This International Dialogue is part of the celebrations Life Beyond Knowledge and Time, celebrating 60 years of teachings of Swami Veda Bharati in February 2007.

This International Dialogue will explore how yoga (and other ancient) sciences influences the things we do in today's world, and how these sciences could help shaping our world of tomorrow. One of the overarching questions for this dialogue is:
Will the application of holistic approaches, known from the ancient sciences, take us beyond concepts and minds, beyond the material world and show us the images of a non-material world characterized by 'fullness' or 'completeness'?
Swami Veda's work with the World Parliament of Religions and the United Nations World Council of Religious Leaders has led to presentations on both practical and timely topics, such as education and parenting for peace and spirituality in business.
His openness, depth of calm, and insight are rare. His way of teaching is personal, practical, and direct.
