Prof. Sampadananda Mishra, Director Centre for Human Sciences Rishihood University mentioned: “This distinguished conference is organised as a part of the Avadhānakalā and Consciousness Studies project, generously funded by the Indian Knowledge Systems (IKS) division of the Ministry of Education, Government of India. We are proud to collaborate with the National Sanskrit University Tirupati (NSU) to bring this transformative event to life.”

Avadhānakalā, an age-old cultural phenomenon in India, has, for centuries, remained a subject of fascination but has not received the comprehensive exploration it truly deserves. In an era where sustaining one’s attention for even a few moments can be a formidable feat, there exist individuals with exceptional abilities, distinguished by their unparalleled powers of concentration, creativity, focus, and memory. The key to unlocking this extraordinary capacity lies within Avadhānakalā, the ancient Indian art of multiple concentration.

Prof. G.S.R Krishnamurthy, honorable Vice Chancellor of NSU, Tirupati said: “The “Avadhāna Saṅgama” conference promises a diverse array of programs, including captivating Avadhana performances, illuminating lecture demonstrations, enlightening plenary sessions, and thought-provoking panel discussions. He emphasized that this first in the series of Avadhana Sangama Conference is a rare oppertunity where one will experience various new and unfamiliar forms of Avadhana. He also said this collaboration with CHS, Rishihood University in organising this series of Avadhana Sangama Conference will surely bring fascinating results in the field of research in Avadhanam.”

The inaugural session was held on 11th of September at 10 am, marking the commencement of this remarkable journey into the world of cognitive mastery.

We invite scholars, researchers, practitioners, and enthusiasts from around the globe to join us in Tirupati for this extraordinary exploration of Avadhānakalā.
