“Dharma ensures the well-being and progress of humanity.”
The second annual Sanatana Dharma Conference (2014) will be an exciting gathering of dedicated devotees of the Sanatana Dharma tradition. The purpose will be to lay out the future growth of the Vedic spiritual tradition for the 21st century and beyond.
This conference is designed to greatly further the attendees' understanding of the Vedic path, to deepen our own personal spiritual experience, and to share with the entire world the life-changing teachings of Vedic spirituality. This unique Vedic conference will bring together the spiritual, aesthetic, health, social-political and sadhana (practice) aspects of Dharmic culture in a very practical and immediate manner.
Join participants from throughout the world for two days of profound spiritual practice and experience, inspiring discourses by advanced Dharma teachers, meditation and Yoga sessions, puja and yajna (sacred fire ritual) ceremonies, an initiation (diksha) ceremony, delicious vegetarian meals, as well as spiritual workshops and activities designed to give us a taste of the Golden Age.
This is not an academic gathering with boring theoretical talks. It is a dynamic experiential retreat offering you a rare opportunity for life-changing spiritual and philosophical growth, spiced with inspiring talks and workshops designed to empower you spiritually.
The keynote speaker will be Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya - Vedic Philosopher, Dharma Acharya, and prolific author. Many other well-known speakers will soon be announced.
Seating is very limited. Please register as soon as possible to reserve your seat. Lunches and dinner will be provided. A $30 registration and meals contribution (non-refundable), along with a fully filled out registration form, are required to submit your registration.
“As we preserve Dharma, we are
likewise protected by Dharma.”
