Rajyoga Shivir' iugurated
GUWAHATI, Sept 24: The four-day Rajyoga Shivir of the Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya, Guwahati was iugurated here on Saturday at the GMCH Auditorium by C K Das, Member North Eastern Council (NEC) and Ranjit Sekher Mooshahary, former Governor of Meghalaya.
Speaking on the occasion Mooshahary retorted that the quest to know one’s own self is what drives people to adopt spirituality. “Geeta tries to explain the meaning of life by explaining Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. It makes us realise what is right karma, it does not lead one abandon karma. Today what we call knowledge gathered from different sources as internet, television, social media etc. is basically information because it is devoid of spirituality. Consequently, such knowledge does not help us curb corruption, immorality, violence etc,” Mooshahary said.
C K Das stated that soul is the immortal observer and body is destructive. “Whereas the mind is like a monkey, constantly wavering, it can make our life better when disciplined. When we can focus our mind it creates energy just like water when passes through a dam produces electricity. Yoga is about mind and not body-building, although it exerts a very positive impact on the body,” Das stated.
The ‘Revelation –True essence of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita’ organised by Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vidyalaya at GMCH Auditorium on Friday evening was iugurated by Governor Banwarilal Purohit on Friday evening.
“The teaching of the Bhagavad Gita is a constant companion to men in every walk of life, be it adversities or prosperities,” the Governor said during his iugural speech.
Quoting Swami Vivekanda, Purohit said that Indian culture is the most ancient at the same time very strong because of its deep rooted faith in the essence of religion. He also said that though in the past several attempts were made to disintegrate this composite Indian culture all the attempts were failed because of its strong root.
Purohit also reiterated the message from the Bhagavad Gita-‘Work is worship’ and asked everybody to follow that in letter and spirit. He also called upon everybody to be theist and do good work for the betterment of the humanity because serving men is equivalent to serving God. He also advocated for simple living but with highest mission and vision towards life.
The programme forms part of the worldwide initiative of Prajapati Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Viswa Vidyalaya to spread the message of peace, empowerment through Raja Yoga and inspire people to build bridges of unity amongst all cultures and creeds.
