<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->           Third Annual  Human Empowerment Conference
                    Houston, Texas
    Noon, Friday, September 16th - Noon, Sunday, September 18th, 2005

                CONFERENCE PROGRAM
                    Detailed

A-1. SEMINAR: "Socio-political Implications of Aryan Invasion Theory" (nicknamed "AIT" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Friday, September 16th, 2005
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:50 PM (4 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: The Masters Conference Room

Aryan Invasion Theory (AIT) has been a major pre-occupation in intellectual debates for nearly 200 years. However, AIT has not been a mere historical theorization. It has had profound social and political implications in India, fomenting (i) a divisive Dravidian movement in Tamilnadu, (ii) so-called Aryan-Dravidian divide referring to the Aryan North and the Dravidian South, (iii) caste conflicts within Hindu society, and (iv) stereotyping of tribes as original settlers. Debunking of AIT is the first step in resolving the myriad social and political problems that it has created.

B-1. SEMINAR: "An Alternative Framework for Temple Management in India" (nicknamed "India Temples" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Friday, September 16th, 2005
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:50 PM (4 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: The Legends Conference Room

A government should have no role in the management of temples, as is presently the case  all across India. The current situation is responsible for corruption, looting of temple properties and income, and lack of attention to the mission of education and social renewal of the Hindu society. There is a need to liberalize, decentralize and democratize the management of temples in India. Let the temple income help the poor Hindus in education, health and other human services.

Session Chair: Abhinav Dwivedi
Session Coordinator: Jayendra Ganguli

A-2. SEMINAR: "Towards an Egalitarian Society: Issues of Jaati and Varna" (nicknamed "Jaati/Varna" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Friday, September 16th, 2005
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:50 PM (4 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: The Masters Conference Room

Jaati (aka Caste) among Hindus today has evolved over the centuries shaped by ideological, historical, political and socio-economic processes. Jaati which is often confused with the Varna system mentioned in the Smrithis, in today's Hindu society it is said to be associated with exploitation and prejudice. The issue of caste is eating away into the vitals of the Hindu society. If the Hindu society has to survive a new social system must evolve over time.

Date: Friday, September 16th, 2005
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:50 PM (4 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: The Legends Conference Room

Millions of mainstream Americans engage in spiritual practices that are Indic and Dharmic in nature, including Yoga and meditation. Indic ideas have much to offer to social and political life as well. With the help of Indic ideas and integrating Dharma in social, political and economic fields, America can build its own unique civilizational paradigm that is independent of Europe. Consequently, Hindu-Americans have a giant role to play in the re-discovering of America.

Date: Friday, September 16th, 2005
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:50 PM (4 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: Meeting Room 501 (2nd Bldg, 2nd Floor)

The practitioners of Dharma are being subjected to severe strain throughout the world in general, and the U.S. in particular. The campaign against Dharmic society is being carried at all levels, including intellectual and physical. Highly spiritual saints with no connection to politics are being targeted on flimsiest of the pretexts. Case in point being the recent attack against Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at University of  Massachusetts. The workshop will consist of a comprehensive threat assessment, case studies, tactical and strategic planning, and preparatory exercises.

Session Chair: Jyotish Parekh

Location: The Masters and the Legends Joint Conference Room

From Argument to Practical Conclusion: The Hindu case against Christianity

The Hindu argument against Christianity has focused on three elements. Each of these lines of argument is fair enough, but the question in each case is: what are their implications for an effective Hindu policy vis-à-vis Christianity?

Firstly, the Christian missionary drive has been denounced as a form of violence by Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi, Ram Swarup, Devendra Swarup of the VHP, Swami Dayananda Saraswati of Coimbatore and others, and this judgment has found support in documentation by various neutral agencies, the best-known of which was the 1950s' Niyogi Committee.  It is tempting to deduce from this the demand to prohibit conversion by law, which raises the question whether this would be in conflict with the Hindu tradition of pluralism and toleration.

