GANGES, MICHIGAN, May 9, 2001: The public is invited to attend a conference, "Vedanta in the Third Millennium," in western Michigan from June 22-24, 2001. Twelve senior swamis of the Ramakrishna Order will assemble at the Vivekananda Monastery and Retreat, in Ganges, Michigan, about a two-hour drive from Chicago. According to Dr. Shyam Bhatia, professor at the University of Chicago, the conference is intended primarily to "explain how the Ramakrishna-Vivekananda movement can be a part of that urge for a new spiritual age that is being felt in the West." The three-day program includes meditation, devotional bhajans, worship, Indian cultural events and a youth essay competition based on the ideals of Swami Vivekananda.
