Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay receives the ‘Best Paper Award’ at the International Conference on Innovations in Multidisciplinary Research (ICIMR-2021)

Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay conducts novel spiritual research using UAS (Universal Aura Scanner)

The Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay, located in Goa, India has been involved in over 40 years of spiritual research about the spiritual dimension and subtle energies and how they affect a person’s life ubiquitously. The intention is to help people make more informed decisions besides gaining a holistic understanding of life. To this end, we have been publishing our research on the website and along with publishing papers at National and International Conferences about various findings and phenomena from the spiritual perspective.

We have presented here the briefs of a Conference in which Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay’s team participated and received the ‘Best Paper Award’ for its research on Swastika.

For details and more information, please visit the websites mentioned below.

Our spiritual research shows that every symbol or sign emits subtle vibrations. These subtle vibrations can be positive or negative. We need to study the spiritual vibrations which any symbol emits, since these vibrations will have an effect (which can be positive or negative) on the people who embrace it. These were the conclusions of the paper presented by Mr Sean Clarke.

Depending on the context, the Swastika is recognised as one of the most auspicious or heavily vilified symbols in the world. It originated as a sacred symbol in Hinduism, and it was also used by other Eastern religions.  Despite its sacred origins, the Swastika has become so widely associated with Nazi Germany that any contemporary usage of the symbol frequently incites controversy. So, is the Swastika symbol spiritually beneficial to society or not, and should it be embraced or discarded ?

Mr Sean Clarke spoke on 23rd August 2021 at ‘The International Conference on Innovations in Multidisciplinary Research (iConference) New Delhi’, organised by iConference, New Delhi. He presented a scientific paper titled ‘The spiritual difference behind the Hindu Swastika and Nazi Swastika’ for which he received the ‘Best Paper Award’ on behalf of the Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay.

Ninety presenters from over 10 different countries participated in this Conference. This was the 78th presentation by Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay (MAV). MAV has so far participated and presented research papers in 15 National and 62 International Scientific Conferences.

Authored by Paratpar Guru (Dr) Jayant Athavale (Founder of MAV) and co-authored by Mr Sean Clarke, the paper’s findings on the Swastika piqued the interest of the audience and was received well.

Mr Sean Clarke shared that with 40 years of experience in spiritual research, the team at Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay has studied the Swastika in great detail from the spiritual perspective. This research has been conducted by using aura and subtle energy scanners along with the advanced sixth sense of its research team.

Listed ahead are some key aspects (found through spiritual research) related to the form and the colour of the Swastika, which can significantly affect the subtle vibrations it emits.

  • Straight, tilted or inverted
  • The corners and ends – straight or curved
  • With or without dots
  • Thickness of the arms
  • Colour used

It was found that if depicted incorrectly like the Nazi Swastika, it emits negative vibrations. On the other hand, if depicted in a spiritually correct manner like the Hindu Swastika, it was found that the Swastika has the capability of attracting and emitting positive spiritual energy. In such a form, it can be utilised decoratively for auspicious occasions as it provides a spiritual healing effect on the immediate environment.

Special Comments by the attendees

Dr Bushra S Al-Noori, who was the moderator, said that she didn’t know the difference between the Nazi and Hindu Swastika. But now she is aware and seemed very impressed.

Dr Patel, HSRC, Gujarat : This will be very useful. Please put this video session on YouTube also. Some of the books on Hinduism sent from here to Germany had the Swastika symbol, and hence, the authorities were seriously suspicious of the receiver, who was an Indian academician working in Germany. Please convey my compliments and regards to Mr Sean Clarke.

Introduction to Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay 

Since the ancient times till about a thousand years ago, Bharat (India) was renowned as the paradise of Universities. Through Universities such as Takshashila, Mithila, Bhojshala, etc. and also through the Ashrams of Sages and Seers, the Vedas, Scriptures, disciplines of Knowledge, Arts, Dharma, Philosophy, etc. were taught and Hindu Dharma and culture were spread appropriately. The flame of knowledge on Dharma, which became dim after the devastating attacks of foreigners, is now being revitalised by us through the medium of ‘Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay’.

Presently, not only in India but throughout the world, education on materialistic aspects only is provided through thousands of Universities. There is not a single University in existence today that provides knowledge on God-realisation, that is, knowledge on spiritual science of the 14 Vidyas (Knowledge-forms)and 64 Kalas (Art-forms). This is an effort to fill this lacuna through the medium of the ‘Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay’.

You will find that these abstracts are unique as they take a holistic approach to understanding the cause-and-effect relationship of events and phenomena. This means that the research takes into account not only physical and psychological reasons underlying events, but their spiritual causes too.

We are reaching out to the academic community and to researchers in relevant fields to learn if the abstracts are of interest to them. We are also reaching out to see whether they would be interested in publishing these abstracts in their journals and forums. We can also provide such journals and forums with the full text paper for their review and/or publication.

In addition, we have a wide array of research that has been conducted touching various disciplines. If you are an academic and/or researcher and there is some other topic you have interest in (apart from the ones you will find on the link provided above), please let us know and we will endeavor to come back to you with some of our research material that is relevant to your topic of interest.
