Introduction

The events of September 11, 2001 are etched in the collective consciousness of our generation and ineffaceable from modern memory. They also brought to the fore the issue of the role of religion in the present day world. A global congress on World’s religious After September 11 was held in Montreal from 11-15 September 2006 to explore this issue further and to examine whether religious could also be a force for good, notwithstanding he current opprobrium which attached to it. A total of 225 speakers participated in over 8 workshops, 18 plenary sessions, 47 panels and 236 individual presentations over the five days of this congress, which attracted 2025 participants from 84 countries.

I hope the readers will welcome the sampling of material presented at this congress, now offered through the medium of this volume. It also includes the text of the universal Declaration of human rights, which was released at this congress for discussion in the academic and faith communities.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
