Since then, it has been held several times in India and once in USA. This conference was held for the first time in Europe, in Geseke (Germany), in the week of Guru Purnima 2010. The lectures and discussions, normally given exclusively on Indian spiritual traditions, have been augmented with speakers coming from the West.

divine being, with the relationship between God and man, (Paramatman
and Jivatman), with the study of religious and philosophical texts.

Nada signifies all areas of music and the world of sound, including music
theory, therapeutical and spiritual aspects of music, and the concept of
Naada as the primordial sound permeating the universe.

Bhakti – DEVOTION

Bhakti is studied in theological texts such as the Epics and Puranas, which
describe mythological legends of Gods. It can also be learnt from many
stories of devotion of saints and mystics.

practices such as Hatha Yoga, Kriya Yoga, Kundalini Yoga etc. The Christian
