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.
