International Conference on
Elevating Consciousness through Meditation
for Global Harmony
1-3 August, 2019
We live in a contentious world that is challenged by strife, discord and conflict. There is a compelling need to come together, reconcile differences and establish a state of equanimity so that peace, inclusiveness and harmony prevail.
Perhaps one way of accomplishing this is by elevating the quality of our communication, which binds us together as human beings. Elevating communication can happen only by elevating consciousness. Such elevation makes it possible for us to effect an expansion from the outer to include the inner, from the world of thought to encompass the world of feeling, and from the head to include the heart.
The great Swami Vivekananda once said, “Consciousness is a mere film between two oceans, the subconscious and superconscious.”
When we meditate properly and regulate our minds, our consciousness evolves. The Heartfulness Guide, Kamlesh Patel, also known as Daaji, says that it is through meditation alone that we move from the complexity of the mind to the simplicity of the heart. It is through this process also that we develop Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence, described by Daniel Goleman, so highly valued in today’s management culture.
Can this be put into practice in our daily lives? Can consciousness be elevated to enable us to live from our higher energies? Can working professionals and business leaders become forerunners in creating a new world order where the ‘love and wisdom of their inner world’ inspires ‘outer advancement’?
The organisers of this unique conference – the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore and the Heartfulness Institute – believe that the answers to all these questions are yes. It is this belief that has brought us together to organise an event for all individuals and institutions working in the direction of higher consciousness to prevail.
