Sixth International Conference “Science & Scientist-2018” inaugurated at KIIT
Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Institute’s Sixth International Conference “Science and Scientist-2018″ hosted by KIIT Deemed to be University is being held on 26th and 27th October, 2018 at KIIT Convention Centre, Campus-6.
Gracing the occasion as Chief Guest, Dr. P.K. Patasani, MP, Bhu
baneswar delivered the keynote address. He said, “throughout my long journey, I have been really grateful to ISKCON as they are propagating the holy knowledge about Veda and Vedanta. All through my life, for me, religion is a science and through the windows of science we are going to the horizon.”
He elucidated that we are guided and governed by the unseen divine power. The state of consciousness plays a greater role in our lives. First state of consciousness is Transcendent Consciousness, 5th state of consciousness is Cosmic Consciousness, 6th state of consciousness is God Consciousness and 7th state of consciousness is Unit Consciousness.
“We have to ponder that how can we go by the ladder to attain the state of bliss and how the negation is dominated. We also have to devise, how our minds can be conquered through this august colloquium. As I know, mind has been conquered by the great Achyuta Samanta, the Founder of this prominent university”, added Dr. Patasani.
In his presidential address, Prof. Hrushikesha Mohanty VC, KIIT DU said that the conference has made us learn that how rationally one can be mystic and how mystically one can be rational. Quantum Physics has something to say about how brain works. KIIT is itself is a manifestation of the quest on which the Founder completed the institution.
Among the dignitaries, Guests of Honour, Sripad Bhatki Hriday Mahayogi Maharaja, Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, London, U.K; David W. Lehman, University of Colorado, USA; Suvasini Devi and Bhakti Vijnana Muni, President, Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Institute, Bangalore were also present and delivered profound discourses.
