Compassion: Venerable Bhikkhu Sanghasena

Sharing Wisdom

October, 2009

Venerable Bhikkhu Sanghasena discusses the need for compassion in this world and how our commonality as humans must bring us together in peace, not divide us in anger.

The Fourth Bi-Annual Meeting of the Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders met in Haifa and Galillee, from Oct. 18-22, 2009. The meeting was devoted to the theme “The Future of Religious Leadership”. It explored what it means to be a religious leader, in all participating religions, what challenges religious leaders face today and how religious leaders should be trained. In this context, the Fetzer Institute and the Elijah Interfaith Institute filmed religious leaders further exploring the concepts of forgiveness, compassion, love, humility and mindfulness.
