Abstract: This article explores the concept and term 'interfaith dialogue' critically from Buddhist and linguistic points of view. The author proposes an alternative: 'spiritual interaction', which is based not on the 'word', but rather on a Buddhist 'view of communication'. This alternative focuses on all six senses, including the mind, and accomplishes two things: it removes the Christocentric context of interfaith dialogue, and it proposes a new language for a new, more inclusive and progressive worldview.
