Every year scholars from different countries get together for the International Ramayana Conference (IRC). The conference includes presentations on various themes and workshops based on Ramayana. The IRC was held in India three times, two times in Thailand and one time each in Canada, Nepal, Mauritius, Surinam, Belgium, Indonesia, the Netherlands, China, Trinidad & Tobago and the US. The year 2000 meeting discussed, among other things, the supremacy of the Ramayana philosophy and its significance to the whole humankind in the 21st century. The tireless efforts of Shri Lallan Prasad Vyas in popularizing Ramayan around the world in 20th century cannot be under-estimated.
