The events of September 11, 2001 raise crucial issues for the future of religion in the world. Can the religious and the secular dimensions of life be reconciled? Can the relations among the different religions of the world be harmonised? Do we need a new religious attitude in the world symbolised by the word dharma or by some other word? Can the different religions come together in the practised spirituality of yoga or meditation? Must science always exacerbate the tension between religion and reason? Can religion help heal where medicine cures? Must women remain invisible because men and women are indivisible as human beings? Does the media only report religious conflicts or does it also contribute to them?

The religions of the world need to respond in a comprehensive way to the challenges posed by the events of September 11, 2001. This global conference is meant to facilitate this process, now that the various religious traditions have had five years to assess those events.
