Catholicism and Interreligious Dialogue

This chapter presents a response to comments in the previous chapter. While this chapter recognizes what the previous chapter had to say about the growing number of Americans influenced by Hinduism, it maintains that the influence of Buddhism is even greater. And while it is appreciative of the previous chapter’s comments, the chapter notes that the swami represents only one of the many interpretations of Hinduism, that of the Ramakrishna Vedanta Society, an interpretation of Hinduism that in many ways finds areas of commonality with Christianity. Finally, this chapter notes that even though the dialogue does not have the same urgency today as that with Muslims, its respondents offer a good description of a number of the important areas that need to be addressed by the Catholic-Hindu dialogue.

Keywords:   Catholicism, Hinduism, interreligious dialogue, Buddhism, Catholic-Hindu dialogue
