They held discussions on three topics: clean energy for a greener future, holistic health, and connecting science with society and culture.
In this meeting, Mr. Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Committee member. Sanjeev Sanyal also participated. As he comments on holding a scientific conference at a spiritual center, “Many people now realize that there is a certain limit to boring old-fashioned boring science. In general, life cannot be understood with such a narrow perspective as we approach science. A more expansive view is needed to understand life. It is great that this conference is being held at the Isha Yoga Center which has such a vision,” he said.
The Chairman of the S-20 Conference Mr. Ashutosh Sharma says, “It does not make much difference if a conference is held in a five-star hotel in New York or a five-star hotel in Mumbai or Delhi. But holding the S-20 conference at a venue like Isha Yoga Center gives a new perspective and experience of India,” an international delegate who participated in the S-20 conference shared with him.
Indian Ministry of External Affairs Joint Secretary Mr. Nagaraj Naidu says, “The purpose of both science and spirituality is to find answers to the questions within us. Aim to understand the world of science. Spirituality also aims at understanding truth. Although the applications and procedures for both are slightly different, both follow a similar methodology in a way. Both science and spirituality work for the betterment of mankind.” said as
