)-- Spice Foundation today organised a Conclave on Global consciousness at the Buddha mansion in New Delhi. This conclave aimed at promoting global consciousness and creation of a charter that will become the foundation of a Global Citizenship Forum. The Forum will be formally set up in Singapore this year.
At the start of the day’s proceedings, a message from H. H. The Dalai Lama was read out to the audience by his representative. In his message, His Holiness emphasised on gender equality and empowerment of women through education. He defined compassion and warm heartedness as the way to live together in harmony. The message also highlighted the fact that going forward women will play a key role in creating a peaceful society as they are more inclined to be compassionate.
The conclave brought together eminent global thinkers, spiritual leaders, business leaders, members of the royalty, professionals, senior bureaucrats and academicians.
Distinguished panelists including Nobel Laureate Dr. RK Pachauri, H.H. Gaj Singh, Dr. Mahesh Mehta, Mr. Narayan Mohan, Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati shared their perspective on how technology, education, spirituality and environment play a key role in developing a world with Global Consciousness. Renowned actor Anil Kapoor also graced the event and shared his views as a global citizen.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr B.K Modi, President Spice Foundation and Global Chairman of Spice Global said, “The concept of selflessness and Global Consciousness is not a new age invention. It has always existed in all societies. Through this conclave, my effort is to bring together all world minded change agents who are passionate about unifying their efforts to create a peaceful, harmonious and progressive world. The setting up of the Global Citizenship forum with its headquarters at Singapore will be a concrete step in this direction. He also added that he will spearhead this initiative as a Global Citizen. He also set a target of achieving a membership of around 10,000 soon for the Forum.”
The event ended with a unified opinion that Global consciousness will be led by the youth. Technology will enable us to take this concept to the remotest part of the world and help us to focus on achieving environmental balance, ensuring food security and an education that is not only aimed at gaining material knowledge but also focussed on evolving beyond self interest. This development of Global Consciousness will also ensure equal opportunity for all irrespective of caste creed, gender, nationality etc.
The Conclave ended with a Sufi Musical night by Kailash Kher and was attended by eminent personalities.
