A two-day workshop, ‘Science of Living: Towards Life Beautiful’ was jointly organized by the Sri Aurobindo Society, J. P. Nagar, Bengaluru, and Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Integral Management (SAFIM, a unit of Sri Aurobindo Society), Puducherry, on July 26 and 27, 2014.
The workshop was attended by 25 participants from various sections of society, including senior executives of corporate houses such TVS, Cognizant, Infosys; lawyers; teachers; and government officials to name a few.
This workshop for individuals aimed to explore one’s true purpose of life and find beauty, peace and harmony through a deeper understanding of self and the various aspects of life.
Through interactive sessions, Facilitator Professor Saikat Sen discussed elaborately the subtle elements of life and raised awareness about the subtleties of different aspects of life such as health, career, money, relationships, etc. Through insightful discussions and self-observations, the participants sought deeper definitions of these essential components and reflected on the purpose of life.
All the members in the workshop actively participated in all sessions, particularly in the outdoor activities. These two days of experiential journey unraveled many opportunities to make life beautiful.
Shri Ajit Sabnis, Chairman of Sri Aurobindo Bhavan Complex, Bengaluru, in his valedictory speech profoundly explained the relevance of the theme of the workshop to the present context with special emphasis to science and technology.
