Health and Success! What more a person can ask in life?
Yes, that sounds fantastic; isn’t it? Here we will briefly explain the principles of Brahmavidya. We do hope that it will inspire you to join the Brahmavidya class and verify the efficacy of these methods by your own personal experience.
But, Health and Success are so different from one another! Health is of the Body, whereas Success is related to so many different things. How can Brahmavidya help to achieve both?
It is quite true that Health and Success appear to be very different from each other. Yet both these are dependent upon following the Order of Life. All truth is hidden and if we limit our observation only to the appearance we can never comprehend the truth. One may say that every scientific discovery is a proof of this. ‘Appearances are deceptive’. For example, the earth looks quite flat, but actually it is round; it appears that the sun rises every morning in the East, but actually there is no sunrise.
As the modern science tells us about the laws of the material universe, Brahmavidya tells us about deeper truths about your life, my life – human life! When we follow these laws in our life, it makes our life orderly. And what we call as Health or Success is nothing but ORDER.
How is it useful to a common man in his daily life?
Brahmavidya teaches that every human being is potentially divine. Hence he has within him all the power required to overcome his difficulties and problems. Brahmavidya gives definite methods by which a person can overcome all of his physical and mental problems and lead a healthier, more successful and happier life.
Can we say Brahmavidya is a science of happy life? What methods are taught in Brahmavidya?
Yes, Brahmavidya is a Science of Life teaching human beings the spiritual laws of life. These Spiritual laws operate in human life through Breath and Thought. We cannot think of life without Breath or Thought. Hence Brahmavidya teachings emphasize on Breath and Thought, which are the basic elements of life.
Though we are using Breath and Thought right from our birth no one has ever taught us correct way of Breathing or Thinking. You will be surprised to know that average person uses only 10% of his lungs capacity. Brahmavidya teaches a) Spiritual Breathing Exercises, which improve breathing and b) Meditation techniques, which improve thinking. The Breathing Exercises purify the body and Meditation purifies the mind.
Which ailments are cured with Brahmavidya?
Brahmavidya is not like a medicine, which is meant for a particular ailment. It is a system, which helps to remove root cause of illness and promote health. Breathing Exercises and Meditation have been found useful to get rid of asthma and other breathing troubles such as chronic cold & cough, high blood pressure, spondilitis, backache, heart trouble, joints pain and many other ailments.
The practice also improves mental outlook of the person and makes him more positive, cheerful, optimistic and confident. Due to better physical and mental health a person can do his daily work more efficiently. This can make him more successful at his job, his business or his profession.
How much time one has to devote for these Breathing Exercises and Meditation?
Depending upon the level of interest and availability of time one can devote more time, but minimum requirement is 20 minutes for Breathing Exercises in the morning and 20 minutes for Meditation at night. The methods are simple yet very effective. Any person above the age of 18 years can learn and practice without any difficulty.
What is the Origin of this teaching?
This is a very ancient system of Spiritual Practice or Sadhana. The System of Practice originated in India, then migrated to Tibet and has now come back to us from Tibet.
