International Academic Conference on Global Peace and Hindu Teachings
Tuesday 24 June to Thursday 26 June 2014


As modern technology increases human connectivity and decreases distances between peoples and nations, the need for peace for individuals and societies becomes more pronounced. The quest for peace within and without is fundamental to various Hindu teachings, and the elucidation of the role of peace within Hinduism can positively contribute to not just academic scholarship but to humanity at large.

To this end, the All-India Philosophy Association (Akhil Bhartiya Darshan Parishad) is organising an international academic conference in collaboration with BAPS Swaminarayan Research Institute and the Indo-Hellenic Society for Culture and Development, Greece to be held at the Mandir in June.
