THE IMPORTANCE OF SCIENTIFIC AND SPIRITUAL COMPONENT OF LIFE LIKE YOGA AND MEDITATION IN DEVELOPING THE POSITIVE MINDSET
Friends, after deeply studying the ancient Vedic texts like Vedas, Upannishads, Bhagwad Gita and other religious scriptures like Holy Quran, Holy Bible, Holy Dhammapad, Holy Tripitak, Holy Guru Granthsahib etc. and their religious practices like Yoga, Meditation, Namaz, Vipassana etc. I realized that the methodology and practises may be different but the ultimate aim of each religion is to seek the ultimate truth / ultimate reality – the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient and formless god!
Spiritualism or Religious Practices in different faiths take over where science and technology cease to provide any solution / answer for enriching our lives and making them worthy as a Human Being. It gives the moral courage and ethical strength as well as Purity of Thought, Purity of Mind and Purity in each and every action, which is so essential for achieving the desired objectives of Peace and Harmony.
The mind-boggling scientific developments in various fields have made it possible to provide all kinds of physical comforts and means of enjoyment in human life. However, if your mind and soul / heart is not comfortable and at peace, then friends, will it make you truly happy and satisfied by only living a life of luxury derived from physical/bodily or sensuous comforts through various means of enjoyment? It is equally important that we should be spiritually elevated as well and be able to get rid of the vices like lust, greed, anger, jealousy, hatred and envy to provide real comfort to our mind and heart as well – Sat-Chit-Anand– completely contented life.
The Indian practice of Yoga and Meditation are particularly helpful in developing a positive mindset, which would ultimately lead in reducing the chaos, confusion and disorder in our mind, body and heart and ultimately within our society and the entire world as well leading to Harmony and Peace for the mankind.
