Amritsar - His Holiness the Dalai Lama will join some 50 senior religious figures at a major inter-faith dialogue this week in Amritsar on how to heal the world through love and forgiveness.

The five-day summit organised by the Elijah Interfaith Institute aims to bring together representatives from each of the major religions, including Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism and other religions.

His Holiness will give a keynote address on how can religions share their wisdom at Guru Nanak Dev University on 28 November.

His Holiness said, "Our planet is in desperate need for love, forgiveness and inter-religious harmony. This meeting of leaders and scholars from around the world will explore how the wisdom of our traditions can help achieve these things."

Dr Alan Goshen-Gottstein, founder and Executive Director of the Elijah Interfaith Institute said, "this meeting of the most senior religious leaders in the world takes places at a crucial time in our history. While technologies advances have brought wonderful opportunities, we still see insecurities, violence and hatred. The answer to our most pressing problems do not lie in technology and the material realm alone."

He said, "This global gathering of minds will explore how, by responsibly sharing wisdom, the great faiths can have a practical and meaningful role in bringing love and forgiveness into this world. Sharing wisdom is key to healing the wounds of the world."

Other participants include American Christians including Miroslav Volf, the British Chief Rabbi, Dr Jonathan Sacks and Sheikh Muhhamad Nur Abdallah, President of the Islamic Society of North America, Cardinal Telesphore Placidus Toppo of India, Chief Rabbi Joseph Azran of Israel and religious scholar Adamou Ndam Njoya of Cameroon.

This is the third meeting of the Elijah Board of World leaders. Previous meetings of the Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders were convened in Seville in 2003 and Taiwan in 2005.
