Immunity- The Natural Forces within
In the era of increasing number of diseases, importance has always been given to the Immunity of the Physical Body, mostly which is acquired externally. Seldom does one look inwards towards the Natural in- built immune system of our Body, Mind & Senses. According to Ayurveda, our Life, its quality and its quantity, is dependent upon the perfect combination of 4 factors- the Physical Body, the Mind, the Senses and Our Soul.
Yoga Day Celebrations
On June 21, 2020, the 6th International day of Yoga, millions of participants virtually joined over 20,000 Sri Sri Yoga teachers from 156 countries, to celebrate the ancient wisdom and perform the Common Yoga Protocol. A Global Call to Join Yoga for Humanity was led by yoga experts from The Sri Sri School of Yoga. This was followed by World Meditation for peace and harmony led by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
Nature and music have always carried a deep connection with humanity. From the song of the koel to the whistling of the winds, the lashing of the waves to the gurgling of a spring, the rustling of the leaves to the pitter-patter of rains - every sound in nature has its unique rhythm. Likewise, the changing colors of the sky, the dazzling sunrises, the dazzling sunsets, and the dark monsoon clouds bring along with them, their own special moods and emotions.
Meditated Here? Angkor Wat
No one knows how these temples were built! No one knows why they were abandoned! No one knows how many of them were there! But the grandeur and massive structures of Angkor have mesmerized anyone who has been there. We know of massive temples with intricate carvings in India; people might speak about the Egyptian Pyramids or the Aztec and Mayan Pyramids in South-America, but this advanced level of artwork and engineering that you find in the Angkor’s temples would beat all of them.
