The importance of maintaining the cosmic chain of interdependence need to be reaffirmed by people of all religions, believing that when any part of the chain snaps the potentiality of destruction is also of cosmic proportion. The knowledge of cosmic interdependence, provided by primal tribal worldview, is a valuable perspective to keep our relationship with God and all else not only meaningful but also productive.

Interfaith dialogue should not intend to take away or brush aside respective and distinct faiths and practices of other religions nor should it aim at coming to a common and syncretized belief. It rather should seek to accomplish a mutual recognition and understanding of `other' faiths and beliefs to build good relationships between religious schools, as people are expected to live in harmony in any given community of a region.

In a world that is increasingly becoming religiously intolerant, interfaith dialogue has become essential in order to help people discover, celebrate and promote the reality of pluralism. It is important that people respect and have appreciation for other's faith traditions. In dialogue we hope to build relationships, identify commonly-held beliefs and enhance the participants' own faith experience.
