Dr Vishal Mangalwadi's lecture tour of Australia

I have just received the following News Release:

‘Truth and Transformation’ Tour: 8 - 16 October 2011
India’s C.S. Lewis, Dr Vishal Mangalwadi, to visit Australia

Dr Vishal Mangalwadi is a philosopher from India, at present based in the USA. He will be holding his first Australian media conference at the NSW Parliament on Monday 10 October 2011 at 12 Midday. Dr Vishal Mangalwadi is a prominent international professor, speaker across 36 countries, a regular media commentator in the States and author of 14 books. His latest title is ‘The Book that Made Your World’.

Vishal is a man with a prophetic voice and a compassionate heart. Some have called him the “CS Lewis of the East”. Born in India in 1949 he studied philosophy at universities, in Hindu ashrams, and at L’Abri Fellowship in Switzerland. In 1976 he turned down several job offers in the West to return to India where he and his wife, Ruth, founded a community to serve the rural poor. Vishal was put in gaol by corrupt provincial officials for his stand for the poor and for the truth. Undeterred, Vishal continued his involvement in community development, serving at the headquarters of two national political parties, where he worked for the empowerment and liberation of the poor and lower castes.

Dr Mangalwadi’s current focus is ‘The Decline of the West’ where he relates that when the Bible, as the moral compass of our Western culture, is removed as a positive influence on society, there is a moral decline. In his talks he poses the question, ‘Must the Sun Set on the West?’ He accompanies this with some observations on other social topics such as the questionable integrity of our national leaders, the decline of innovation, education concerns, the family, finance and justice.

In Australia

Dr Mangalwadi has been invited to speak to a variety of audiences on the values that made Australia great. He is the speaker at the inaugural William Wilberforce Luncheon to be held at NSW Parliament House, Macquarie St, Sydney from 12:30pm – 2pm on 10 October 2011. Dr Mangalwadi will be part of some presentations to honour NSW Parliamentarians for their stand for life, family, faith and freedom. His new release, “The Book that Made Your World” will be part of the presentation.

Dr Vishal Mangalwadi is in Australia from 8 – 16 October for the “Truth and Transformation Tour” which has been organised by the Australian Christian Values Institute. During the tour Dr Mangalwadi will be speaking in Federal Parliament, Canberra, NSW Parliament, Queensland Parliament and also in Sydney, Wollongong, Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra. Dr Mangalwadi is also the keynote speaker for the Australian Christian Lobby National Conference being held in Canberra 14 - 15 October.

Dr Vishal Mangalwadi is available for media commentary.
