Interreligious Life Issues : Relationship, Education, Prayer, Marriage, Funeral and Engagement

There is no life without relationships. In a multi-religious context, for a life of mutual enrichment, a genuine and friendly inter-religious relationship is vital. Such relationship alone defines authentic and matured religious life. This relationship is explored in opportunities to know and understand one another. It finds expression in inter-religious prayer and spirituality with agreed form and right intent. In the cases of inter-religious marriage, it is proved that human love has the capacity to transcend structures and identities. The context of inter-religious funeral, both formal and informal, provides a space for sharing visions of ultimate goal and their impact on the present life. The final testing point is, how inter-religious friends engage in concrete actions for social transformation and world peace. In all these explorations, as argued in this book, the guiding principles are `commitment and openness'.
