UDUPI, INDIA, May 17 (Daiji World): Sri Krishna Math in the city, which is eight centuries old, has been thoroughly renovated and reconstructed for the first time under the initiative undertaken by Paryaya Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji of Pejawar Math. The Swamiji's long-cherished dream has come true. The outer precincts of the Math, which were built of mud in the past, have been replaced with tastefully carved wooden sculptures and the height of the precincts has been increased by one level. With this, more air and light will enter Sri Krishna Math. Brahmakalashotsava as part of the renovation and reconstruction is being held on May 18 on a grand scale. Thousands of devotees pay obeisance at Sri Krishna Math every day. The Math is famous across the country and abroad. Sri Krishna Math happens to be the hub for Dwaita philosophy, which is one of the three main philosophies of Hindu religion.

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.
