The Temple of Understanding



The Temple of Understanding focuses on Interfaith Education in order to overcome prejudice and intolerance. Our goal is to educate ourselves and others to understand and respect all Religious Traditions.

So, as a Christian, I come to the dialogue with great interest and urgency especially since the history of these two great Abrahamic Traditions has been troubled. What we have heard here today only confirms my deepest belief in the need for dialogue and education.

We know that intercultural and interreligious dialogue is not a luxury but an essential condition for peace.

I have been privileged to work closely during the past year with the Tri-Partite Interfaith Forum, so named because of it includes three UN constituencies - Member State (20 in number), UN System Agencies (with UNESCO as the lead Agency) and the NGO community represented by the Bureau of the NGO at the UN.  Last June this Forum hosted a Conference on the Interfaith Cooperation for Peace and we continue to meet to define our role and to provide opportunities for all three groups to work together.  Our hope and expectation is for collaboration with the Alliance of Civilizations.


This emerging movement toward global interreligious understanding and cooperation is critical for our time. To achieve lasting global change, innovative partnerships across traditional boundaries are needed.  In this context alliance-building among key partners is crucial. I refer alliances among: Religious communities, transnational civil society, governments and the UN system and its international agencies.

It is time to overcome age-old divisions and to seek together new forms of effective, just and global cooperation.
