Puttaparthi (Anantapur): The two-day conference on ‘Human Values and the Legal World’ was launched by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra in the presence of Justice Dalveer Bhandari, Judge, International Court of Justice (ICJ), The Hague on Saturday.
It was attended by more than 750 legal professionals and 300 law students. It also had a galaxy of Judges from the Supreme Court and the State High Courts of India including Supreme Court judge NV Ramana and Chief Justice of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Justice TB Radhakrishnan.
The main objective of this conference was to reiterate the immense significance aligning the legal profession with the eternal human values of right conduct, peace, truth, love and non-violence – the five principles that Sathya Sai Baba emphasised as the pillars for building a moral society.
Welcoming the dignitaries to the conference, Jatinder Cheema, National Vice-President, Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation, said that since January 28, 1950, the Indian judiciary system has made concerted efforts to protect the rights of every human being and keep the social fabric intact.
He said that in the current world of technology without boundaries, communication has become easy yet the distance between the human hearts has increased.
Given the paucity of peace in the current times, he said that there is no better place to discuss about this than in the ‘abode of peace’ at Prasanthi Nilayam.
Naganand, Trustee, Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, in his welcome Address, shared about the life of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, who in the age of 14, declared that He has come to redeem the world and mentioned how now the Sri Sathya Sai organisations operated in over 125 countries.
He highlighted how the teachings of Sai Baba synthesize the message of all the world religions and simply it into ‘Love all, Serve all’ and “Help Ever Hurt Never.”
He invited all to participate, debate and engage in the spiritual love at the conference.
Justice Dipak Misra in his inaugural address reminded everyone of three important principles, divinity is humanity, thoughtless thought is spirituality and remaining in constant nowness is physical and economic morality.
Elaborating on Dharma, he explained that it is a concept that cannot be adequately translated in the English language or any language and that Dharma connotes that which sustains society, maintains the social order, and ensures well-being and progress of humanity.
The 1,000-strong audience rose in standing ovation as he ended his 30-minute talk. Later, the members of the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust then felicitated him.
