Crossing barriers that divide us by listening, understanding and empathizing with the position of others in order to arrive at greater harmony in our relationships
While Shinnyo-en Foundation (SEF) is a secular philanthropic arm of the Shinnyo-en USA Buddhist Order, interfaith collaboration is important to SEF’s mission and values. We believe that dialogue and engagement among varied faith communities can be a vehicle to promote inclusivity and service-driven change for communities.
We see interfaith collaboration as a way to listen to and incorporate diverse opinions and thoughts where people from varied faith backgrounds can create a bond based on their humanness and shared values.
