`Mysticism' is "the pursuit of communion with, identity with, or conscious awareness of an ultimate reality, divinity, spiritual truth, or God, through direct experience, intuition or insight." The International Conference "Mysticism without Bounds" makes an attempt to explore the "mystical consciousness" from different disciplines,like religions (Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Sufism, Taoism, etc.), sciences (biology, new physics, neuroscience, and logic), humanities (philosophy, theology, spirituality, psychology, etc.), and art forms (poetry, music, dance, visual arts and rituals).Researches reveal that certain common grounds do exist among the various forms of consciousness, scattered among the world's religions, theologies, sciences, philosophies and art forms. The discovery of such points of convergence holds out the possibility of creating a `new worldview', and this new world view can create an awareness of the essential `unity' of humanity. Let these scholarly and challenging papers from different religious experiences create an awareness among the inquisitive readers of the need of overcoming the `bounds' of individuation and discovering the `unity' of self.Printed Pages: 247.
