Over 40 papers were presented at the conference and Proceedings and abstracts are available from NERI-Chandigarh or NITTTR Campus in Chandigarh.
A Spiritual Poetry book titled “Mystic Verses” by Shambhushivananda was also released at the conference.
Mystic Verses is a rare expression of divine wisdom and deeply intimate experiences of a modern-day spiritual guide. It reminds us of the inspired poems of the mystics of other eras, as well as Tagore’s Gitanjali in our age. The sparkling sweetness of the verses exalts the senses and transports the reader to a subtler realm. It is inspirational, enriching and uplifting.
The E-book edition of Mystic Verses can be purchased on line via amazon.com.
A cultural evening was coordinated by Chandigarh First and NERI and started with two melodious uplifting songs of Prabhat Samgiita sung by young singing star Ms. Alisha Deen and Mr. Vikrant Marwaha respectively.
