Overview

This set is an unprecedented examination of religion's influence on modern life, an honest assessment of how religion can either destroy us or preserve us, and a thorough exploration of what steps might be necessary for all religions to join together as a force for good.

Convening on the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, the global congress The World's Religions after September 11 explored the negative and positive possibilities of the religious dimensions of life. The presentations from the congress have been pulled together in this set, which addresses religion's intersection with human rights, spirituality, science, healing, the media, international diplomacy, globalization, war and peace, and more. This comprehensive set includes contributions from such well-known scholars of religion as Arvind Sharma and a host of others from all the world's religious traditions. This set is an unprecedented examination of religion's influence on modern life, an honest assessment of how religion can either destroy us or preserve us, and a thorough exploration of what steps might be necessary for all religions to join together as a force for good.

Because of the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, the very concept of religion underwent a paradigm shift. Instead of standing for virtue and piety, peace and harmony, the word religion also came to be inextricably associated with evil, aggression, and terror. People around the world began to question whether the religious and secular dimensions of modern life can be reconciled, whether the different religions of the world can ever coexist in harmony. Indeed, the very future of religion itself has sometimes seemed to be uncertain, or at least suspect.

Ekalavya Multiversity an Ecumenopolis.(E.M an E)

This proposal"Ekalavya multiversity an Ecumenopolis "is for making a world city, a Democratic globe, for which we seek your co-operation. People make assets, people are our assets.
Multiversity- is a learning place, Mother earth is our school, we citizens of earth are students of life.

Ekalavya - is an ideal for volunteer learning. In the process of educating the self, we require volunteer involvement of citizens of earth. for the same we have a developed a new discipline

Humane Physics, i.e., what one need have to learn and observe in his lifetime, i.e., to grow our personality and help our fellow beings to grow out their humane personalities. which is the next step in evolution of mankind.
with 6 billion different human forms we all share a common mind and heart governed by conscience. we are all one world family.
Ecumenopolis is the concept of world city developed by constatinos A doxiadis ,
Ekistics is the science of human settlements, to dissolve the nation wise borders.
Along with existing national citizenship we can assign citizenship of earth to citizens of earth, as 9 -10 billion is the limit to human population with 2-3 billion families.

We need a Designed Habitat Globe for 9 billion humans towards sustainable future. Twenty fifty-year plans make a millennium plan. We are presently in the first of the twenty fifty-year plans, which has begun 2000- 2050A.D.

We need not have to board a space ship and go to space, indeed we are in space, and Mother Earth is our space ship. Presently she is traveling with the speed of 80,000-km/hr speed in her orbit around our Father Sun.

Earth should be made has habitable spaceship for generations to come.

E.M an E is developed for the sustainable future of Humanity. Developed by

Mr Ravi Gangadharaiah Nayaka[www.ekalavyamultiversity.blogspot.com ],
Dr A.K.Mukhopadhayay[http://www.akmukhopadhyayconsciousness.com/]
and Prof S. Sathish Rao [http://www.ergopolis.blogspot.com ]

Toward Ecumenopolis. Such cities, growing dynamically over the next two or three generations, will finally be interconnected, in one continuous network, into one universal city which we call the ecumenic city, the city of the whole inhabited earth, or Ecumenopolis. If we speak, therefore, of the cities of the future one century from now, we can state that they will have become one city, the unique city of mankind.

Since, ecumenoplis conceptually accounts for designing a humane habitat, addressing the users of equmenopolis will be a concern for understanding humane living with limited recourses. This kind of study calls for understanding through supra academic authority comprising of political, economic, social and administrative processes.Ekalavya Multiversity is a supra academic authority to ordain political, economic and Bureaucratic authorities to function justfuly in this third millennium.

Which is the next step in evolution of Mankind. Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (one world family) One basic truth about the cosmic order but there is some kind of bind, some kind of a symbiotic arrangement, some sort of synchronization, some essential inter- connectedness between any two systems. This connectedness is not merely at work in the phenomena of nature or in the inter-planetary or cosmic order but there is also an intimate connection between the astronomical, ecological ,
