Stress Management Seminar
Los Angeles, Feb 09, 2009
By Dilip Butani
A Stress Management Seminar was organized by Siddha Samadhi Yoga
on February 7, 2007 at the Sindhu Center. Shri Sanjay Thakkar, a
senior trainer at the Siddha Samadhi Yoga was the speaker. Vishakha
Purandare, the local SSY head, was the main organizer.
Sanjy ji in his lecture said that in these days of globalization,
the expectation from individuals have gone up sky high - top notch
productivity, super intelligence and supernatural intuitions, being
a team player, an ability to inspire/ motivate groups of people
with diverse interests, remaining calm and composed even in the
most trying circumstances.
However, the so called development of the world has left individuals
stressful, emotionally weak, impatient and discontented instead
of helping them to do whatever they do more happily with the least
of the resources. Today, chronic diseases like blood pressure, diabetes
have become a part of progress and prosperity. He experiences chaos
wherever he is – home, office, universities, classrooms –
instead of creating a peaceful environment & harmony for himself
and everyone. All the essential virtues such as good health, a living
based on potential, creativity, patience, mutual trust etc. are
lost in manipulating a successful life.
As per Sanjay ji, today, there is lack of urge and capacity to
relate with the people and environment, which is resulting in Emotional
Stress. Next, there is a lack of urge and capacity to take up further
endeavors and challenges, which is causing Mental Stress. He further
said that there is also lack of urge and capacity toward one’s
own life and self, which is dampening ones own spirit of living
and causing Spiritual Stress.
And as if all this is not enough, there is a lack of urge and capacity
to have more pleasure in our lives. This is a Sensory Stress. Emotional
Stress has caused severe damage to Interpersonal Relations and Family
Bonding even in well developed societies. Mental Stress has caused
severe damage to productivity and efficiency of Individuals and
to the sense of fulfillment from ones own work and tasks, leading
to increase in destructive tendencies.
Spiritual Stress has caused severe damage to Individual’s
Health and overall well being, leading to over indulgent and rash
life styles, eating and sleeping disorders, subsequently causing
wide range of diseases. Sensory Stress has caused severe damage
to Economy, leading to recession. Ancient Yogic wisdom has an approach
to cater to an individual’s overall personality which is a
blend of ones Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Physiological
& spiritual characteristics.
The Total Stress Management Program, formally known as Siddha Samadhi
Yoga is one such program Designed and Created by Poojya Guruji Shri
Rishi Prabhakar to enhance the over all personality of an individual
and open up various possibilities in ones life to enable oneself
to live up to his true potential. Thus making him very Happy, Joyful,
Peaceful, Productive and Prosperous, in short Stress Free Individual
at all Levels.
Basically stress management is a science of managing happiness.
This approach ensures that the person becomes inspirational to others
to do whatever is needed voluntarily, with dedication and self assumed
responsibility. Along with providing stimulus to Economy which is
required to relieve from stress at one level, let us also provide
necessary assistance to our Emotion, Energy and Enthusiasm. Along
with opening more Job Opportunities for people let us also create
awareness for values of Care and Share.
