11532Re: May 18: SFVS dining out Buddha's Birthday
- May 5, 2013I am glad to know about the policy of tolerance and diversity. The approach of the Peaceful World Foundation is a good one . . . that is, sitting down at the same table with people from a broad range of backgrounds and traditions, listening, respecting and learning from various traditions.
That certainly is desirable and mature, as opposed to, for example, someone making a demonstration or getting up and walking out when they hear something they don't agree with. It is good to follow, "Live and let live." Two thumbs up!!

In fact, just a few months ago we had a National Handwriting Day dinner party. And I'm considering organizing a dining out for Platt Rogers Spencer's birthday later in the year.
