Synergy Series: Sleep

For Part 4 of the Synergy Series, we’ll be talking about one of the most sought after elements of a healthy life...Sleep!

In Ayurveda, balanced sleep is one of the pillars of a healthy life, and just as important as diet. Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the most important things you can do to promote good health, happiness, and overall well-being.

Your ability (or inability) to get restful sleep at night can affect how you feel throughout the day.

“The Vedic Pandits, in their performances of Yagyas, make use of prescriptions which are preserved through the oral tradition of their parents. They are like the prescriptions for any medical use or medicine.

“It is the play and display of different reverberations, different frequencies. And the knowledge of these frequencies constructs the systems of Yagya. The Yagyas are not just the words, but properly, sequentially organized words of the Veda. Vedic words produce the effect. They make a resolution.

“Transforming one to the other―these are the plays and displays of the prescribed values of the Vedic sounds. It is a highly technical and highly systematized knowledge of frequencies. The knowledge of frequencies is the knowledge of the programs and procedures of different Yagyas. Different Yagyas for different things. It is all prescribed.” Maharishi, November 6, 2002

The Sankalpa (intention) of the next National Yagya will be:

A smooth transition to a safe, healthy, and prosperous nation―for all of its people.

Wednesday, July 15, is the final day to sign up.

At this most critical time, we hope that you will be more inspired than ever to give, and to give generously.

A Cure for the Virus of Racism

We can eliminate racism by integrating transcendental meditation into our educational systems to elevate our awareness to level of unity consciousness
The prevalence of racial prejudice has been like a viral infection in the physical structure of American society, but like with any virus, there is a cure. The time for the cure is NOW.

The first step to cure any disease is the acknowledgment that the disease exists. This is what we see currently happening in the world. All over the world, protests are erupting, people are marching and from across the globe, voices are calling out for freedom, justice and an end to the violation of human rights. An awareness that an injustice perpetrated against anyone anywhere in the world affects everyone in the world has emerged, and ignited the global conscience. There is a universal acknowledgment that racism exists and a global desire to eradicate it. The quality of empathy and compassion for the suffering of others is increasing in the world family.

The Nobel Prize Laureate, Nelson Mandela expressed this quality of the human heart beautifully:

No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

Nelson Mandela felt that education was the most powerful weapon one can use to change the world.
