Mr N.R. Narayana Murthy
The first guest on TRUTHtalks, an initiative by Satya Vigyan Foundation, was Mr N R Narayana Murthy, founder of Infosys and a Padma Vibhushan awardee. The enriching talk centred around the twin pillars of ‘Experimenting with Truth’ and ‘Being Patient.’ He spoke at length about the values of honesty, transparency and integrity, and shared personal anecdotes and insights on how one could cultivate truthfulness in one’s life.
Justice B. N. Srikrishna
A shining star in the sky of Indian Judiciary, Justice B N Srikrishna threw light on the importance of moving forward in the path of truth and integrity. He also gave his views on phenomena such as ‘the larger good’ and ‘diplomacy’, and cited examples from the Mahabharata and Bhagvad Gita while emphasising on the strength that comes from Truth.
Lovingly known as ‘The Wall’ or ‘Mr Dependable’ by fans of Indian Cricket, Mr Rahul Dravid talked about his successes, his failures, his learnings, and the one common Truth that helped him grow and mature. Not just as a sportsperson, but as a human being.
One of the most prominent voices in India’s spiritual realm, Sister Shivani delved deep into the conundrum of truth and lies and the possibilities at such crossroads. She also opened up about her trysts with Truth that shaped her in becoming a better human being.
Mr Prasoon Joshi
Mr Manish Chokhani
A master communicator and Padma Shri awardee, Mr Prasoon Joshi talked about anubhut satya, or experiential truth. He also touched upon the topics of science, spirituality and social media and the critical role that dialogue plays in navigating through some of the chaos in the world.
Mr Vallabh Bhanshali
Avyaktaji, a scholar, a writer and a meditator, shared his enlightening thoughts on the value of truth, love, compassion, gratitude, honesty, and the need for a purpose in our lives. Pure, powerful, and poetic, this conversation between Avyaktaji and TRUTHtalks founder, Mr Vallabh Bhanshali is available with English subtitles.
Mr Vallabh Bhanshali
On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, the Himalayan saint without a name, Avyakatji, returned to TRUTHtalks, and delved deep into the life of Mahatma Gandhi.
He talked about Gandhiji’s experiences of Truth in his early days as a barrister in South Africa. He also told us about the Mahatma’s deeper, more personal understanding of universal truths later in his life. And through the life of this great man, Avyaktaji left us with tools and tips that we can use in our daily lives. So that we can continue our own personal journeys towards Truth.
Ms Sudha Murty
November 2021 brought us a special TRUTHtalk with an immensely special woman. Sudha Murty – at once a prolific writer, a Padma Shri awardee, a corporate behemoth, and a philanthropist – shared with us her thoughts on truth. She spoke about the value of truth in our daily lives, and the power it bestows upon us to follow our dreams, no matter what the obstacles. She also spoke about the importance of a life lived simply, no matter what one’s achievements.
What is TRUTHtalks
Truth means ‘what is’, the reality that alone can succeed, the gravity to which all must return
“Yet, we so often resort to falsehood for short-term gains losing much of our peace, reputation and capability in the bargain.”
Why have we moved away from the path of Truth?
Is it because Truth has got redefined by law, legal affirmations, sectarian beliefs, marketing, etc?
TRUTHtalks, an initiative of Satya Vigyan Foundation and Vallabh Bhanshali, co-founder, ENAM Group, Desh Apnayen and FLAME University, seeks to explore this question with those who have experimented a lot with Truth. To better understand Truth as the most powerful phenomenon in Nature, more than just a moral value or a legal obligation. And to mainstream the discussion and practice of Truth. Even with just a little more alignment to Truth, to what is, society will enjoy greater peace and productivity.
Truth Talks will invite people from various fields of human endeavor who are respected in the community for their efforts to lead a successful life of integrity. These are people who have ‘experimented’ a lot with Truth.
