Did you know that one person in every six on earth is Indian? While China may have the largest population in the world, India has the youngest; soon India will be the most important country in the world. It is already the world’s largest democracy and a regional nuclear superpower, but its deep and unique philosophical tradition stands India in contrast to the West. From yoga to meditation, from traditional medicine to modern literature, history, language, food, religion and architecture, India is different.

Increasingly, millions of Westerners are looking to India and Indian culture and spiritualism as an alternative way to live their lives. The vast Indian Diaspora is fast becoming the world’s most successful tribe in finance, business, mathematics and the arts.
