Introduction:
An intriguing and landmark dialogue between two contemplative schools

Description:
In recent decades, individuals and groups within the Catholic Church have been engaged in interfaith dialogue with Buddhist traditions. When one thinks of contemplative religion one can't overlook the Carmelite tradition, which hearkens back to the Prophet Elijah and was granted a formal rule of life in 1209. Saint Teresa of Avila was the Carmelite reformer of the 16th century and it is the Order she leaves behind that is reaching out to Theravada Buddhists so that the two religions can draw closer together.

Joining us to discuss the intersections between Teresian mysticism and Theravada Buddhism is Daniel Millet, who was born in Barcelona and is currently completing a PhD program in Buddhist Studies at the Center of Buddhist Studies at The University of Hong Kong under the supervision of Prof. Toshiichi Endo. The title of his thesis is: "The Path and the Castle: A Comparative Study of the Dynamics of Spiritual Life in the Path of Purification of Buddhaghosa and the Interior Castle of Teresa of Avila."

He is also promoting the “1st WORLD ENCOUNTER TERESIAN MYSTICISM AND INTERRELIGIOUS DIALOGUE: Theravada Buddhism and Teresian Mysticism: meditation and contemplation pathways to peace,” which is organized by the International Centre of Teresian and Sanjuanist Studies in collaboration with the Centre of Buddhist Studies of The University of Hong Kong. This conference will be held in the city of Avila, Spain, from the 27th to the 30th of July 2017.

Introduction:
How Buddhism could inform a holistic vision of capitalism

Description:
As we grow increasingly aware of the unsustainability of current systems of consumption and production, along with the disastrous ecological consequences that will befall us should we not change course, religious traditions are increasingly concerned with mobilizing their adherents to the global cause of sustainable economic development. Buddhism is no exception, and in recent decades much as been made of Buddhism’s potential to inform economic policy through its philosophy of non-clinging and letting go of greed and ego.

With us to discuss Buddhism and sustainable economic development is Ernest Ng, chief investment officer at Sumeru Capital. His column, Mindful Capital, is published on Buddhistdoor Global every month.
