This paper was presented at the 8th International Conference on “Sustainable and Human Development Through Spirituality, Peace Economics and Peace Science” on 6th April, 2018 at Hotel Le Meridian at Bangalore, India.
Spirituality is a possible solution to today’s world of hatred and violence. Spirituality is commonly associated with god and religion. The problem is that major part of hatred emanates from religion.
Firstly, spirituality is highly misunderstood and needs to be correctly and scientifically defined. Secondly, the problem is not of spirituality being inaccessible to majority. What’s missing is know-how to tap our spirituality or spiritual power, which is already present in and accessible to every human-being.
Prem’s paper explores solutions to these two problems. This paper defines spirituality as a science of human-mind. Advances in material-science (Physical science) brought in the industrial and information revolution. Advances in mind-science will usher in a new revolution – the Spiritual Revolution. Whereas earlier revolutions enhanced our muscle-power and brain-power, Spiritual revolution will help us tap our untapped mind-power.
Prem not only provides a new vision-cum-dream of spiritually-evolved human beings and a violence-free peaceful world, he suggests new possible areas of research in mind-science to actually realize the vision. Prem’s paper provides alternate framework for humanity to seek an elevation in their emotional well-being with a new definition of spirituality which is more scientific, less religious.
