ORLANDO, FLORIDA, May 17, 2017 (Press Release): The Hindu University of America, Orlando, USA, organized a two-day international conference on May 4 and 5, 2017, on the theme Relevance of Sri Aurobindo and the Grand Visions of the Ancient Indian Wisdom. Twenty-six speakers from India and the US participated in the conference and focused on various aspects of Sri Aurobindo's philosophy and its relevance for the contemporary world.
The conference aimed at a discussion of Sri Aurobindo's perspectives on the intersection of spirituality and practicality towards a better organization of human life and society. The deliberations positioned his ideas in theoretical and policy debates on individual, state, society and world. Despite the profundity of his philosophy and its wider implications, Sri Aurobindo and his ideas are relatively less known in the West, and there have been few events to make an in-depth study of his philosophy. The conference was a step towards filling this gap.
