CONFERENCES


The Unity of Man Conferences take up the line of the first World Conference on Unity of Man under the presidency of Sant Kirpal Singh, which was the beginning of the movement. In His auspicious welcome speech Sant Kirpal Singh highlighted the Conference aims:

"This convention aims to unite all mankind on the common ground of service to fellow human beings and Faith in Divine Power, and to accomplish that, it urges the religious and ethical leadership of the world to shed apathy and aloofness and assume a more prominent role in human affairs. Such conferences in the past have been organized at the level of religions, and consequently have not been able to achieve integration in the required measure. A significant feature of this conference is that it is being organized at the level of man, as envisioned by saints and prophets like Socrates, Buddha, Mohammed, Christ, Kabir, and Nanak, so that it may lead to true integration.

I am confident that each one of us fully realizes the significance of this cosmopolitan meeting and will extend his whole-hearted support toward the fulfillment of its objectives: developing human understanding and heralding the unity of mankind. Let us pledge ourselves to this task, transcending all narrow allegiances and commitments, and stand united and resolute until its ultimate fulfillment."

After the first World Conference on the Unity of Man 1974 in Delhi, among a series of national and local meetings and smaller conferences, two World Conferences in 1994 and 2007 at Kirpal Sagar set milestones on the way. The line of conferences have resulted in a warm and constant contact with representatives of different faiths and public personalities. In a smaller or larger scale conferences on the unity of man are being convened from time to time, encouraging to live the ideal of unity in day-to-day life.

 

 

 


The work of the Conference will be carried on much further, each time we see that God is working through our neighbor, our brother – through all men; each time we resist the temptation to consider our welfare ahead of that of our brother or sister; when we see that every human being we meet is a child of God. Our common aim should be to alleviate men’s suffering and reduce their separation. In that sense this Conference will never end.
