At a meet focused on spirituality in medicine, for which health and medical professionals from across the world had gathered recently in New Jersey in the USA, the global diaspora extended support to humanitarian programmes driven by Iskcon.

The meet, ‘Transformation, Leadership & Spirituality in Medicine’, held on June 21, keynote speaker Radhanath Swami of Mumbai’s Shri

Radha Gopinath Temple delivered a talk centred on his experiences in the field of medicine, according to an Iskcon release in Mumbai.

Swami talked about Iskcon’s efforts in providing relief to the earthquake victims in Nepal who, he added, needed not only medical attention but also holistic spiritual care.

Speakers at the event said that the healthcare model of the future would be very different as it will be based on health and wellness as opposed to the current model of sickness and disease. That is evident from the ‘Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability’ movement, a USD 300 billion marketplace focusing on the interconnections between larger global cultures and political systems.
