A Lecture given by Radhanath Swami to group of Doctors. The Lecture was conducted by Association of Medical Consultants and Bhakti Vedanta Hospital. The Lecture was about Role of spirituality in health care.

 


From http://www.dnaindia.com/health/report_greater-role-for-spirituality-in-mumbai-health-care-stressed_1624952

With science and technology not being able to keep pace with the newer subtle lifestyle-related problems, doctors and spiritual organisations addressed the need for greater role of spirituality in the field of health care.

Calling it the ‘Fourth dimension of health’ (care), the Association of Medical Consultants along with the Bhakti Vedanta Hospital on Sunday conducted a lecture and debate on the ‘Role of Spirituality in Medicine’.

The lecture was attended by over 200 doctors and spiritual leader of ISKCON His Holiness Radhanath Swami Maharaj. Among the people who pitched for spirituality were doctors who wanted their peers to approach the subject with an open mind.

“There has to be an outer and an inner world that need to go together. Both have to co-exist and only then can there be a proper integrated health care. While the outer world can be dealt with through science, the inner world of a person needs to be approached through spirituality,” suggested Dr KP Misra, senior consultant cardiologist.

The speakers believed that medicine should not be treated as a profession.

“Emotional and spiritual aspect need to be given as much care. And only when a person is loving and compassionate can that be achieved. This can happen only when a person is spiritual. Medicine should not just be looked at as a profession, but as a way for improving people’s life. When the Association of Medical Consultants approached us, we were happy to be a part of this thinking,” said Radhanath Swami.

Though science and spirituality have often been seen as two different approaches, doctors said they needed to be looked as one.

“Studies have shown that people are happier in poor countries compared to rich nations. In developed countries, people are not happy because of mental and stress-related problems. This largely happens because there is no spiritual connect,” said Dr Kavitha Chintala, a paediatric cardiologist.
