The Bhaktivedanta Institute, Bangalore, holds academic conferences on various topics often in partnership with other academic institutions or departments. These take place at various venues within Bangalore and will typically comprise a combination of invited plenary speakers and short papers selected by means of a Call for Papers.
Dr. T. D. Singh, the founding director of Bhaktivedanta Institute and a pioneer in science-spirituality dialogue, envisioned that Bangalore, being the home to many educational and research institutions and therefore fostering the intellectual manpower, is a fertile ground for promoting the interface between science and spirituality. As a part of his 81 years’ Birth Anniversary celebrations, we plan to organize the 2nd Annual Conference “Fusion 2019”.
About the Conference
The' FUSION' Annual Conference hosts professionals, research scholars and students to network, share ideas, and discover new approaches in synthesizing science and spirituality. Here you’ll have access to the gathering of your peers. People who you can relate to, learn from, and actively contribute towards the holistic approach in all fields of learning in art, science, philosophy, physics, chemistry, psychology, economics, politics, etc. in the quest for ultimate reality.
The aim of the conference is to promote the interface between science and spirituality, especially to the younger generation. Students are the future of our society. They are being taught the valuable latest scientific and technological developments in various disciplines but are too often lacking the spiritual foundation. This imbalance is a major factor for unrest, unnatural habits, and suicide tendencies, as widely observed among the youth nowadays. In a humble attempt to bridge this gap, we are hosting this conference to encourage the balanced growth of scientific temper and spiritual wisdom.
The 2019 Conference on ‘Spirituality and Health’ invites health care practitioners, scholars, religious community leaders, and students to exchange ideas about the relationship of spirituality with quality of life and well being from a scientific perspective.
