Seer to attend international convention

By Our Staff Correspondent

CHITRADURGA, APRIL 8. Sri Shivamurthy Shivacharya Swamiji of Sri Sirigere Mutt will be participating as a special guest in the International Convocation to be held in Washington D.C. from April 11 to 16, on an invitation from the U.S.-based International Federation of World Peace (IIFWP).

The theme of the convocation is "Leadership for global transformation: exploring the vision, methodology, and best practices necessary for a new era of lasting peace." The conference will explore ways to further the cause of world peace, according to communication from the IIFWP.

The convocation will bring together hundreds of distinguished leaders from several countries. Participants include current and former heads of State, Government and Parliament leaders, religious leaders, diplomats, scholars, and other eminent dignitaries. The programme will consist of a series of presentations outlining a new vision of peace. The co-sponsors of the convocation are The Washington Times Foundation, United Press International, the World Association of Non-Governmental Organisations, and the Mongolian Peoples' Federation for World Peace.

The founder of the IIFWP has called for the establishment of a Peace Council or "Peace U.N." to provide a model institution for global governance that could effectively solve critical global problems, applying a cooperative, collaborative, and inclusive methodology that would go beyond particular national and religious interests to embrace and serve the hopes and aspirations of all humanity.
