Theme: Spiritualising Governance and Politics for development, growth with equity, justice, peace and prosperity
The quality of life in a country very much depends upon the quality of Governance. Only Good Governance can ensure development, growth with equity, justice, peace and prosperity. We know by experience that Democracy is not the best form of Governance. Yet, most of the countries adopt Democracy as other forms of governance may even be worse. When we accept Democracy, it necessarily involves party politics and politicians. Parties and politicians can be of all shades like human beings in other walks of life. But we expect politicians and leaders to be of better quality, integrity and commitment than ordinary citizens, whom they are expected to lead and govern.
It is only by and through spirituality we can create good and noble politicians with integrity, justice, fairness and commitment.
It is by spiritualising politics and governance, we can create ideal political leaders and Good Governance.

This Great Spiritual Ambassador of India says, "Spirituality, after all, is not just about rituals and visits to places of worship, but about imbibing and imparting the right attitudes, values, responsibility, caring and sharing. Each one of us make our own destiny. Each one of us should take a vow that we shall help and uplift atleast one person/ family, who are less fortunate than us. As each one of us have the ability to bring peace and harmony to others, let us first bring about peace and harmony within ourselves, before spreading the same to the family, community, the Nation and the World.
