Thomas Merton and His Holiness the Dalai Lama

When Tibetan Buddhist Monk His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Christian Trappist Monk Thomas Merton met on November 4, 6 and 8 in 1968, both were profoundly touched. Merton’s untimely death a month later did not end the ramifications of these historic conversations that were held in the mountain city of Dharamshala, India. In the years since, the Dalai Lama has often referred to the impact this Christian Monk had on his own growth as an international bridge of interfaith harmony and peacemaking.
Join us to explore the practical intersection between Merton and His Holiness’ visions and an engaged, compassionate and nonviolent city.
The Center for Interfaith Relations invites you to a reception and special announcement about the 2019 Festival of Faiths immediately preceding the Spiritual Catalyst for Compassion event, 6:00pm.
Free Event – All Are Welcome! Offered by DGCEC in partnership with Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine and Center for Interfaith Relations.
