Gurudev Shri Amritji, led an energizing session for the students and delegates on ‘Happiness and Bliss’ and Love & Relationships. Amritji also touched on yoga as a modification of the mind and its essence as a spiritual discipline. He said that spirituality is important to bring a balance, both inside and outside. Yoga doesn’t begin with physical exercise but begins with meditation. The ultimate integration of oneness is Yoga which is a spiritual discipline. spirituality treats the causes while science has given the means to treat and do not address the causes.
Dr. Pankaj Gupta, President, IIHMR University, spoke on ‘Swabhav to Swadharma’ in which he underlined the objectives of life. He said that the source of happiness is within us and we need to find your own happiness. We must learn to give and not demand. Nobody can complete you; but we are complete on our own. He defined unconditional love as natural and self-sufficient.
Shri. Kamini Devi (Ph.D.), Executive Director, Amrit Yoga Institute, Florida, took a workshop on Stress Management’ for the students. She said that when tension and relaxation are out of balance, it creates illness. Our body is designed to bear stress for 60-90 seconds but the tension we create in our mind stays with us for a longer period. Things are not creating stress but resistance to things causes stress.We should bring ourselves back from resistance to acceptance. To control stress, we practice mindfulness or meditation.
Prof. (Dr.) Sanjeev P. Sahni, Principal Director, OP Jindal Global University, led a stimulating session and said that 99% of what we learn in our childhood comes from our parents. Our beliefs, judgement, opinions and morality together form our attitude. Our success or failure depends on the attitude we have. Touching on the Conclave’s theme, he underlined that ethical leadership is defined by our treatment of others. On the occasion, Dr. Bhimaraya Metri emphasized the importance of unlearning, upskilling and reskilling in order to keep up with the changing industry environment. He also underlined how future leadership will transition to contextual leadership.
