Current scientific theory holds that “life” is a product of molecular interactions, and that all the difference activities of life – for example, thinking, feeling and willing – are due to coordinate chemical reactions. However, this approach has failed to explain the subtle aspects of life, such as value, meaning and purpose. A new scientific paradigm is, therefore, needed.

Bhaktivedanta Institute is sponsoring a scientific conference on the theme, “Life Comes from Life,” to be held in Vrindavana, India on Friday, October 14 through Sunday, October 16. Scientists will gather from around the world to discuss fundamental questions on the nature and origin of life. The basic theme of the conference is that life cannot be reduced to a combination of material elements. This will be discussed in the light of modern scientific theories and the Vedic knowledge. The members of the Institute hope that these discussions will provide new and stimulating insights into these important questions.
