Revelation of The Universal Gate: Leading a Meaningful Life & the Belief on Guanyin

The theme of the public lecture “revelation of the Universal Gate” is set based on two inter-related aspects, the appreciation of the various forms and contexts of inter-religious Guanyin worship, and the analysis of the socio-religious dimension of Guanyin worship in Singapore.