     Secondly, the flawed human rights record of Christianity and its involvement with various imperialisms has been documented by scholars such as A.K. Priolkar, K.M. Panikkar, Ishwar Sharan, Sita Ram Goel and Arun Shourie.  Lazy-minded Hindus have extended this critique into a shrill rhetoric identifying Christianity with "white racism", "CIA tactics" and the like, and at any rate identifying it as "foreign", losing their focus on Christianity itself and shifting it to external items with which it may be (or, in most cases, have been) associated.  The missionaries have long bypassed these anachronistic polemicists and advertise their product as the religion of the oppressed, the Dalits and Adivasis.  Both sides are beating around the bush: social reform and anti-oppressive policies are not intrinsic to Christianity anymore than its temporary association with Europe or the USA, and in any case neither could make it the one true and salvific religion.  It remains useful to highlight the record of Christian atrocity as a significant (and failed) test of its ethical claims, but this should never be taken as a substitute for the central objection to Christian doctrine, still entirely valid in Christianity's post-colonial and post-atrocity phase, viz. that its defining beliefs are untrue.

     Thirdly, the Western scholarly critique of the doctrinal contradictions and oddities in the core teachings of Christianity and the crucial role of scriptural manipulation and history distortion in the genesis of its defining text corpus has been introduced in India by Swami Dayananda Saraswati of the Arya Samaj and others of his generation, and has been seriously studied, adapted to and expanded with specifically Hindu viewpoints by Ram Swarup, Sita Ram Goel and Arun Shourie.  If Hindu society is to stem the advances of Christian expansionism, it needs to make these findings widely known on a war footing.  This matter gets slightly complicated, however, by other findings which have been embraced and highlighted by sentimental "equal truth of all religions" Hindus (and in a more measured doses by the great scholar A.K. Coomaraswamy) as well as by Western New-Agers, viz. the presence of highly unorthodox elements in the oldest and largely apocryphal layer of Christian scripture, some of which demonstrably have a common origin with certain Hindu-Buddhist teachings, while others have their origin in the variety of teachings flourishing in the Hellenistic world and with which Hindus need not have any quarrel. These elements of a lost proto-Christianity, greatly at variance with the actual Christianity propagated by the Churches for about 17 centuries and now by the missionaries in India, should not be used to lull Hindus into disarming against Christian aggression.  Rather, they should remind everyone that spirituality is a universal potential of all mankind, and that the confrontation with Hinduism can encourage Christians to go and rediscover both their pre-Christian and proto-Christian roots.

A-5. SEMINAR/WORKSHOP: "Social Issues"
(nicknamed "Social Issues" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 8:00 AM - 9:50 AM (2 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: The Masters Conference Room

A number of social issues faced by the Hindu society at large have ideological determinants. The loss of Dharma is automatic and self-evident in case of inter-faith marriages if the spouse belongs to an exclusivistic and doctrinaire belief system such as Judiasm, Christianity and Islam, whereas inter-faith marriages within pluralistic traditions such as Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto and Confucian preserve Dharma. The complexity of the problem increases with the Hindu tendency for anachronistic practices such as caste endogamy, and on the other hand advocacy of inter-faith ethno-racial unions based on a non-existent "South Asian" identity driven by Bollywood counter-culture, by certain anti-Hindu ideological groups. The session will focus on problem diagnosis, probable remedies and effective methodologies.

Session Chair: Uma Mysorekar
Session Moderator: Indrani Rampersad
Session Coordinator: Radhika Suda

A-6. SEMINAR/WORKSHOP: "Challenges to Temples and Hindu Society in
America"
(nicknamed "U.S. Temples" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:50 AM (2 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: The Masters Conference Room

Temples have a specific purpose in the Hindu tradition. In the American materialistic society, Hindu temples have often been subjected to an existentialistic strain. There have been efforts to change the character of Hindu temples in North America. There have been demands from de-Hinduized patrons to "secularize" Hindu temples in many ways.  Hindu philosophy does allow for diversity in practice based on region, time and circumstance. However, evolving a new North American Hindu tradition must uphold Dharma at all costs. This is a challenge that must be taken up by the Hindu society in North America collectively.

Session Chair: Indrani Rampersad
Session Moderator: Uma Mysorekar
Session Coordinator: Vinod Srinivasan

B-5. WORKSHOP: "Awareness and Media"
(nicknamed "Awareness and Media" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

(nicknamed "U.S. Temples" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 8:00 AM - 11:50 AM (4 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: Meeting Room 501 (2nd Bldg, 2nd Floor)

"Ideonomy" (or 'Science of Ideas' ; Ref - http://ideonomy.mit.edu) as a
substitute for Ideology will be explored, and contextualized to the current Dharmic ideological imperative. The workshop will consist of assessment and  literature review, listing and specialization of authors, classification of subjects, plans to identify talents and groom new authors, review of publications and publishing houses, ways to provide access to publishing outlets, classify and institutionalize the functional processes, and ways to procure funding and support.

