The Abhishiktananda Centre for Interreligious Dialogue was formed in 2008 to promote Swami Abhishiktananda’s vision, and thus his writings, in India, as well as abroad (the latter in English). As a section of a prominent NGO in India, the Delhi Brotherhood Society (DBS), it inherited the copyrights for Swamiji's titles from the former  Abhishiktananda Society. These copyrights were for those titles in the Indian languages, as well as the English titles world-wide.Since 1978 until its official closure in 2008, the Abhishiktananda Society had carried out the task of fostering Swami Abhishiktananda’s message through the publication of his books. At the same time, the world rights for languages other than English, had been entrusted to DIM/MID (Dialogue Interreligieux Monastique / Monastic Interreligious Dialogue) - who work predominantly in the West.
