Hello Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami,
I met you during the last few hours of HMEC 2011 in Columbus, Ohio in September. I was/am one of the youths from Toronto. I really enjoyed your talk on the 14 common questions that Hindus may be asked about our religion. I really liked how you broke down the responses into three sizes: " the tweet, the elevator pitch and the rotary club response." I was wondering if you have and if possible, a copy of that presentation you could send me?
Yes, I remember you and than you for the kind words about our presentations. I put the 15-minute highly graphic Keynote presentation I gave here for you and others to download and use in your local communities:

There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
