The Mountain Has Many Paths
On Friday the 18th of October 2002, Professor Gwen Griffith-Dickson delivered a lecture on the topic of 'The Mountain has Many Paths' at Barnard’s Inn Hall, Gresham College. Hawaiian religion has a saying: 'The mountain has many paths'. This is immediately appealing for those who would like to believe that all religious people worship the same God, or are in touch with the same Ultimate Reality; a sentiment commonly expressed by those interested in inter-faith dialogue. However, the Hawaiian saying does not say that all the paths lead to the same place.
