A Retreat with Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

Welcome Address: Shri Arun Kapur, Director, Centre for Escalation of Peace

The retreat will be led by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, who possesses a rare ability to present the ancient Indian and Tibetan wisdom in a fresh, engaging manner. Mingyur Rinpoche is a world-renowned meditation teacher with personal experience of anxiety and panic attacks, which he suffered from throughout his childhood and into his teenage years, when he learned to transform his panic through meditation. From childhood, he became interested in contemporary science through conversations with scientists on research projects that study the effects of meditation on the brain and the mind. 

Mingyur Rinpoche’s first book, The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list and has been translated into over twenty languages. In his most recent book, In Love with the World, Mingyur Rinpoche shares how his meditation practice sustained him when he left his monastery to wander through India and the powerfully transformative insights he gained from the near-death experience he had at the beginning of his journey. 

The Retreat will be conducted in hybrid mode. Due to limited seats, we would request you to kindly please register in advance should you wish to attend the retreat. The link for registration is given below:

The National Conclave examines the relationship between ethics, artificial intelligence and data ecosystem and the extent of their integration with one another and with society. The Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology brings with it not only new understandings of our processing and application of data, but also opens new worlds for exploration and new pathways for science. Data science provides the data and tools that underpin the work of AI, while AI provides the power to automate tasks, create new data, uncover new or ‘hidden’ information in data, and enable predictions and decision-making.
