Chapter Summary

The purpose of this chapter is to recount various stages of this ongoing pilgrimage of lovea pilgrimage in tension, with the horizon set on experiential expressions of surrender before the Ineffable Mystery, where dialogue becomes a celebration of communion. Hindu friends very often pick up the Vedic assertion ekam sat viprah bahudha vadanti. Muslim partners often repeat the sayings as we accept all the Prophets, and give the same respect to all the Prophets. Thus, from the different religious or inter-religious circles, this formulation that to be religious is to be inter-religious is getting general acceptance. Partners in interfaith dialogue have to be on guard against crossing the boundaries of a particular faith-tradition. Partners in dialogue are often afraid to open themselves up because they are aware of the existence of documents that give the impression that one group or other claims superiority over others.

Keywords: Hindus; interfaith dialogue; Muslim partners; pilgrim
