PAMHO AGTSP AGTHPS
I hope you are in good health or best as is possible.
I’m writing by Arjuna Das' requirement, your disciple in charge of ASA and NIOS Chile.
Universidad Católica Aesthetics Institute has sent an invitation to you and NIOS to participate in an online congress they are organizing for october this year, with the same approach they were working with you et al. during 2019.
This year event its called “Colloquium: Nature and Sacrality, Human Stillness, Animal and Vegetal Action”
Your theme last year was “Bhagavat and the Ecology Light of Asia”
Will be a 4 days online symposium through ZOOM with audience, one time by week divided by subject matter every wednesday at 6 pm Chile time, 5 pm Nashville time:
October 7: Christianism
October 14: Tribal and Indigenous Traditions
October 21: The Asian Vision
October 28: Action and Contingency
The final deadline date to deliver your theme and proposal its Friday july 24th.
Arjuna Das is coordinating directly with organizers into UC, but he asked to me I write this “formal” summary to let you know and also your disciples, followers and well-wishers.
There are the possibility that your disciple Abhirama Thakur Das and your Friend Héctor Bejar they also participate in this seminar. So, ABRTD has already been informed. He will send a letter to you in a few hours more about it.
UC pretends to publicate all these colloquium dialogues into their Aesthesis Magazine special edition.
I include an abstract of their invitation and also original file invitation pictures attached.
Thank you very much for everything you do for all of us.
Your aspiring servant,
The goal of this online meetings is to initiate an interreligious dialogue between the american indigenous, christian and asian world and people involved into ecological action, based on sacred space conception, protection of environment and interrelation of human beings with nature from the philosophical, religious and aesthetics diverse points of view.
Reducing CO2 emissions and confinement of humans seem to be a source of relief for biodiversity and reappropriation by animals of their environment, wondering us what would happen if this period were a turning points for humanity.
Problems that affect humanity today, such as global warming, climate change, loss of biodiversity, forest fires, among others, will still present and continue there after we emerge from the global health emergency this pandemic has caused.
It is a call to share knowledgement and reflections based on religious education experience, performance of rites, arts and cultures researching and about concrete actions of projects actually in development. Allow dialogue between various manifestations, providing society other ways of attending to and apprehending the return to innerself of being for external expansion of nature, appreciating the interrelation of dualities (feminine-masculine, natural-supernatural, sacred- profane, religious-secular), without taking any of them to extreme, but allowing harmonious balance.
HpS - AgtSP!!! Thank you so much for this effort. We got information of this symposium in another letter from ArtD and made an answer (https://monkeywarrior.com/detail/11348/) that we didn't understand the content of the symposium. Now with this Abstract it is more clear.
O.K. We can plan to participate. The following is a good title and summary of our article?
"Bhagavad-gita and a Cosmovision of the Web of Life"
Cutting the top off of a destructive weed does little to destroy its influence if the same weed will regrow quickly within a few days from an every enhanced root. The "Bhagavad-gita" and vast resources of the Sanskrit culture of ancient India, present a very penetrating view of our relation to celestial, human, subhuman and non-living matter, how they are energetically related and what is the fundamental motive of their relationship.
Once these broad structual and dynamic bases are clear, then working out the details of managing the ecology and resources becomes easy, like adjusting the position of painter's easel to take advantage of the sun's light.
