Some of India’s most renowned figures shared the stage this week on the occasion of Bharath Vidhya Bhavan‘s 35th year anniversary gala.
Bharat Vidhya Bhavan was originally founded in India by the visionary Dr. K.M.Munshi with the blessing of Mahatma Gandhi in order to revive the true Indian culture, heritage and education suppressed for centuries by foreign powers. The non-profit organization promotes the rich traditions of Indian art forms, music, dance, drama, painting and films, as well as Indian languages, literature and studies of religion and different systems of philosophy. The organization has more than 60 branches, a wide variety of educational institutions, and more than 1000 publications on varied subjects, such as scriptures, epics, history, religious, philosophy, culture and other subjects of public interest.
For this week’s anniversary event, held in NYC, Sadhguru joined as Guest of Honor alongside Chief Guest Dr. Deepak Chopra.
Best-selling recording artist, composer, producer and humanitarian A.R. Rahman was also in attendance, receiving honors for his worldwide contribution to music and humanity. Rahman’s award-winning works for film and stage are noted for integrating Eastern classical music with electronic music, world music and traditional orchestral arrangements.
Chandrika Tandon, Grammy-nominated contemporary world musician of Soul Chants Music, offered a performance and also moderated a lively interactive discussion between Chopra and Sadhguru on “Ancient Wisdom in Modern Times”.
