Seminar on Sahaj Yoga

A Sahaj Yoga session was conducted for students on Friday, the 4th September 2015. The day began with learning the technique of relieving stress. A team from Sahaj Yog Kendra and Ms. Chetna Jain in particular taught the students how to meditate through very simple procedure. She said Sahaja Yoga is a method of meditation which brings a breakthrough in the evolution of human awareness. It was created by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970 and has since spread all around the world. It was explained that It is okay if you miss meditation in the morning but be flexible with your time and be sure that you have 10 -15 minutes daily for meditation. As soon as you sit for meditation; make yourself aware that you are meditating. Put your pure attention on the top of your head (lymbic area) and then watch yourself in complete silence.

She said that through the practice of Sahaja Yoga, our awareness gains a new dimension where absolute truth can be felt tangibly - on our central nervous system. As a result of this happening, our spiritual ascent takes place effortlessly and physical, mental and emotional balances are achieved as a byproduct of this growth of our awareness. Sahaja Yoga has a beneficial impact on every aspect of a person's life - that is mental, physical, material, emotional and spiritual life. A rejuvenated human being finds unknown depths of energy and creativity to better his living conditions; and to lead a more meaningful life. The practice of Sahaja Yoga makes a person calm and collected and able to cope more easily and effectively with the strains and stresses of life. They also explained the importance of Yoga and Meditation in student life. 

Seminar on Food Habits

When it comes to eating, we have strong habits. Some are good ("I always eat breakfast"), and some are not so good ("I always clean my plate"). Although many of our eating habits were established during childhood, it doesn't mean it's too late to change them. A session on the right kind of food habits was taken by Shri Vishwas Sharma, who explain about the different food habits that should be developed to remain healthy and disease free on Friday, the 4th September.

He explained that Making sudden, radical changes to eating habits such as eating nothing but cabbage soup, can lead to short term weight loss. However, such radical changes are neither healthy nor a good idea, and won't be successful in the long run. Permanently improving your eating habits requires a thoughtful approach in which you Reflect, Replace, and Reinforce.  He also suggested creating a list of your eating habits. Keeping a food diary for a few days, in which you write down everything you eat and the time of day you ate it, will help you uncover your habits. For example, you might discover that you always seek a sweet snack to get you through the mid-afternoon energy slump. It's good to note how you were feeling when you decided to eat, especially if you were eating when not hungry. Were you tired? Stressed out? He highlighted the habits that may be lead to overeat.
