Our Story

The World Confluence of Humanity, Power and Spirituality is being held every year with great success since 2010. So far 10 confluences were held, 6th-10th January, 2010, 2nd-4th January, 2011, 22nd-23rd December, 2012, 2nd-4th January, 2012, 28th- 29th December, 2013, 27th-28th December, 2014, in Kolkata, 22nd-23rd December, 2015, in New Delhi, 7th May, 2016, in Mumbai, 16th-17th December, 2016, in New Delhi, 22nd-23rd December, 2017, in Kolkata. This programme 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 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.

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 selfless 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, 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. The positive energy has to be aroused to maintain life’s balance by having faith in self, creator and service. To inspire the youth, the confluence program included on the margin inter school 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.

Message from Chairman & Visionaries

We are the children of God; we are all equal in His eyes. We are the infinite, perfect, immortal children. We have oceanic power and wisdom. The infinite library of the Universe is our own mind. I am a spirit living in a body.

Spirituality balances the trinity of power, money and authority.
Spirituality awakens inner power. It connects God in our heart and mind. Spirituality serves the purpose of supporting the moral and social principles which have made men civilized. It strengthens you for the joyous adventure called life.
Your spiritual manifestations will always glorify whatever you do.
