    • BEST SOLUTION
    • It gives a three pronged attack to remove the impurities that cover the body, mind and soul.
    • First ‘Tapas.’ This is best followed by taking to right food and living habits and practice of ‘Asana’ and ‘Pranayama’.
    • The next is ‘Svadhyaya’ which is best done by ‘chanting’ and ‘meditation’.
    • The third and most important part is ‘Isvara Pranidhana’ the ‘attitude of submission’.
  • YOGA FOR WELLNESS-YOUNGER GENERATION
    • YOGA PRACTICE FOR YOUTH SHOULD AIM AT CULTIVATING THE ATMA GUNAS AS GIVEN IN THE DHARMA SUTRAS OF RISHI GAUTAMA
  • YOGA FOR WELLNESS-YOUNGER GENERATION
    • " Daya " implies love for all creatures, such love being the very fulfillment of life. There is indeed no greater happiness than that derived by loving others. Daya is the basis of all qualities. 
    • Kshama " is patience. One kind of kshama is patiently suffering disease, poverty, misfortune and so on. The second is forgiveness and it implies loving a person even if he causes us pain and trouble. 
  • YOGA FOR WELLNESS-YOUNGER GENERATION
    • " Anasuya " is ‘being free from jealousy’. We ought to have love and compassion for all and ought to be patient and forgiving even towards those who do us wrong. We must not envy people their higher status even if they be less deserving of it than we are and, at the same time, must be mature enough to regard their better position as the reward they earned by doing good in their previous life. 
    • " Sauca " is derived from "suci", meaning cleanliness. Purity is to be maintained in all matters such as bathing, dress, food. 
  • YOGA FOR WELLNESS-YOUNGER GENERATION
    • "Anayasa" . It is the opposite of "ayasa" which denotes effort, exertion, etc. Anayasa means to have a feeling of lightness, to take things easy. One must not keep a long face, scowl or keep lamenting one's hardships. If you lose your cool you will be a burden to yourself as well as to others. Anayasa is a great virtue. In many of our rituals there is much bodily exertion. Here Anayasa means not to feel any mental strain. Obstacles, inevitable to any work or enterprise, must not cause you any mental strain. You must not feel any duty to be a burden and must develop the attitude that everything happens according to the will of the Lord. 
    • "Mangala",  is auspiciousness. There is mangala or an auspicious air about happiness that is characterised by dignity and purity. One must be cheerful all the time and not keep growling at people on the slightest pretext. This itself is extremely helpful, to radiate happiness wherever we go and exude auspiciousness. It is better than making lavish gifts and throwing money about. 
  • YOGA FOR WELLBEING-YOUNGER GENERATION
    • " Akarpanya " Miserliness is the quality of a krpana or miser. "Akarpanya" is the opposite of miserliness. We must give generously and whole-heartedly. Akarpanya is the quality of a courageous and zestful person who can face problems determinedly.  " Aspriha " is the last of the eight qualities. "Spriha" means desire; a grasping nature. "Aspriha" is the opposite, being without desire. Desire is at the root of all trouble, all suffering and, all through the ages, it has been the cause of misfortunes. But to eradicate it from the mind seems an almost impossible task. By performing rites again and again and by constantly endeavouring to acquire the Atmic qualities one will eventually become desireless.

    • SOCIETY DOES NOT GO DOWN BECAUSE OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE CRIMINALS, BUT BECAUSE OF THE INACTIVITIES OF THE GOOD PEOPLE
