Detailed Congress schedule now available - click
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.
