A celebration of the life and work of Raimon Panikkar 2nd November 1918 - 26th August 2010 
on the occasion of the centenary of his birth.
Raimon Panikkar, son of a Spanish mother and an Indian father, lived in the midst of many cultures and religions, from India to California, in a house on the banks of the Ganges and in his native village of Tavertet in the Pyrenees, where he died a few years ago.  With work that ranges from the celebrated The Unknown Christ of Hinduism to the magnificent collection of Vedic literature, Mantramañjari, he remains one of the most prolific and influential theologians of our age.  
This celebration of the life and work of a remarkable man will include the launch of his Opera Omnia, the new collected edition of his work, by the editor, Milena Carrara Pavan; a film of one of the last interviews Panikkar gave before his death, introduced by film-maker Andrea Andriotto; plus contributions and discussion led by Professor Michael Barnes SJ, Professor Ursula King and the Rt Reverend Michael Ipgrave.

-ha dicho-, más necesitamos estar enraizados en la propia tradición
y abiertos a las demás, que nos advierten que no estamos solos
y que nos permiten alcanzar una visión más amplia de la realidad.»
