India has been a strong example of secular, liberal thought for centuries. The conference focused on promoting a similarity of thought at the ground level to ensure long lasting peace. In the age of customized information, unfounded prejudice has led to conflict. This conference concluded with the premise that amidst all the darkness of such disparities and violence, there is a need for us to stand strong and united as one. The resolution was supported by all members of GCF present at the event.
CONQUER THE WORLD WITH YOGA
For many years now, the ancient Indian philosophy of Yoga has guided thousands of people to a more rewarding and content life. The declaration of an International Yoga Day in 2015, gave a fresh impetus to the revolution that could – when used in its true spirit – bring peace to the world. Yoga and the ability to control the conscious mind is the first step to a unified world. The GCF evening conference in Singapore highlighted the significance of Yoga as a tool for peace and tranquillity. The conference was addressed by Shri Ravi Kumar Iyer – a Yoga expert who contextualized the practice in its ancient Indian origins and how it has contributed in the making of India as a global peace leader.
