At the beginning of his keynote at ThinkEdu Conclave, Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri, the Vice-Chairman of Mata Amritanandamayi Math and President of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, offered a simple definition of it, linking it directly to education. “There are two types of education - education for a living and education for life. While education for a living is studying to become a scientist, a doctor or such; education for life is understanding the essential principles of the life, nature of the mind and world. This is spirituality,” he said. Clearing the fact that spirituality is not linked to any religion, he further added that every one of us is practicing spirituality without realising it as such, “It is nothing different from the world or the worldly life”.
