Stress Management Seminar

Los Angeles, Feb 09, 2009
By Dilip Butani

A Stress Management Seminar was organized by Siddha Samadhi Yoga on February 7, 2007 at the Sindhu Center. Shri Sanjay Thakkar, a senior trainer at the Siddha Samadhi Yoga was the speaker. Vishakha Purandare, the local SSY head, was the main organizer.

Sanjy ji in his lecture said that in these days of globalization, the expectation from individuals have gone up sky high - top notch productivity, super intelligence and supernatural intuitions, being a team player, an ability to inspire/ motivate groups of people with diverse interests, remaining calm and composed even in the most trying circumstances.

However, the so called development of the world has left individuals stressful, emotionally weak, impatient and discontented instead of helping them to do whatever they do more happily with the least of the resources. Today, chronic diseases like blood pressure, diabetes have become a part of progress and prosperity. He experiences chaos wherever he is – home, office, universities, classrooms – instead of creating a peaceful environment & harmony for himself and everyone. All the essential virtues such as good health, a living based on potential, creativity, patience, mutual trust etc. are lost in manipulating a successful life.

As per Sanjay ji, today, there is lack of urge and capacity to relate with the people and environment, which is resulting in Emotional Stress. Next, there is a lack of urge and capacity to take up further endeavors and challenges, which is causing Mental Stress. He further said that there is also lack of urge and capacity toward one’s own life and self, which is dampening ones own spirit of living and causing Spiritual Stress.

And as if all this is not enough, there is a lack of urge and capacity to have more pleasure in our lives. This is a Sensory Stress. Emotional Stress has caused severe damage to Interpersonal Relations and Family Bonding even in well developed societies. Mental Stress has caused severe damage to productivity and efficiency of Individuals and to the sense of fulfillment from ones own work and tasks, leading to increase in destructive tendencies.

Spiritual Stress has caused severe damage to Individual’s Health and overall well being, leading to over indulgent and rash life styles, eating and sleeping disorders, subsequently causing wide range of diseases. Sensory Stress has caused severe damage to Economy, leading to recession. Ancient Yogic wisdom has an approach to cater to an individual’s overall personality which is a blend of ones Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Physiological & spiritual characteristics.

The Total Stress Management Program, formally known as Siddha Samadhi Yoga is one such program Designed and Created by Poojya Guruji Shri Rishi Prabhakar to enhance the over all personality of an individual and open up various possibilities in ones life to enable oneself to live up to his true potential. Thus making him very Happy, Joyful, Peaceful, Productive and Prosperous, in short Stress Free Individual at all Levels.

Basically stress management is a science of managing happiness. This approach ensures that the person becomes inspirational to others to do whatever is needed voluntarily, with dedication and self assumed responsibility. Along with providing stimulus to Economy which is required to relieve from stress at one level, let us also provide necessary assistance to our Emotion, Energy and Enthusiasm. Along with opening more Job Opportunities for people let us also create awareness for values of Care and Share.
