The World Conference on Unity of Man 2007 was a convention with different fields of attention, corresponding to the multiple aspects of the Project Kirpal Sagar.

The Project celebrated its silver jubilee and the 75th birth anniversary of Dr Harbhajan Singh with the inauguration of the Symbols of Unity on Dec 10, 2007.

With regard to the spiritual base of Kirpal Sagar the inter-religious dialogue was one field of attention, as religious tolerance is a must in a growing multicultural world community. Twenty-nine invited speakers treated the various aspects of the subject in their presentations on Dec 9-10, the main conference days.

 

A further field of attention was the charity programme, which was to set a practical example: goodwill should lead to action. For that, as support for socially disadvantaged people, on Dec 1 a free 'Medical Camp' was started, which continued till January, and on Dec 6 wedding ceremonies were celebrated, sponsored by Unity of Man for the daughters of needy families.

These activities were part of the colourful supporting programme from Dec 1-6, in which also Sports played a major role with the National Schools Volleyball Tournament  taking place Dec 3-5.

A complementary conference programme took place on Dec 7 in Amritsar in honour of Dr Harbhajan Singh, since Sant Kirpal Singh had initiated the work for Kirpal Sagar at Nag Kalan near Amritsar at the time of  Dr Harbhajan Singh, who had his residence there.

From there a procession of busses and cars proceeded to Kirpal Sagar on Dec 8, where the main programme began in the evening with a great welcome function.

The manifold social programmes, events and presentations gave the opportunity to come together and become acquainted with people from all over the world as well as with the Indian culture. It was beautiful to see how easily people became friendly with one another without regard to creed, colour, nationality or castes.

Beside attendees from all over India, people from about twenty other nations participated: Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden, Hungary, Belgium, Canada, France, England, Italy, Australia, Croatia, Slovenia, Rumania, Paraguay, Kenya, Czech Republic, Spain, Syria, Montenegro and Bulgaria.

The inner and outer beauty of the venue Kirpal Sagar created an atmosphere that let  everybody feel peace and harmony. May this spirit of the moment continue to spread throughout the world which was so easy to achieve during these days: to be good, to do good, and to be one.

We warmly thank all for their attendance, for their contributions, well wishes and kindness which helped to make the conference a success like flowers make a bouquet.
