So the most awaited ‘Anandotsav’ was accomplished on 13th May. And the success of the program conveys that we (The Art of Living, Buxar) are going forward towards our goal of making people aware of the art of living life. May be the speed is a bit slower, but it is consistent. And after all there is an old saying “Slow and steady wins the race”.
The program was sponsored by Shemrock Play School Buxar, Cambridge Senior Secondary School Buxar, Raj Kishore Jewellers, Ranjay Kumar Pandey (Sonvarsha) and Kirloskar.
Before the commencement of the program ‘Anandotsav’, we had given the tag line as ‘Happy Buxar – Healthy Buxar. Now we just want to add a word to the tagline to make it more sensible ‘Happy, Healthy & Enriched Buxar. A person may collect huge property, but he/she cannot gain happiness, relaxation and peace without spiritual Estates. And Guruji (Shri Shri Ravishankar) has shown us the path named as ‘Art of Living’ which will guide one and all to gain the spiritual Estates. We (The Art of Living, Buxar) will convey the same to every citizen of the district. ‘Anandotsav’ is a step for the same.
So the program was celebrated on the occasion of 61st birthday of Guruji and the program started with ‘Gurupuja’ and it was followed by Satsang, Knowledge Session and Meditation. After Gurupuja Mr. Shrikant Mishra (Apex member of Art of Living), Mr. Sanjay Tiwari (MLA, Buxar), Shravan Tiwari (Secretary, Red Cross Society) and Staydev Prasad (President, Chamber of Commerce) jointly Lighted the lamp before proceeding further in the program. A dance program was also organised and Ayush, Nehal and Akshat collected claps from the audience. Apart from that Vineet Sarraf, Amit Mishra, Ranjay Pandey, Himanshu, Anand, Vikash, Manoj, Ashwani, Hemdas, Dr. Raj, Neeraj, Aditya, Rajiv Ranjan, Jitesh, Sudhanshu, Ajay, Sanjay, Kameshwar, Manindra Mohan and many others put their maximum effort to make the program a successful step towards the dream ‘Happy, Healthy & Enriched Buxar’.
During the last hour of the program, Mrs. Varsha Pandey and Mrs. Saraswati Akshma Nath addressed the audience. The only issue, they addressed, was to make Buxar happy, healthy and enriched. Mrs. Sarsawati Akshma Nath is a singer and usually performs in Programs and courses organized by The Art of Living. She performed in Anandotsav as well. She was assisted by the music given by Mr. Sanjiv Kumar, Mr. Dharmesh Kumar, Mr. Omkar Prasanna and Mr. Gopal.
Mr. Gautam Kumar (SDM, Buxar) was also the part of the audience. He was very happy with the content of the program. Apart from him, people present in the program appreciated the program very much. They had a new experience.
The program was concluded by thanks giving to sponsors, AOL members, Participants and the valuable audience and the same was done by Mr. Deepak Pandey.
We (Members of Art of Living, Buxar) are completely dedicated towards the wellness of Buxar. We can make it more successful with your contributions. Taking birth in a society, which is not that beautiful, is not our fault. But doing nothing for the society is our fault. We need to think about making our society, locality and city as beautiful as possible. It does not require too much time of yours. It requires only half an hour of yours. Probably all of us (the citizens of the city) are able to contribute.
Anandotsav is just the first step towards our dream. We have to climb lot many to reach to the sky.The Art of Living, Buxar will keep on organising programs and courses to make its dream a success.
We will keep on moving and our feet will not stop,
Coz we don’t want the cup, the aim is to be on top.
For every hurdles and problems we are ready,
Our city will definitely be Healthy and Happy

‘Ananndotsav’ the program to be organised on the evening of May 13th, 2017 had become the priority for members of The Art of Living Buxar. As the dream is big, and has to be implanted on a larger scale, obviously it required a huge awareness among the citizens of the district. All the members started working on making people aware around 15 days before the eve of the program. They gave the maximum efforts of theirs. The first priority for them was the program. Businessmen left their businesses on their helpers and sometime they kept their businesses closed. Working professionals contributed after their working hours. Students rescheduled their study timings. House-wives managed their works in a manner so that they could give proper time for the preparation of the program. And one thing was common in everyone’s routine and that was the lesser timing they could manage to sleep during last 1012 days. So works were divided in different parts, as the awareness was to be spread on a larger scale. Banks, Schools, colleges, government and private offices, Temples, Mosques, Churches, Gurudwars, Shops and people in person were contacted. Different people were assigned different places. Apart from that people visited different villages under the districts. They distributed invitations to one and all. Banners and hoardings were put by the members on suitable places. E-Rikshaw-” प्रभात फेरी ” was organised. All the members worked even in the hot sun. The distance did not loosen their patience. Hopefully, the workers’ patience will labour will not go in vain and we will have a large audience for the program on 13th May and the objective of the program will meet. Team AOL is hoping for the success of the mission ‘Happy Buxar & Healthy Buxar’.
Mrs. Varsha Pandey also organized Sahaj Samadhi Meditation along with DSN. The objective of the course is to reach to true relaxation with the help of meditation. The meditation technique taught in the program helps the practitioner in getting relieved from stress. Regular practice of this can transform the quality of life of the practitioners.
The following are the benefits of the program:
Better Physical Health
