From Buddhist and Christian Practices to Societal Harmony: A Conversation in Hong Kong

Theravada monk Ajahn Chandako and Christian counselor and consecrated member of the Focolare Movement Joseph Khor spoke to an audience at the Kowloon Union Church in Hong Kong on 17 January about what their respective religions teach about political participation. The conversation brought thousands of years of religious wisdom to bear on an issue close to the hearts of progressive Buddhists and others around the world. The speakers also brought global perspectives: Chandako being from the United States and currently residing at Vimutti Buddhist Monastery near Auckland, New Zealand, and Khor bringing an education spanning from Sophia University in Italy to Hong Kong University, and to his work as a Gestalt therapist in Hong Kong.
