He finally conducted his first webinar on Sept 27.v Here are some screenshots of this first trial run.

Denver Trip, Part 1

On Thursday, Acharya Arumuganathaswami and Sadhaka Jayanatha began their journey to Denver, Colorado to attend the Uberoi Conference. The annual conference is a time for experts from the four Dharmic faiths, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism, to come together and share ideas. The Foundation also gives grants for worthy projects, such as the one which sponsored our recent History of Hindu India film.

Our monks first flew to LA for a night, taking another, shorter flight the next day straight to the Rocky Mountain State. Upon arrival in Denver they made their way to Naropa University in Boulder. The first evening's event was a talk given at Naropa by Boston University's Professor of Buddhism. It was attended by students, community members and Uberoi's panel of experts. The next day was the main event, also held at the University. It too was attended by some local community members, who had come to hear the lectures given by the Uberoi Experts. It began with a blessing from our two monks, followed by a talk by Rajiv Malhotra of the Infinity Foundation. Throughout the day over 20 speakers gave their thoughts on this year's theme of "compassion."

The next day included presentations on the progress of various, foundation-funded projects, which included a showing of the History movie. The movie was very well received.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
