(TibetanReview.net, Dec06, 2014) – Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, will be the keynote speaker – along with Karen Armstrong – at The Parliament of World’s Religions to be held in Salt Lake City, USA, over Oct 15-19 next year, reported universe.byu.edu Dec 4. He was also a keynote speaker at the 2009 Parliament held in Melbourne, Australia.

The report said the city, located in the state of Utah, will host 80 nationalities and 50 religious faiths and spiritual traditions from around the world during the five-day event.

Imam Malik Mujahid, the Chairman of the Parliament Board of Trustees, has said, “The Parliament is the largest summit of interfaith activists around the globe which provides listening, learning and sharing opportunities.”

Karen Armstrong is a “religious thinker who has written more than 20 books on faith and the major religions, studying how faiths shaped world history and drive current events,” said the organizers in a press release.

Some 10,000 people are expected to attend the Parliament, to be held for the first time in the USA in 22 years, with the venue being the Salt Lake Palace Convention.

“Parliament of the World’s Religions is not about uniting to create one religion, but we strive for something that is more achievable — that is, harmony between people of different faiths,” Mujahid has said.
