The Center for Indic Studies, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth is organizing a 4-day international seminar “Twenty-first International Congress of Vedanta (21Vedanta)” during July 11-14, 2013.
The International Congress of Vedanta, founded in 1986 by Professor S. S. Rama Rao Pappu of the Department of Philosophy at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, is now located at the Center for Indic Studies, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
For over two decades, International Congress of Vedanta has been the focal point for meeting of scholars specializing in all aspects of Indian philosophy and religion. In the past, the Congress has also celebrated the birth centennial of S. Radhakrishnan (1988), the 1200 anniversary of Sri Sankaracharya (1990), the centennial of Swami Vivekananda’s sojourn to America and his participation in the World Parliament of Religions (1992), birth centennial of J. Krishnamurti (1995), and the 700 anniversary of sanjeewan samadhi of Sri Jnaneswara (1996).
Previous international Vedanta Conferences were also held in JNU, New Delhi, Chennai, Rishikesh, Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam in India, and in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, in order to facilitate better interaction between scholars in India and the West.
The Vedanta Congress continues its tradition of bringing scholars of Indic traditions from India and the West together on a platform regularly. The organizational details of the conference are handled by the Center for Indic Studies of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