Session Chair: Koenraad Elst

Location: The Masters and the Legends Joint Conference Room

Islam's Weakness

It is now recognized that a multi-front jihad has been underway to Islamize India and bring it under Islam's control permanently, this time. This islamization drive appears to be supported by a large percentage of Indian Muslim population and by neighboring Muslim nations. Islamists have skillfully taken advantage of weaknesses among majority Hindus thus far. In fact, it appears that currently India is under an Islamic siege. That may be changing. The recent Ayodhya attack by Islamists may signal further attacks on India's economic interests, Hindu majority religious institutions and organizations. Such attacks may finally present an opportunity for majority Hindus to mobilize behind the fear of Islamic terror and wage a counter-jihad. Despite some daring successful acts of terror, by and large, Muslim communities and nations remain weak and disorganized outside of their religious institutions. These are the weaknesses of Islam. The strength of Islam is its religious institutions and the clerical leadership. On this basis, thus far Muslim communities have terrorized the civilization world over.  In the next stage of the war on terror, powerful western nations, awoke by the recent brutal London
terror acts, will work to neutralize Islam's strength -- its religious institutions. In India's case too the majority community will have to initiate a counter-offensive on Islam's power structure within India. Capable and resource-rich Indian Diaspora will play an important role in aiding the majority.

Presenter: Moorthy Muthuswamy

C-7. WORKSHOP: "Granting Agency"
(nicknamed "Granting Agency" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:50 PM (4 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: Meeting Room 501 (2nd Bldg, 2nd Floor)

The output of ideonomical processes is often not tangible that can be sensed with senses, or measured in quantitative terms. In absence of quantitave measurements, such projects invariably suffer from funds. There are several other factors that play into distancing the donors from such projects. Individual donors are most often not aware of the issues, and end up funding projects that are often working against their wishes. Funding for ideonomical projects is difficult to materalize. New ideas and methods of fund-raising are needed. The objectives are: (i) identify issues that need to be addressed to create a successful model, (ii) find new ways to arouse donors' interest in funding ideonomical projects, (iii) evolve new processes, institutionalize them, and (iv) remove ad-hocism. The workshop will simulate a real world scenario. The group will setup a mock funding agency named "ABC Foundation" (ABCF) and simulate all granting and accounting processes. Two researchers will submit mock proposals to ABCF.

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:50 PM (2 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: The Masters Conference Room

Islam is a global problem. There are no local solutions to a global problem. The only basis of unity amongst the victims of Jihad happens to be Secular Humanism. An intellectual and   political defense for the victims of Jihad based on Secular Humanism is needed.

Session Chair: Vinod Kumar
Session Coordinator: Vijay Kumar

B-8. Organizational Presentations

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:50 PM (2 hrs w/ breaks)

A-9. Concept Presentation - 'Dharmalaya' : An Instrument of Building
Temporal Dharmic Congregations
(nicknamed "Dharmalaya" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 4:00 PM - 4:50 PM (1 hr w/ breaks)
Location: The Masters Conference Room

Traditionally, a Mandir/Chaitya/Vihara/Gurudwara in a village has served as a place of congregation for adherents of Dharma (Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Sikhs alike). Both, the spiritual and temporal life revolved around the village Temple. In the modern context, the content and character of the Dharmic population has changed dramatically. The line between spiritual and temporal affairs has become increasingly visible. At present, the spiritual congregational needs are being fulfilled by a variety of institutions, such as satsangs, bhajan mandalis, ashramas, mathas, alongwith traditional temples. However, there has been a dramatic erosion in the temporal content of temples and all such congregations. Temples do not address the temporal issues facing the Dharmic society any more.  Although, there is a case for temple reform, given the current state of the Dharmic societies, it would be impractical to assume that merely temple reform would bring all Dharmic peoples back to the temples. Further, the Dharmic societies have gone beyond the borders of Bharatvarsha, and adherents of Dharma live in highly diverse national societies.  Thus, there is a need to build a new institution for temporal congregation of practitioners of Dharma.

