    For the last eight years Father John Dupuche, a priest of the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne, has lived in an interfaith household – in fact, the parish house – with Swami Sannyasanand, a yogi of the Satyananda lineage, and Venerable Lobsang Tendar, a Tibetan Buddhist monk of the Gyuto tradition. His experience in this context and his wider interfaith activities in Melbourne have led him, together with Father Michael Mifsud, an Oblate of the Camaldolese tradition, to wish to set up a fully fledged interfaith ashram. They have drawn up this "rule" and would appreciate comments from readers.
    Their experience in November 2010, also reported in this issue of Dilatato Corde, has shown the immense spiritual value of such a context for opening up the Christian mystery in ways we had never imagined possible. It will also show how humans can live together in unity and diversity.
