Plenary Talk: Title: Vedic Symbolism and Human Society today. Abstract: The interplay of beings, deities and entities in the Vedas, constantly struggling between the three plays of expressive consciousness -Satyam, Rtam, Brhat is explained in terms of the planes and parts of the human being as an individual and as a part of society. This paper highlights the wars and the harmonies between the different Vedic entities, which represent the inner evolutionary struggle of the individual and collective being. The crucial role of the inner 'Agni' and its importance in Self and Societal development is highlighted while understanding the 'Yajna' as an inner journey that each of us is compelled to undertake for the sake of perfection and evolution in our everyday existence. It particularly addresses India's problems and its solutions in the light of the geo-political plays of forces in the world today. THESE FACETS WILL BE INTERPRETED IN A LANGUAGE SUITED TO TODAYS INTELLECTUAL YOUTH WITH PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS TO DEAL WITH MODERN DAY PROBLEMS.

This paper summaries the experiences and Vedic methodologies used in the unique accomplishment of having trained over 4000 teachers in public and private schools across India and introducing new paradigms for education in existing schools and well as new experimental efforts for Unesco. The paper also reminiscences my experiments with school and college students and the success stories using Vedic "inputs" and techniques of learning. The program was designed to fulfill the modern goal of developing multipleintelligences for enhancing cognitive abilities of mind. It was also used for facilitating the holistic absorption and processing of sensory, intellectual and emotional inputs from our outer and inner environments.
Shruti's Mantra Concert 'Journey of the Spirit in Sound' . A meditative musical journey with Shruti with Mantric Music and Spiritual Poetry, Invoking Multifaceted Expressions of Divinity with Timeless Sanskrit Stotrams and Vedic Mantras. About Mantra Japa: The Mantra is an "intended" ordering of vibrations, which creates quietude in the being of the hearer or the receiver. It is a Word of Power born out of the depths of being, meditated upon and then permeated into the atmosphere and space with the action of Pranic energy. Its intent, intonation, rhythm and meter all act from the unfathomable, intangible layers of our being down to every microscopic physical cell, leading to transformation, healing and harmony.
