‘We all need to be honest in all perspectives in order to be successful’, said Hon’ble Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. (Dr.) Raman Kumar Jha. Respected Director Sir, Prof. (Dr.) Ajit Kumar Pandey said, “The concept of spirituality comes from the ancient Vedic Era or the Sangha Era, where spiritual leaders used to propagate spiritual ideas and knowledge among the masses.” He also emphasized the importance of meditation and the need for re-energizing one's thoughts every morning. Mr. Sumit Kumar opined that spirituality is something which uplifts our thinking. It centers around the self and is not defined by religion; so, religiosity and spirituality should not be taken to be the same thing.
The importance of organizing such seminars is that it has the potential to bring together contemporary thoughts and ancient wisdom and use that synthesis to bring about harmony in working environments and most importantly in the minds of the youth. The seminar concluded with a vote of thanks to all contributors to the seminar.
