About the Confluence

The World Confluence of Humanity, Power and Spirituality is being held every year with great success since 2010. It was held on 6th-10th January  2010, 2nd -4th January 2011, 22nd-23rd December and 2nd-4th January 2012, 28th- 29th December 2013, 27th-28th December 2014, in Kolkata, 22nd-23rd December 2015, in New Delhi, and 7th May 2016, in Mumbai, 16th-17th December 2016, in New Delhi and 22nd-23rd December 2017, Kolkata. This program is the first of its kind in the world with a conglomeration of important issues on humanity, power (inner & outer) and spirituality. Several distinguished luminaries whose hearts echo with humanity, from the different communities and religions across the world, shared their views that every religion propagates service to humanity, and that moral and social principles have its own paths leading to one cosmic reality. Various religions are like flowers of different colors to be tied with a cord of love into a beautiful bouquet to be offered at the altar of truth. Diversity with unity is inherent in nature.

The World Confluence of Humanity, Power and Spirituality has been warmly applauded by the public now for the last seven years. It has received the wholehearted support of the elites and the laymen alike. This is a spectacular confluence where all streams of thought converge irrespective of religious persuasion, inclusive of all disciplines whether belonging to science or humanities, sacred or secular, social or cultural, political or economic, where distinguished luminaries share their thoughts and life's experiences, highlighting unity in diversity and diversity in unity. It remains the task of this conference to bring home the values of enlightenment in practice as life's journey within one's own self, and through love and service to the society at large.

Swami Vivekananda observed that 'The world needs spirituality to establish fearlessness in the new generation, self-discipline, hard work and service to the nation'. He asserted, “Manifest divinity within you”, and added, “Mark, if you give up spirituality, the result will be that in three generations you will be extinct.”

The former President of India, the late Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, who inaugurated the 4th World Confluence of Humanity, Power and Spirituality rightly quoted at the confluence, “Spirituality can eradicate corruption not legislation.”

The World Confluence accords a special place to women who are a source of inspiration, love and selfless services. He said that women have great abilities and a great role to play in the world’s advancement, which also finds voice in the UN Millennium Goals to which we are committed. They are the architects of the future generation. The world will be happy if they are happy.

Children and youth are the future of the country and their consciousness has to be transformed through spiritual alchemy to gain inner power so as to cope with life's challenges with faith in self and the creator, and to serve humanity.

Their inner power has to be aroused to cope with life's challenges with faith in self, creator and service.

To inspire the youth, the confluence program included on the margin, interschool debate, sit-and-draw and essay writing competitions related to service to humanity amongst different age groups followed by prize distribution.

On Swami Vivekananda’s 150th Birth Anniversary the confluence started conferring the Swami Vivekananda SREI Samman Awards for Outstanding Service in the field of: (i) Education (ii) Work for the Deprived and the Disadvantaged (iii) Contribution for Health (iv) Development and Research (v) Literary Excellence (vi) Crusader for Humanity (vii) Crusader for Women.

The Confluence is not religion oriented. Empathically it is for humanity, peace, harmony and happiness. It is to ignite our consciousness, sub consciousness, and super consciousness to the divinity in us. “Jeev Seva is Shiva Seva” (Service to humanity is service to Lord Shiva) Paramhansa Ramakrishna said, “Narendra (Swami Vivekananda) serve humanity with faith in the creator.”
