Faith in Service of Humanity Conference

Further Activities

After the close of the seminar itself, participants continued to explore Gobind Sadan’s model of interfaith living by visiting Shiv Sadan, the community’s large farm on the banks of the Ganges in Uttar Pradesh, and participating in the devotional life of the Delhi community, including havan, kirtan, Akhand Path of Guru Granth Sahib, nightly candle-lighting at Jesus’s Place, and Namaz with explanations by Gobind Sadan’s imam. The foreign participants also visited famous sites to see more of Indian culture, including Qutb Minar, the Gandhi Museum, the Red Fort, the Taj Mahal, and Jaipur. They also spent much time in discussions of how to implement education about all religions in their own school systems and places of worship, based on all that they had seen and learned as a result of the Gobind Sadan Institute seminar on “Faith in Service of Humanity.”
