Spiritual leaders from the east and west are converging in South Florida to discuss the universal concept of compassion. It’s a word used often, but how can compassion serve to improve individual lives and communities? During a panel discussion at Florida International University, the public is invited to hear from such respected sources as Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Arun Gandhi and Yogi Master Paramahamsa Prajnanananda – Prajnanananda is the 7th lineage leader of the ancient meditative practice Kriya Yoga — one of the oldest and most sacred of the meditative techniques from India.

The theme is Love and Compassion are Our True Nature, An Interfaith Dialogue. Registration begins at 6 p.m., panel commences at 6:30 p.m. and concludes at 9:30 p.m. after audience Q&A.

The purpose of both events is to promote love, compassion and intercultural understanding through a non-political forum where recognized leaders in a variety of traditions can expound on their views to achieving happiness and unity.

The symposium is dedicated to the memory of his Holiness Paramahamsa Hariharananda, the renowned spiritual leader of the Kriya Yoga Institute, and in celebration of his pilgrimage to the west, exactly 40 years ago.

These events are a rare opportunity for interested people to attend public discussions lead by notable leaders in the spiritual realm. Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made by calling 305-247-1960 or via email at [email protected]
