Lotus, the national flower of India and it's the symbol of peace and purity, as it finds a way to blossom amidst the murky waters. It symbolizes a ray of light that lights up the dark, gloomy surroundings. The Lotus Festival imbibes all the qualities a lotus is associated with in order to restore the humane touch that has been lost somewhere. The Lotus Festival is being held in Delhi, the capital of incredible India from the 1st to the 8th of Feb, 2015, during the UN World Interfaith harmony week. The objective of this event is to inculcate humanity and trust among different cultures with the view of promoting interfaith & tourism in the vibrant and historically rich city of Delhi.
  • Lotus Torch Run
    • Lotus Torch Run to spread the message of peace and harmony has been organized as a part of this weeklong event.  The torch stands for the ray of hope that refuses to extinguish even during dire circumstances. The world more than anything is in need of hope and positivity. Through this torch run we aim to touch the lives of millions of people in Delhi and other parts of the world.
  • Lotus Lantern Parade
    • This idea was directly inspired from the Lotus Lantern Parade that takes place in South Korea every year, According to religious beliefs, lanterns symbolize wisdom as they bring light to the world entrenched in darkness.

In 2014, Rabbi David Meyer, Imam Tareq Oubrou and Priest Michel Remaud have published a book called "The Vocation of the Holy Land". This joint work was aimed at comparing the concept of the "holy land" in different religious traditions to eventually imagine religious-inspired solutions to the ongoing war in Israel and the Palestinian territories. Invited at Sciences Po by the inter religious club "Coexister", Imam Tareq Oubrou and Rabbi David Meyer will meet French students to promote their theological approach of a political conflict in which religion is often manipulated to encourage violence. Sincere dialogue, solid hope for peace and the search for concrete solutions through an ambitious interfaith process: these are some of the key elements of this very inspiring joint work. Its authors are keen on discussing them soon with Sciences Po students at the conference they will give during the World Interfaith Harmony Week.
