This volume contains papers pesented in the seminar by distinguished personalitiies including a few monks of the order.The world has become task-oriented, the scope of healthy emotional exchanges, cooperation, comparison, concern etc. are all lost in the quagmire of materialism. The facts point out crises in human culture. Scientists have become concerned with introducing changes in the scenario. With such a wave of new thought or assimilative process of older thoughts in the newer versions, there arose a new orientation. The day has come when, everybody should have an exposure to the systems of concern, content and implied results in one life.This volume will help the readers in understanding the real message of spirituality and also in forming a positive attitude towards life from the standpoint of Positive Psychology. Spirituality is broadening one's self till it embraces all living beings. A spiritual man therefore also in different papers of the Seminar.
