Announcement of the 5th Global Gita Conference in Durham, Great Britain, August 2007
— to be inaugurated and blessed by Sri Swamiji Himself in person —
Letter of Dr. Nath and Sri Hari Shukla
On behalf of the International Gita Foundation Trust, I would like to keep you informed of the 5th Global Gita Conference to be held at the Gala theatre, Durham in August 2007.
The trust was formed in 2003 to promote the message from the sacred text, The Srimad Bhagawadgita. One of its main objectives was to bring the message of Peace and Prosperity nearer to the present day youth and to let the general public get an opportunity to attend the annual conferences and listen to the discourse/commentary on the sacred text by the great saints of our land and scholars across the word.
Activities of the Foundation so far:
So far, with the blessings of the Lord and support by a number of devotees we have conducted conferences at Bangalore, Mysore and Hospet and Vijayawada.
The Fifth Conference:
The fifth conference is to be held at the Gala theatre, Durham, on 18 and 19th August 2007.
The theatre is located within the vicinity of the famous Durham cathedral and has all the modern facilities to host an international conference.
We have formed an interim committee of friends and well wishers to plan out the entire programme for 2007. It is a mammoth task and if you would like to be part of the planning committee please let us know. On the other hand if you have any useful suggestions to make the conference a success, please drop a note.
As the conference is outside India and taking into consideration that global conflict that is going on, we have decided to make it a platform to involve the youth of today and other religious faiths.
The title for the conference will be
“Faith and Global Peace.”
