All religions inculcate basic values such as love, non-violence, equality, justice, compassion and truth. The value system in religion is the soul while the rituals are the body. The people have to be convinced that there is something which is greater than our differences and distinctiveness, which binds us together. And that is the principle of unity. From all religious principles and writings people can derive benefit and this is only possible when everyone realizes the essential unity of all religions through Interfaith Dialogue. It is with this understanding that the Department of Philosophy in collaboration with the National Foundation for Communal Harmony, New Delhi proposes to organize a One Day National Seminar on “INTERFAITH DIALOGUE”.
