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. Besides advancing the research on Guanyin, this public lecture also aims to promote the spirit of great compassion and mercy, thereby strengthening the foundation of a harmonious society.
