Swami Chidanandaji speaks at the Gregorian University in Rome commemorating the 50th anniversary of Nostra Aetate.

 

 
Following the 3 days conference at the Gregorian University in Rome, commemorating the 50th anniversary of Nostra Aetate (a declaration in 1965 after which the Catholic Church opened its doors to other non-Christian religions for dialogues), there was this Press Conference at the Vatican.

Swami Chidananda speaks here for about 6 minutes, starting at the 22nd minute of this YouTube video.

He earlier presented a paper for 20 mins at the Conference on the second day, that is 27th October. The Pope met and shook hands with representatives of different religions on the morning of the 28th (two hours before this press conference); after delivering a discourse (in Italian), he came down and walked to us; he greeted all of us one by one, including Brni Vibha Chaitanya and Swami Chidananda.
