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:

Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
