Theme

Media sets public agenda and exerts significant influence on public mind. Media can reset its agenda for establishing a value-based society as well, in a world which is witnessing rapid decline in moral, ethical and spiritual values, now-a-days.

Depletion of human values in society has caused a great spurt in crass consumerism, crimes, corruption, other vices and violence all around.  Human role, relation, ideals, aims and objectives have also changed significantly by straying from the value-based tracks. Today, people themselves have become the worst enemies of their fellow beings and of humanity at large.

People have lost faith in legislature, executive and social bodies which are supposed to provide good governance, social well-being, balanced rapprochement and legal enforcements. The main problem is the non-existence of any value-based body or organization, as a result of which society has become quite dysfunctional.

Mass Media’s human-friendly moral and ethical values are also on decline. However, media still is at the core of human motivation, optimism, social relations, knowledge dissemination and at the core of debates and discussions. Still people have faith in media’s role, responsibility and social concerns.  When media resets its value-based priorities, human and civil society are redirected to the right path, in no time. Hence, media needs to accept its role of working towards a value-based, inclusive, integrated, healthy and positive society and for bringing about positive changes necessary for building a better world.

The major objectives of the conference are to equip human beings with inner powers and soft skills to draw out the best core qualities and spiritual wisdom inherent in all of us for practical implementation by facilitating discussions on cultivating inner values and professional ethics, in an atmosphere of creative contemplation, silent introspection and practice of self-empowering Rajyoga Meditation.

Keeping in view of these objectives, the Media Wing of Rajyoga Education and Research Foundation (RERF), the sister organisation of Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya (PBKIVV), will hold and host a Media Conference-cum-Retreat at Gyan Sarovar Academy, Mount Abu, Rajasthan, from 1st to 5th June, 2018.

मूल्य आधारित समाज के लिए मीडिया एजेंडा की पुनर्रचना

मूल्य आधारित समाज की रचना आज की प्रथम और महती आवश्यकता है. मानवीय मूल्यों के क्षरण से समाज में हिंसा, व्यभिचार, भ्रष्टाचार, आदि अपने व्यापक और बड़े स्वरुप में मौजूद हैं. नयी पीढ़ी ने तो एक तरह से स्पर्धा, असहयोग, दयाहीनता आदि को गुणों के रूप में अपनाकर मूल्यों की परिभाषा ही बदल दी है. मूल्य अब समय, बाजार, उपयोगिता, उपभोग आदि के अनुसार स्वीकार किये जाने लगे हैं. इस सब ने सम्बन्धों, भूमिकाओं, आदर्शों, लक्ष्यों आदि में भी व्यापक परिवर्तन किये हैं, इससे ही आज का मनुष्य स्वयं ही मानव और मानवीयता का शत्रु बनता जा रहा है.

समाज की व्यवस्था, नियमन और उनके क्रियान्वयन की उत्तरदायी इकाइयां भी मूल्यों और आदर्शों से बेपटरी हो गई हैं. लोगों का विश्वास भी उनमें अब कम होता जा रहा है. पर दिक्कत यह है कि उनकी कोई स्थानापन्न निकाय या इकाइयाँ नहीं हैं. इसलिए सब कुछ अंधों के हाथी की तरह चल रहा है. ऊपर से व्यवस्थित समाज के आधार में अव्यवस्था ही है. सब इसे जानते हैं पर किसी को कोई सुनिश्चित रास्ता नजर नहीं आ रहा है.

मीडिया के मानव सरोकारी मूल्यों में भी क्षरण तो हुआ है, पर वह अब भी लोगों के बीच सम्बन्ध, आशा, विचार और मूल्यानुगत आचरण का केंद्र है. लोगों ने  एक से अधिक बार उसे हिलते और दरकते आधारों से पुनः स्थापित करने में प्रेरणा और आशा का संचार किया है और अब भी जानकारी, विचार और विमर्शों का वह एकमेव केंद्र है. अब भी लगता है कि यदि उसकी भूमिका, आशय और मूल्य चेतना का पुनर्गठन,लक्ष्यीकरण कर दिया जाये या वह स्वयं कर ले तो समाज को मूल्य आधारित होने की तरफ मुड़ने में ज्यादा समय नहीं लगेगा. यानि मीडिया अपना एजेंडा एक बार फिर से मूल्य आधारित, समावेशी, सकारात्मक समाज रचना का स्वीकार कर ले तो परिवर्तन निश्चित है, ऐसा माना जा सकता है.

इसी वैचारिक प्रवाह के अंतर्गत प्रजापिता ब्रह्माकुमारी ईश्वरीय विश्व विद्यालय की अंगजा संस्था राजयोग एजुकेशन एंड रिसर्च फाउंडेशन की मीडिया विंग ने त्रिदिवसीय मीडिया सम्मेलन का आयोजन किया है. यह सम्मेलन ज्ञान सरोवर, माउन्ट आबू में 1 जून से 5 जून 2018 तक है, जिसमें आप सादर आमंत्रित हैं.
