The 1st World Parliament on Spirituality
India had the great privilege of hosting The 1st World Parliament on Spirituality that happened from 17th to 21st Dec 2012 at The Global Peace Auditorium, Gachibowli, Hyderabad. The main theme of the Parliament was ‘Earth is One, Truth is One, We are One’. Its Chairperson was none other than Padma Shri Dr.DR Karthikeyan, former CBI Director, DG National Human Rights and its Convenor and Secretary General was Dr.Yugandhar GR, General Surgeon, Spiritual Master and Pioneer in Transformational Medicine. The parliament was a confluence of many of the world’s greatest spiritual masters, as well as thousands of spiritual seekers.
The aim of the Parliament is to create Oneness, Peace and Universal Brotherhood in the world by interacting with all enlightened organizations and their members, to share, learn and work together for a Healthy and Happy World.
The parliament was organized by THE WORLD UNITED, which is a non-profit foundation based in Hyderabad. The World United serves as a spiritual binding force that connects all spiritual seekers, inspirational leaders, motivators, and trainers of the mind, body and soul, as well as all spiritual groups working across the planet. It was founded by Dr.Yugandhar GR from divine inspiration. Several other organizations also worked in association with The World United to make the Parliament a grand success. Some of its events were telecasted on TV5 News channel and on Youtube.
There were 4 halls at the Parliament, where cultural events, talks, group discussions and workshops took place on all 5 days, with Hall 1 being the hall for ‘Pure Spirituality’ having topics such as:
Spirituality, Meditation, Enlightenment, Kundalini Awakening, Miracles, Chakra Energy, Spiritual Transformation, Personal and Planetary Transformation, Channelled Messages from Angelic Beings, Wisdom of various Spiritual Cultures of the World, Traditional Spiritual Schools, Star Wisdom and UFOlogy.
And Halls 2, 3 and 4 being the halls for ‘Applied Spirituality’ and topics such as:
Spirituality and Health, Spirituality and Education, Spirituality and Good Governance & Politics, Spirituality and Women’s Empowerment, Spirituality and Arts and Culture, Spirituality and Youth Empowerment, Spirituality and Management, Spirituality and Environment, Spirituality and Disability Management, Spirituality and Science and Technology and Spirituality and Inter-Faith Unity.
Around 100 global spiritual luminaries and over 200 experts from various fields of Applied Spirituality from over 50 countries spoke at the parliament. The speakers did not represent any religion, but spoke of Spirituality being the origin and root of every religion.
This 5-day event ended with a 1 hour Global Meditation for all of Humanity from 5pm to 6pm IST on 21st Dec 2012 that was streamed worldwide. This meditation was designed to assist Humanity in leaping to its next phase of evolutionary consciousness.
A message from the organizers of the 1st WPS
“In this 21st century of the spiritual and scientific revolution, our understanding of nature, ourselves and the universe is expanding in all directions. The social, cultural and spiritual implications of this upheaval are incalculable. At the same time, high technology based media are also in a period of dramatic development, enabling us to widely share this newly dawning consciousness with a previously undreamt of degree of verisimilitude.
Our planetary civilization is in the later stages of becoming a wholly intercommunicating organism. Advances in visual resolution, interactivity and virtual reality make it possible to place the joystick of exploration in every hand, to open the galaxies, the atom and the cell for personal introspection, thereby helping one brush aside old and limiting beliefs in order to have a deeper view of the unfolding truth.
We are a team of spiritual thinkers, writers, trainers, researchers, religious gurus, swamis, engineers, entrepreneurs, architects, doctors, spiritual scientists, educators and artists, who with a growing list of global partners across society, seek to address the disconnect between various belief systems in order to reach for the deeper underlying truths instead. This platform is created to bring forth isolated and disconnected knowledge sources, so that we can deliberate on the subject matter of “What is next for us as Humans” on the planetary evolutionary process.
There is a planet wide hunger for awakening, for who we really are, beyond our cultural barriers and demarcations, and an ongoing enquiry of where we might go and who we might become. This is the call from the DIVINE to Humanity, to WAKE UP and prepare ourselves, and to also support Mother Earth in her process of moving into higher consciousness. Never has such an inspiring event happened in the history of our planet. We, invite you to link with us on a planetary level, as an individual or as a group, to create a “Global Web of Light”. You can and will make a difference by your presence at this event.”
It has often been said in the past that India is the secret spiritual capital of the world. This event seems to be the evidence that this reality is coming to pass. This event was a great opportunity for people on the path of Spirituality and self-mastery, to understand various holistic and spiritual paths and to get an exposure to the teachings of various masters in the fields of Spirituality, Self-Transformation and Wellness.
