Reminder: Eastern Religions Conference


Conference--Eastern Religions Conference
8:00 p.m.- 11:30 p.m.
William Pitt Union Ballroom

This is a great opportunity to learn about Eastern religions in order to dispel common misconceptions and encourage tolerance among people of different religious backgrounds. The featured faiths include Theravada Buddhism, Eastern Orthodox Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, and Sikhism. Each speaker will explain the main beliefs of the faith through a 10-minute PowerPoint presentation and will hit upon several points including: basics of the faith, living and learning according to the faith, how the faith deals with death and the afterlife, a common prayer of the faith, the speaker's own take on the faith, and what it means to him/her. After all representatives have presented about their faith, there will be a Q&A session with the audience. Refreshments will be provided. For more information, contact Sudipta Devanath -
