Note from Editors

Vedas present a 10,000 years of continuous intellectual tradition and a virtual goldmine of research material for serious scholars of Indic tradition. In today's context where 'modern' scientific research seems have hit a dead end, Vedas need a comprehensive relook and packaging in the contemporary lingo for larger benefit. The younger generation today needs Vedas much more now than it did earlier. How is the relevance of something we consider good to be established for a sceptical new world is the big question ancient civilizations like India have to answer. Since the new world takes pride in scepticism, argumentation, science and technology, we may perhaps think of offering Veda in a new platter to our younger generation. It is this idea that the organizers of the International Veda Conference agreed to take up as a challenge.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