Session Chair: Abhinav Dwivedi
Presenters: Pankaj Kumar, Milan Patel

B-9. Concept Presentation - 'pax indica' : An Instrument to Establish an
Indic World Order
(nicknamed "pax indica" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 4:00 PM - 4:50 PM (1 hr w/ break)
Location: The Legends Conference Room

To establish an Indic world order as a goal, a suitable structure is required - hence 'pax indica' is envisioned as a non-formal network of Indophiles -- professionals, doctors, lawyers, academicians, journalists, entreprenuers, bureaucrats, public servants, who would come together in a non-partisan way with the express purpose of serving India's interest, and towards establishing an Indic world order. 'pax indica' would compete with already-established world lobbies, viz. ADAE - Anglo-Dutch Aristrocratic Elite, the Jewish world lobby, the Chinese world lobby, and the Arab/Muslim petro-dollar lobby.

Session Chair: Adityan Kulshreshtha
Presenters: Mayank Shekhar and Krishna V. Murali

C-9. WORKSHOP: "Workers Training"
(nicknamed "Workers Training" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:50 PM (4 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: Meeting Room 501 (2nd Bldg, 2nd Floor)

Several activities are being carried out by the activists in the U.S. that are political and socio-economic in nature. These cover the entire spectrum from intellectual-oriented to action-oriented activities including but not limited to media and other awareness related activities. The activists are highly motivated to take up activities and are passionate in their belief system. They also happen to be highly individualistic and disorganized.  For achieving effectiveness in ideological and social work, teamwork is essential. The challenge is to transform the individualism of the social activists into teamwork leading to corporatization of the social activism sector. The social sector must work as efficiently as the corporate sector, without the incentive of monetary compensation and name. Personnel of Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini, Mumbai, who train social workers in India have contexualized their training course to the American context, and will offer it as a pilot course for the first time in the U.S. The course covers the following aspects: (a) Motivational, (b) Ideological , © Behavoural, (d) Operational, and (d) Managerial.

Session Chair: Manohar Shinde
Instructor: Vinay Sahasrabuddhe

A-10. Strengthening Religious Pluralism against a Singular Global Mission
(nicknamed "Religious Pluralism" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 5:00 PM - 6:50 PM (2 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: The Masters Conference Room

Religious pluralism and acceptance of spiritual diversity was one of the core universal human values practiced by the civilizations throughout the ages, until the advent of one-God ideologies in West Asia. The agents of one-God Semitic ideologies have annihilated most of the ancient pluralistic traditions except one that is India. There have been renewed efforts to complete the conquest of the world by the agents of one-God by focusing on India. If religious pluralism has to survive as a living tradition, the Singular Global Mission must be countered and defeated. As India is the only land that still stands tall against the onslaught of the Singular Mission, the rollback of the Mission must start in India, and then propagated elsewhere.

Session Chair: Sudarshan Venkatraman
Session Coordinator: Murthy Ammanamanchi

B-10.  SEMINAR/WORKSHOP: "Rising India: Challenges and Opportunities"
(nicknamed "Rising India" on the Conference Program Summary Sheet)

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005
Time: 5:00 PM - 6:50 PM (2 hrs w/ breaks)
Location: The Legends Conference Room

India is going through unprecedented times. As Indian economy is making giant leaps it is bound to encounter fresh challenges. The new challenges would be more complex than the past ones. There is a need to consolidate the gains, and build up structures and defenses such that India can meet these complex challenges at present and in future. There is also a need to think beyond an empowered India in strategic terms. What should be India's place in the world? How do we ensure protection of India's interest in the long run. In the past, a prosperous but inward looking India crumbled with succeeding waves of barbaric external onslaughts. If India continues to look inwards, the history would repeat itself. Therefore, this time around, aligned with its economic growth, India should think in geo-strategic terms and go beyond its borders. The question is what should be the paradigm for India's engagement with the world?

An extrovert India would use its own native genius to define its relationship to the world. Unlike Anglo-American Imperialism and Chinese hegemony, India would rise in world affairs as the fountainhead of new thought process that would lead in minimization of conflict and maximization of economic growth and prosperity. A world order based on Indic thought will ensure maximum attainable peace and prosperity, with India being the center of the Universe. It is the thought that generates action. Hence, a universalistic non-dualistic Indic thought has the potential to establish a world order that will take the dialectics (North vs. South, Rich vs. Poor, first world vs. 3rd world, white vs. non-white, christian vs.  non-christian, ..) out of world affairs.
