AS A WAY OF LIFE

Airports India - - CONTENTS -

Yoga has be­come a house­hold name not only in In­dia but across the globe. Why is it such an at­trac­tive pur­suit?

Ev­ery form of yoga has its asanas, which in­clude pranayam, dhyan, kriyayein, etc. We ex­plain the sci­ence be­hind yoga as ‘jee­van ka jaan vi­gyan hai’ (the life of liv­ing world is sci­ence). We mo­ti­vate peo­ple to learn and prac­tice dif­fer­ent pos­tures of yoga for dif­fer­ent rea­sons, apart from keep­ing fit and fine. These an­cient ex­er­cises have im­mense po­ten­tial to cure ev­ery dis­ease, in­clud­ing chronic ones.

Yoga com­prises all the es­sen­tial el­e­ments of life such as knowl­edge, emotions, and ac­tion. It has the power to cure all lifestyle­based dis­eases. If one prac­tices an­u­lom vilom pranayam for 15 min­utes, it will cure high blood pres­sure, while ka­palb­hati pranayam has the power to cure thy­roid. A 30-minute prac­tice of ka­palb­hati will cure hepati­tis and col­i­tis dis­eases. Sim­i­larly, if one does an­u­lom vilom and ka­palb­hati pranayam for 30 min­utes each, it will cure chronic dis­eases.

Could you give some ex­am­ples of yoga cur­ing chronic dis­eases?

There are many such ex­am­ples. We have wit­nessed peo­ple suf­fer­ing from the third and fourth stage of bone can­cer, brain can­cer, and breast can­cer cured just by ex­er­cis­ing an­u­lom vilom for an hour ev­ery day. Peo­ple are aware that yoga makes the body healthy but we stress that yoga has the power to change the en­tire life of a per­son. We pro­mote yoga as a life­style, as a treat­ment for in­cur­able dis­eases, for peace of mind, and med­i­ta­tion. We con­nect yoga with the de­vel­op­ment of IQ among chil­dren, con­cen­tra­tion among women, elders, etc. We em­pha­sise the fact that if you want to have all round men­tal and phys­i­cal de­vel­op­ment, yoga is the on­estop so­lu­tion. We en­cour­age women with in­fer­til­ity is­sues to do yoga and re­sults are 100 per cent. We have done a de­tailed ex­per­i­ment re­gard­ing this, and now it is part of the life of crores of peo­ple across the globe. I’m very con­fi­dent that the whole world will adopt it shortly as it is the only way to world peace, health, har­mony, and pros­per­ity.

Peo­ple al­ways com­plain that they want to prac­tice some asanas but due to the paucity of time and tight sched­ules they fail to do so. Life is very busy, and dis­eases such as high blood pres­sure, hy­per­ten­sion, can­cer, etc. re­sult from an un­or­gan­ised life­style. What is your ad­vice re­gard­ing this?

Time can never be a con­straint. Even if you don’t have enough time some key yoga pos­tures can be prac­tised in just 10 min­utes: an­u­lom vilom and ka­palb­hati for 3 min­utes each and three times bhra­mari pranayama (the hum­ming bee breath). These can be per­formed on a flight, in a car, or of­fice. And if you have some more time, just do surya na­maskar five times and
