Himachal Pradesh high court chief justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir on Sunday batted for resolving all kinds of conflicts through mediation, saying that meditation had the potential for providing a satisfactory solution to any dispute.

Mansoor Ahmad Mir, who was inaugurating a regional conference on mediation at the Himachal Pradesh high court in Shimla, said, “Mediation attempts to change a dispute from a “win-lose” situation to a “win-win” situation.”

The state legal authority and the meditation committee of Himachal Pradesh high court organised the conference. Underlining the significance of meditation, he said, “Alternative disputes resolution (ADR) mechanisms not only benefit the masses, but lawyers and other professionals are also likely to have avenues for diversification,” added Mir.

On the occasion, Mir released a handbook on meditation. He said a meditation-monitoring committee would be organising a 'Campus Meditation Awareness Week' to educate the youth on constructive ways of resolving differences amicably. Nearly 160 mediators from Shimla, Solan, Kinnaur and Sirmaur are participating in the conference that began at the high court.
