Theme Elucidation

Despite unimaginable materialistic comforts that man has created for himself through scientific research and technology he is far from happy. It means materialistic advancement may have made his life physically comfortable but in return it has made it diseased and he feels mentally tormented and distressed. He lives in a palace, flies in his private jet and eats the choicest food nevertheless he is mentally a wreck. He doesn’t enjoy spending time with the members of his family. The materialistic affluence has robbed him of his inner happiness. He lives under a perpetual fear, fear of losing wealth and position. He suffers from numerous diseases like aids, cancer, depression, obesity, blocked coronary arteries and spends millions of rupees on doctors, drugs and hospitals. Instead of any relief his agony goes on increasing. He has never had time to think as to why he is so unhappy? What is the real cause of his diseases and mental agony? It is because of his stressful state and unhealthy lifestyle. His disregard for nature and its scenic grandeur has only added to his agony. He has never tried to look within ever for a moment. He remains ignorant of the inner world which is infinitely blissful and a source of real happiness. At present human suffering has already reached its pinnacle. Can there be universal wellness? Can this state of agony which every individual finds himself in be ended or mitigated? Yes, it is possible to get answers to these questions. We have decided to organize an international encounter from Feb. 17 to 20, 2011 at Jaipur. We invite you to come and explore. We believe that yoga and meditation can ensure universal wellness unfolding before us a treasure of holistic health.
