  • comparative study of religions (without trying to prove that my religion is better);

  • learn the new ideas in science, religion, philosophy, art;

  • meet the people who (without snobbery and not for show) are trying to unite in themselves the belief and knowledge, science and religion, art and philosophy;

  • simply to talk with nice people.
