The Governor said the immortality of the soul is relevant even today. In the era when all books, libraries and schools were burnt, the Indian knowledge system continued in that era too. The Governor expected that the contemplation in the Darshan Parishad conference would be a meaningful effort in this direction.

Professor Sangeet Kumar Ragi said while the Western philosophy has been successful in the field of materialism, Indian philosophy is a big success in the field of spiritualism.

He said philosophy is the spiritual science of learning from experience and it needs to be linked with today’s science. Chairman of Indian Council of Philosophical Research, Prof Ramesh Chandra Sinha, said the role of philosophers in giving direction to the society is widespread.

In the modern scenario, philosophy cannot be limited to the world of humans. Giving the beej vaktavya of the session, Prof Abhimanyu Singh said insight, nature, diversity and the need for philosophy.
