The following is adapted from a speech by His Highness the Aga Khan at the Sept. 12 opening of the Ismaili Centre in Toronto.
It is not so often that we have an opportunity of this sort – to come together in a beautiful setting, in a wonderful spirit of friendship, and to dedicate such a splendid architectural accomplishment.
As we inaugurate this building, we also have the opportunity to contemplate what it represents: the inspiring traditions of the past, the stirring challenges of the future and the continuing search for peace through prayer.
… I hope you will join in my profound happiness in recalling the cradle of friendship in which this centre has been born. And I know that all of you will also share my profound wish that the centre will now prolong, decade after decade, its beautiful legacy of friendship and enlightenment.
– His Highness the Aga Khan at the September 12 opening of the Ismaili Centre in Toronto, Canada
