Introduction

The events of September 11, 2001 are etched in the collective consciousness of our generation and ineffaceable from modern memory. They also brought to the fore the issue of the role of religion in the present day world. A global congress on World’s religious After September 11 was held in Montreal from 11-15 September 2006 to explore this issue further and to examine whether religious could also be a force for good, notwithstanding he current opprobrium which attached to it. A total of 225 speakers participated in over 8 workshops, 18 plenary sessions, 47 panels and 236 individual presentations over the five days of this congress, which attracted 2025 participants from 84 countries.

I hope the readers will welcome the sampling of material presented at this congress, now offered through the medium of this volume. It also includes the text of the universal Declaration of human rights, which was released at this congress for discussion in the academic and faith communities.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
