INVITE YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE NATIONAL WORKSHOP
Integrating Spirituality and Mathematical Science
December 21 – 23, 2009 After conducting series of International Conferences on different dimensions of integrating spirituality and management Faculty of Management Studies, University of Delhi now announces a 3 day National Workshop on “Integrating Spirituality and Mathematical Science” during December 21 – 23, 2009 at University of Delhi. The Background In India Mathematical science and spirituality have always gone together as the roots being same – Vedas. According to Vedic mathematics all of mathematics is based on sixteen sutras or word – formulae, for example, vertically and crosswise is one of the Sutras. These formulae describe the way the mind naturally works and therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution. Hence, the researchers put Vedic maths as the technology and science of order and precision, which maintains the uprightness of unity and also spreads variety with it. It is also said to be the Natural Law’s structuring dynamic; it instinctively designs the source and goal of natural law, which is the orderly theme of evolution. Thus Vedic science includes gathering inner knowledge through reason and experimentation leading to direct perception of truth. The proposed workshop intends to initiate discussions on logical – mathematical approach to understand the nature of consciousness. The Rationale Recognizing the importance and place of the outer and inner sciences, the workshop will make the participants learn to integrate both to create harmony in our lives at all levels. Our technical capabilities are increasing at an enormous speed as compare to the development of values in modern societies. This is creating almost an empty culture. We need a broadly accepted spirituality in the present time that gives us purpose and meaning beyond the necessities of daily existence. The Focus There will be various panel discussions and resource persons delivering more theoretical kind of talks under the broad theme of “Integration Spirituality and of Mathematical Science”. This broad theme will contain the thoughts related to origin of natural sciences and systematic spiritual practices. The deliberations will focus on:
- Logical Mathematical Approach to Spirituality.
- Mathematical Science as a Form of Spirituality and Spirituality as a Type of Science.
- The Concept of Time and Space Vis – A- Vis Spirituality.
- Mathematical Science And Supra-mental Consciousness
- Mathematical Science and Mystical Experience.
- Conscious Mind and Cognitive Artificial Intelligence.
- Religio – Spiritual Sources Of Modern Science
Who can Attend The proposed workshop intends to bring together the doctoral students, particularly young ones, working in the area of Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Operations Research, Management, Life Sciences, Psychology, Philosophy, Spirituality and Religion on one platform to discuss the rationalistic – scientific approach to spirituality.
