The Significance of Guru Purnima

Floral background7 Guru Purnima is the day of reflection. It is the New Year for a spiritual seeker; for one who is on the path. Just like you have the calendar New Year on 1st January every year, for a spiritual seeker, the New Year is on Guru Purnima. It is a day of reflection; to review on one’s credits and debits and look at the balance sheet. It is a day to be grateful for all that we have achieved in the past year, and a day to resolve to do what we are here to do in the coming year. That is the essence of Guru Purnima. So feel grateful for all the blessings that you have received. Be grateful for all the knowledge, and see how knowledge has transformed life. Without the knowledge we will be no where – realizing this, feel grateful for all that has come our way, and celebrate! Thank all the masters of the tradition who have preserved this knowledge from ages, and brought it to us. It is very significant. Our body has millions of cells, and each cell has its own life. Many cells are being born every day and many are dying every day. So you are a walking and moving township. Just like how there are so many cities on the planet Earth and the Earth is moving around the Sun, in the same way, inside you there are so many cells, and so many living beings, and you are moving around. So you are a township yourself. Just like a beehive – there are so many bees that come and sit on a beehive because there is this one queen bee. If the queen bee goes away, the entire beehive disappears. In the same way, in our body there is a queen bee, which is the soul (atman), and if that goes, everything else disappears. Where is this atman or self? It is nowhere and everywhere, and that is what you are! Like there is fatherhood and motherhood, there is something called Guruhood as well, and you all have to play the role of Guruhood to someone or the other. Anyways, consciously or unconsciously you are all a Guru to somebody already because you do give advice, guidance, love and care to people, isn’t it? So now do it consciously, giving your hundred percent without expecting anything in return. This is living the Guru Principle. Know that there is no difference between you, the Divine and the Guru Principle. It all culminates into just one thing – the queen bee. And meditation is reposing in the atman. Today, ask for what you want and it will be bestowed. Go for the highest desire. The best wish is to desire for knowledge and freedom. Think about everything in your life that you can be grateful for, and ask what you want for the future. And bless others; this is the time to bless people. Just receiving is not enough, we need to also bless those who are in need. Via:official Posted by: Himanshu Kumar

Youth Leadership Training Program | Our Approach | Youth Development

The brainchild of H H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the Youth Leadership Training Program was conceived of as a project that went hand-in-hand with another pet project of his, the 5H program, which is an umbrella social initiative that makes a huge difference in the world by uplifting Health, Hygiene, Homes, Human values, and Harmony in diversity. The aim of the program is to encourage sustainable development, while uplifting individuals and communities at the grassroots so that they become self-reliant, both socially and economically.

The YLTP has been the 5H program’s secret of success. The graduates of the YLTP program who show exceptional leadership qualities and commitment are designated as Yuvacharyas (literally: Youth Leaders). They become empowered rural entrepreneurs, and form a team of motivated and committed volunteers who are instrumental in implementing the 5H program in villages, bringing about social reform and economic independence.

As part of their education, the youth are given intensive training sessions, which include information on:

  • Leadership skills: shraddha (faith), sangha (network) and saahas (courage)
  • How to build a connected, cohesive team atmosphere, which nourishes a sense of belonging
  • Daily physical exercise, uniquely powerful breathing techniques, daily yoga and meditation
  • Practical knowledge for stress free living
  • Traditional Art and Culture development
  • Knowledge of Health and Hygiene; sexual health, HIV-AIDs, and female feticide
  • Gender Equality
  • Preserving the Environment and living in harmony with nature
  • Traditional Agricultural techniques and natural / organic farming
  • Creative exploration
  • A drug, alcohol, and tobacco free environment (De-addiction)
  • Legal literacy: Dowry Act, Juvenile Justice Act, Child Marriage, Restraint Act, and Child Labor (prohibition and regulation act)
  • Ayurvedic treatment

What are the elements of YLTP that make it so successful?

As H H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says: “Instead of thinking, ‘What about me?’, ‘What can I gain from this world? ‘, think ‘What can I do for the world?’! When everyone considers what they can only contribute to society, you will have a divine society”.

It is this spirit of changing the focus from the self to the society, and the world as a whole, that brings about a transformation in youth. This transformation is done through a number of unique processes and knowledge sessions, which enable the participants to find their center and become able engines of social transformation. Gone is their self-doubt and angst; their hesitation and worry is replaced by a new-found self confidence and an  enthusiasm to serve society.

The Yuvacharyas are trained to create model villages – villages that are worth emulating by the rest of the world; villages that are Swaccha (clean), Sundara (beautiful), Subhadra (secure) and Sushikshit (educated). They do this by engaging in village group meetings, cleanliness drives, and awareness campaigns on various issues. They work on the grassroots level on diverse areas, and achieve remarkable results in such diverse areas as:

  • Health and Hygiene in Maharashtra
  • Trauma relief in suicide prone Vidharbha
  • Natural Resource Management (Drought Proofing)
  • Trauma relief in Naxalism affected areas of Chattisgarh
  • Anti-Conversion drive in Kerala and North Eastern states
  • Bridging the caste divide in Kerala
  • Re-assimilation of Naxalites in Andhra Pradesh
  • Tsunami relief in Tamil Nadu
  • Mass campaigns against female feticides

As part of their developmental activities, Yuvacharyas conduct free five day workshops called “Nav Chetna Shivirs” (also called “Breath-Water-Sound” internationally) for the villagers. This workshop creates awareness among villagers about the 5H and other local issues, providing a unique combination of breathing and knowledge that frees the mind of stress; helping them find the center that will provide the foundation for their growth as an individual and the village as a collective.

Day after day, rural youth in India are waking up to the fact that their responsibilities lie in far more than just solving their own problems, and that it is they who will form the backbone of a new India.

The vision of H H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is creating a wave of transformation in the country.Lakshminarayanan now says, “I feel a huge change. I can tackle any problem now. I am eager to begin working in villages… they are waiting for me!” A resurgent India is being built.

Former President APJ Abdul Kalam, the ‘missile man’ who became popular as ‘People’s President’ died on Monday evening after he suffered a massive cardiac arrest and collapsed while delivering a lecture at IIM Shillong.

Some of his inspirational quotes  will be remembered always like:

If you want to shine like Sun, first burn like Sun

It is Very easy to defeat someone but hard to win someone.

Be more dedicated to making solid achievements than in running after swift but synthetic happiness.
