Wellness Festival – a dream come true..

Isn’t hard to imagine my thoughts spilled across your screen to be read without having your brain and the sense of vision in sync? I am sure you used your little thought process imagining that funny yet annoying scenario.

Well, this is exactly what I will be talking about in this blog; the reality behind interconnection and interdependence of our existence. This is the reason why our health  needs to be looked upon holistically, considering not only body but connections of mind, body, spirit, for human beings are multi dimensional creatures. After my own experiences of illness, I have been looking for answers…


Ayurveda explains this connection with a reference to 5 Koshas (sheaths or layers) that include the physical body (Annamayya), the layer of cosmic motion (Pranamaya), the emotional (Manamaya), the knowledgeable (Vijnanaamaya) and the last but not the least is the unconscious state of bliss (Anandamaya). All of these layers have to co-exist within us, in harmony, to maintain a good physical and mental condition. So you see being healthy was always essential!

Health and wellness festival was designed keeping this principal in mind. We saw a terrific amalgamation of Eastern wisdom and Western science and showcased a beautiful spectrum of celebration of health. The prominent scientists, yoga teachers, doctors and several spiritual gurus collaborated and shared their wisdom at the event (some of them had inspiring personal stories). And it all narrowed down to one essential idea of keeping your mind, body and soul in collaboration with each other so that we can enjoy a happy, healthy and fulfilled life.

On a healthy note, I would like my readers to start noticing how our breath and mind is connected. For instance, when we are angry our breath is shallow and fast and when we are relaxed, there’s deep breathing which is slow paced.

Leave your thoughts in the comments section, and as always I expect you to be well and in pink of health!

  3. Glad to know of your involvement in the Health and Wellness festival. I feel it is essential that such gatherings should take place throughout the country and make people aware how to lead a happy, healthy and fulfilled life.

    You had stated that breath and mind is connected and that when we get angry our breath is shallow and fast and when we are relaxed our breathing is slow. I have myself experienced this.


  4. Just went through your thoughtful esaay on mind, body and spirit. Its really nice and true about the interconnection between the mind and body. Body moves as per the direction of mind and mind always be refreshed as per the activities of our body. Nice, keep on writing !

      1. Thanks so much for remembering me. How are you doing? I am sure you would be busy with your own sansaar.
        Keep in touch madam.


  6. Balancing mind, body and spirit somehow always sounded like an abstract to me until my I started feeling that my body started to wither with the age and the tripod is getting bit out of balance 🙂 it is an experience which one has to go through , all you need an extra boost of momentum when the trigger is- the tripod is out of balance- to regain the balance….cant fathom the spiritual ether though whilst balancing mind, body and spirit but I will wait and watch till it starts to unfold 🙂 till then gaye ja
    ” Mausam ki sargam ko Sun
    kya ga raha hai sama
    Too bhi ga mere
    Sang gaye sara jahan
    Gaye ja, gaye ja, gaye ja”
    Keep blogging!

  9. Hi Manisha,
    Saw your post regarding Kinesiology.My dad is an expert in Kinesiology and Bio-Mechanics.He was the first Director of the National Institute of Rehabilitation Training and Research in Orissa about 30 kms from Bhubaneshwar city.He used to be the external examiner for examinations in theory and practicals in Medical Institutions and Medical Colleges all over India where Kinesiology and Biomechanics was taught.

    He has studied details of muscles and their range of movements in the human body when adopting postures like sitting cross legged and squatting which is not adapted in Western countries.This was done in the Montreal Institute of Rehabilitation in Montreal,Canada in 1971.Though my dad is 89 years old he is active now and can clarify your doubts if any.
