On November 21st, 2015 about 200 people braved the winter conditions to come to an interfaith meeting organized by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jam’at Canada. The theme was God: Fact or Fiction? There were four speakers: a Baptist minister, an atheist, an Ahmadiyya Muslim representative, and ISKCON member Krsnadasa Kaviraja dasa. Each speaker was allotted 20 minutes and then there were questions and answers.
Krsnadasa put forth the Vedic viewpoint and afterward many people were anxious to hear more about the scientific basis of Krsna Consciousness. “This was a great opportunity to understand and to increase cooperation amongst followers of different faiths,” said Krsnadasa, “Especially one week after the Paris terrorist attacks.”
