In this meeting, Mr. Goenka spoke in various sessions on the topics like 'The future of religion', 'Death: Exploring the taboo', 'Anger and how to deal with it' and 'The meaning of true happiness'.
This book chiefly contains speeches delivered by Mr. Goenka in the World Economic Forum & Millennium World Summit, United Nations, 2000, his interview with Alan Atkisson and other discourses covered in television network and newsletters.
