BK Kinnari Murthy, BK representative at the UN, opened the session with welcoming words filled with peace and love and led us to take a moment to set our intention for the session and centre ourselves before introducing Varshnie Singh, our Moderator.

Below is the essence of what each of the panelists shared:

Dr Hunte

We can only be human together. We were able to provide help. We provided voluntary mental health service for free for everyone .  we are loved in a relationship, We can only be healed by relationship. We were able to give hope. Love and support is bigger than covid .

We were hope ambassadors. 

Dr Binod

We distributed food. Many volunteers emerged .We gave spiritual classes. More than 1000 people took part in meditation claseds and they are still participating.  If a person lacks spiritual health,  he becomes spiritually poor.


Doctors came to help voluntarily and took only 50% pay.Most important thing was that the human mind was ready to serve . Even our house keeping staff came forward to help.  It is the spirit of humanity and it was spontaneous .  People need a sense of belonging . Spirituality is the sense of giving . People needed a good spiritual glance  to recover. When we give we become filled and we become rich.Love is what bind us all together  We must treat others in the way we wish us to be treated.    

Ms. Varshnie 

We have focused on material well being but at the end of the day we can only sleep in one bed. Being have spiritual starvation all though they are well fed and have everything. 

The need for spiritual first aid kit was introduced and you can download it here: 

Spiritual well being only brings all wealth and goodness to us. We can take any material possession with us. When we lack peace, love, forgiveness, what are we really giving.It’s love, care, and compassion that bind us together to rise above.
