Announcement about the 9th ICPNA

Theme : Science, Spirituality and Universal Peace


I am pleased to inform you that the 9th International Conference on Peace and Nonviolent Action (9th ICPNA) will be held at ANUVIBHA Jaipur Kendra, Jaipur from Dec 17 to Dec 21, 2017. The theme chosen for the above conference is Science, Spirituality and Universal Peace.

Late His Holiness Acharya Mahapragya was of the view that universal peace is impossible without spirituality. The present Anuvrat Anushashtha His Holiness Acharya Shri Mahashraman also believes that science and spirituality need to be pursued simultaneously. Many spiritual leaders also think that science and spirituality are not antithesis but are the two wheels of the same cart. No one can deny that science has transformed the planet. It has almost conquered nature and is instrumental in making human life most comfortable. Unfortunately man’s materialistic development hasn’t been commensurate with his spiritual development. On the one hand science has given us unprecedented materialistic comforts but at the same time it has also given us weapons of mass destruction which include atom bombs and intercontinental ballistic missiles that can carry nuclear weapons to distant parts of the world. Humanity has already witnessed the catastrophe of Hiroshima and Nagasaki which resulted in the killing of millions of innocent people. Only spiritually elevated persons will not use science for wars and for the gratification of their selfish ends. So, it is time we concentrated on preparing spiritual-cum-scientific human beings.

Science only explains the nature of an object, it doesn’t preach. On account of the unprecedented materialistic development man today is inclined more to moral torpor, acedia, violence, hatred and greed. The scientists like Albert Einstein favoured the integration of science and spirituality. His famous quote is “Science without religion (spirituality) is lame, religion without science is blind.” But the most celebrated modern scientist Stephen Halwking differs. He says, “There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, and science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works.” Notwithstanding those contradictory beliefs most people agree that we need to have a new human who combines both science and spirituality in him. In other words we need to have a human who has scientific outlook on life and is spiritual at heart. Only then universal peace is possible.

It has been decided to discuss this question threadbare at this most significant conference. We are inviting spiritual leaders, eminent scientists and social leaders of eminence who have been crusading against violence, hatred and human propensities for vengeance. We also intend to invite some Nobel Peace Laureates including HH The Dalai Lama. A detailed programme will be sent to those who think that they can attend this conference. If you think that you are interested in it and would like to attend it, please write to me indicating your intention giving your brief background and email ID. I will then send you the detailed brochure and a letter of invitation. The 9th ICPNA aims at deepening your insights into spirituality and providing you with a platform to share your views with the enlightened audience. The conference proposes to issue a declaration at its end which will be a blueprint for creating a world without violence by reconciling science and spirituality. Please save the dates.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Yours sincerely,

Dr. S.L. Gandhi
