Spiritual vision and love can overcome all hurdles and overcome communication difficulties., especially that of communication states India's first International Deaf Conference for Spiritual Life and Vision, Universal Sanatana Dharma for the Deaf (USDDeaf).

The weekend conference, at at Iskcon at Juhu, demonstrated that metaphysical could unite hearing-impaired people belonging to different religions, reports The Times of India.

17 speakers, most challenged by hearing problems, promoted a spiritual dimension to the experience of being deaf with the Art of Living, yoga and reiki, health and fitness and healing.

The USDDeaf conference included plays, sign-a-story contests in Indian sign language (ISL), short games and inspiring stories.
"I was rendered deaf when I was one year old. After I grew up, I summed up the strength to fight the challenge and help others like me achieve in life,'' said Anantadeva Dasa (alias Ashok Rao) president and  founder of USDDeaf.

"Although we cannot hear, we are very observant of the life revolving around us and we can communicate the happenings with others who can hear” he said.
“For many, the hearing aid or cochlear implants might be a possible solution but the stress in using the devices is immense and others cam seldom understand that.''



Creation is the highest form of Divinity, and your
birthright. Truth is, you are creating all the time. The
central question in your life is whether you are
doing this consciously or unconsciously.
Conscious creation is what is needed now. Stop
moping. And stop thinking negative thoughts. Just
get on with it! Tomorrow awaits your choice as to
how its going to be. Call the shots! Make it happen!
You're in charge here.
