Series of three Regional Baha’i Conferences to be held in November 2008 in the Indian Subcontinent

41 regional Bahá’í conferences are scheduled to take place over the next four months in cities around the globe, out of which three are taking place in India.

These unprecedented series of gatherings comes at the midway point of a five-year effort by Bahá’ís to decentralize many of their activities and organize study circles, devotional meetings, and classes for children and young people at the neighborhood level.
 
The 41 conferences - in cities from Abidjan to Yaounde, reaching geographically from Vancouver to Sao Paulo to London to Johannesburg to Ulaanbaatar to Auckland - are being held in response to a call by the Universal House of Justice, the elected body that heads the Bahá’í Faith.

In a letter to the Bahá’ís of the world announcing the conferences, the House of Justice indicated that the purpose of the gatherings is to celebrate achievements in grassroots community-building, and to discuss the lessons learned and deliberate on how to involve more people in a particular approach to improving the societies they live in - an approach that combines spiritual development with community service.
 
The long-held Bahá’í belief that material and spiritual civilization must advance together, undoubtedly has been reinforced by the world situation, the letter said.
 
Everyone is worried about what to do because the world is changing for the worse, but the answer is in the teachings of God if only we can apply them to our daily lives.

The dates of the Regional Conferences in India:

15th and 16th November in Bangalore
22nd and 23rd November in New Delhi and Kolkatta
