On Day 2 of the NFSI 2019, the third Technical Session was split into two parallel tracks. The session was chaired by Dr. Shilpa Pandit, Associate Professor of Psychology at CVV and Coordinator, NFSI2019, and included three paper presentations on the theme of Consciousness and Well-being.

The first paper, presented by Dr. Jigisha Gala, was titled ‘Songs of Bliss: As Sung by Lovers’. Dr. Gala spoke about how the state of ananda can be achieved only when we alleviate ourselves from suffering and pleasure. She said this state of renouncing material pleasure has been beautifully captured in verses by Bhakti poets.


The second paper, titled ‘Niṣka̅ma Karma of the Bhagavad Gi̅ta̅ – Its Implications’, was presented by Ms. Rubai Saha, wherein she focused on the importance of carrying out one’s duties sans desires and without an ego-centric and result-oriented mindset.


The third paper was presented by Dr. L. Sampath Kumar and Dr. V. Durgalakshmi. Titled ‘Puruṣārtha Perspectives vis-a-vis the Tirukkuralḷ and the Gītā’, this paper discussed the philosophy of the four purusārthas mentioned in the two great works and drew parallels between the ideas presented therein.


All three papers were well-received by the audience and drew useful comments and suggestions from the Chair.
