Threads is not a religious conference and the term Hindu refers only to a people and a civilization. The conference is educational in character. It is about reaching out and engaging with the American community to shape a collective future.
During the 3-day conference, there will be panel discussions on a number of topics, including arts and aesthetics, Industry and Commerce, Public Service and Advocacy, Holistic Living, Technology and Entrepreneurship, Medicine and Biotechnology, and Science of Consciousness, among other topics.
