Jain Ashram in Birmingham

At 5:00 pm, we went to the Jain Ashram, which was established by the followers of Acharya Sushil Muni. There the programme was to be held. Out of the 25 persons present in the programme, two were medical doctors. I informed the gathering about Preksha Mediation and Adhyatma Sadhana Kendra in detail, and all the activities carried out there and their value in contemporary life.

I guided them through the four steps of Preksha Meditation with Perception of Deep Breathing. After that, a lecture on Arthritis and joint pain was given and how Preksha Mediation can help to get relief. Nirmalaji guided them in how to perform the Asanas and showed how to be free from pain in different parts of the body. After the lecture, Nirmalaji gave guidance to 8 people how to be relieved from knee and back pain. They all were happy to feel relief in their knee and neck pain after the session.

Perception of Deep Breathing


In the morning, we had some treatment and consultation sessions at Arvinderji's house. He, his mother and wife received the treatment and felt better after it. We reached Jain Ashram at 10:00 am. We started the programme with Anuvrat Geet (Anuvrat Song, composed by Acharya Tulsi) and the chanting of Arham. My lecture was on Stress and its Management. Mr. Rajiv Jain, nephew of Sri Arvinder Jain, came with all members of his family.

After the lecture, questions about anger and stress were put up. In this programme, Mr. Jitendra Delariya of Jasol came with his wife, who is a doctor, and his brother and brother-in law with their wives. We saw the city by car with Arvinder Jain. We got the information that Birmingham is the 2nd biggest city of UK. Migrants from India, Bangladesh and Pakistan are living there, who are mostly businessmen.


In the morning, we had a meditation session and gave treatment to Mataji, Anju & the wife of Arvinder Jain. We reached the Jain Ashram at 10:00 am. Renu and Anju came later, as they brought lunch for the participants. In this programme, Dr. Manoj Malu of Sujangarh came with his wife; two brothers-in-law of Mr. Arvinder Jain from London also came to join the programme. I gave lecture on Hypertension, Diabetes and Heart Disease. There was a good response from the audience and all the queries were answered to their satisfaction. After lunch, I guided them through Meditation and Deep Relaxation; Nirmalaji guided them to H.R.E and Asanas. We finished the programme at 4:00 pm, returned to London with Mr. Arvinder Jain's brother-in-law, where we arrived at 10:00 pm.
