1993. 28 Aug - 5 Sep The first time that many religious representatives met with each other was at the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893. The goals of this gathering were: (1) to show "what and how many important truths the various Religions hold and teach in common;" (2) to discover "what light Religion has to throw on the great problems of the present age;" and (3) "to bring the nations of the earth into a more friendly fellowship, in the hope of securing permanent international peace."

At the first modern Parliament held in Chicago an Assembly of 250 religious and spiritual leaders endorsed a groundbreaking document, Towards a Global Ethic: An Initial Declaration. One of the speakers was His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. [Chicago 1993]
