BANGALORE: Varied views and theories on meditation, enlightenment practices and consciousness, all under one roof -- that is the Global Congress of Spiritual Scientists, 2009. Scheduled to be held from October 2-5, the residential conference will take place at Pyramid Valley that houses the world's largest meditational pyramid, near Bangalore.
`New-age spiritual masters and spiritual scientists' from different countries like the USA, Italy, Australia and India will present research papers and share experiences and perspectives. The theme of the congress is `Earth evolution through spiritual revolution.' The event will be inaugurated after a keynote address by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
It includes practical techniques, panel discussions, meditation sessions and interactive exhibits, with half-day and full-day modules. A demonstration on plant consciousness -- a plant's response to music -- is expected to be a main attraction.
"It is a platform for the masters of the world to unite for spiritualization of the world. Meditation is the answer of humanity's problems," said Brahmarshi Patriji, founder of Pyramid Spiritual Trust. The event is jointly organized by the trust, Life Research Academy and Times Foundation.
