Mission Blog: Interfaith Dialogue with Buddhists and our Seminarians in Indonesia

“Buddhism and its relevance in the modern world” was the topic of the interreligious dialogue activity held by the Xaverian Philosophy Community of Jakarta on October 29, 2022. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, interreligious dialogue has been carried out through zoom meetings. For the first time after the pandemic, we were able to carry out this activity in our presence, at our home.

The difference is felt when there is an encounter in interreligious dialogue. The guess was Mrs. Ferlina Sugata, a Buddhist teacher from Maranatha University, Bandung. She also has expertise in the field of general architecture and the architecture of Buddhist temples or stupas. Furthermore, she has given several seminars and got many awards.
