5th. National Conference On LIFE AND SUFFERING
11 – 12 February, 2017
Life is a continuous pursuit of Happiness. The history of development of mankind reveals that the underlying essential motive behind almost all human advancements in Science and Technology; Socio-economic and Political spheres; Religious, Philosophical and Moral ideas and ideals; or any other aspect, has been to overcome suffering and attainment of happiness. This endeavour to attain happiness and/or overcome suffering is incessant and persistent. Life, thus, has never been free of suffering. This suffering assumes various dimensions or modes such as Pain, Misery, Evil; Affliction Anguish, Alienation; Conflict, Struggle, Frustration; Deprivation, Dishonour, Dehumanization; etc. How to better understand the concept of suffering as imbedded in life and how to develop a convincing response or approach to this suffering, thus, emerges as the quintessential question concerning each and every individual.
