URI Sisters and Brothers, Families weep at the loss of loved ones. People walk the streets fearful that each vehicle could be an instrument of their death. Extremists celebrate their accomplishment of murdering and maiming innocent people. This kind of violence that our sisters and brothers in Spain have experienced is not new for them or for the world.

The murder of innocents rips at our souls and calls us to come together in support of one another and to reaffirm our common humanity and the values that promote...

Sensationalising love, harmony and interfaith, we at URI North Zone India and Afghanistan held our Regional Assembly on 29th and 30th July in New Delhi. With the theme of the assembly as Celebrating Hope and Valuing Grassroots Voices – Energising the Interfaith Network, it brought together community service providers, whose work is mostly silent and away from the radar and glare of the media.

Contemplative Life reinvents the wheel? In designing, populating, and driving a massive Web initiative that brings together teachers and practitioners of all the world’s contemplative practices in one centralized hub, how is it that Contemplative Life is really just reinventing the wheel? Well, we’re not. We’re doing something entirely new. But we do walk in the footsteps of a great lineage of human inventors, from the moment a frustrated Neanderthal said to herself “How am I supposed to cut this meat without a knife?” to the day Gutenberg’s boss blurted “I need thirty copies of this document by noon,” our brilliant...
