“Seminar on Stress Management for Security Forces” @ Mysore

‘Inner Foes need to be eliminated for Stability of Mind’

                                -Sqn Ldr Ashok Gaba (Retd)

Mysuru-Jan 11: ‘In recent times people serving in security forces are undergoing more stressful situations than before and incidents of suicide have increased. Complications in human rapport may also be one of the reasons. Many negative emotional traits such as anger, jealousy, depression and others lead to mental fatigue and energy depletion. If one could prevent emergence of such situations in the mind, stability and concentration of the intellect is possible’ opined Sqn Ldr Ashok Gaba (Retd), Chairperson of Security Services Wing of Rajyoga Education and Research Foundation, Mount Abu.

‘If the people of our country are enjoying a good sleep every night, our security forces have to be commended for their unstinted commitment in guarding against both internal and external enemies. But they are at the same time suffering from mental tension, for which the basic remedy lies in correct and minimal thinking. The negative thoughts in the mind have to be rooted out and positive outlook has to be practiced under all given situations’, he observed.

K.S.Kabbur, Divisional Security Commissioner of Railway Protection Force of South Western Railway, Mysore Division participated as the chief guest and said that such seminars can enhance the efficiency of the officers and staff. Although many trainings are being arranged by the department,  inner strength can only be developed by attending such programs.

It was like learn while play experience. She never did classes to teach in an official pattern, but her simple words of daily instances taught us how to response in adverse circumstances.

Nalini didiji took everyone to Sakar Baba’s time, through shamshan yog, maakan mani, farishta walk etc. All the teachers were really overwhelmed by her presence and filled themselves with treasures of experience.

‘Bhagavad Gita – A Life Message’ Program

‘Society Safe when Non-violence is practiced’

Opine speakers in ‘Bhagavad Gita – A Life Message’ Program

Mysuru, Aug.12- ‘In today’s world everybody expects a life with safety and security. Increasing cases of violence, cruelty and misbehavior have disturbed the mindset of people. There is a dire necessity of eschewing violence in public life as demanded by God in Gita’.  Such an opinion in its entirety was expressed by speakers participating in the program ‘Bhagavad Gita – A Life Message’ organized at Kalamindir by Brahma kumaris, Mysuru today.

In this well attended program three important speakers spoke on the message given in the Gita to alleviate the problems affecting the common man today.  The Additional Secretary General of Brahmakumaris BK Brij Mohanji from Mount Abu, Prof. K. Keshavamurthy, a well known thinker of the city and BK Veenaji, an experienced Rajyogi from Sirsi spoke on the occasion.

BK Brij Mohanji expressed that whenever there is devaluing of virtues God incarnates and such a time seems to be imminent. Everyone wishes to see a land of divine values to replace devilish tendencies which appear to be omnipresent. Evil nature in human being is responsible for his sorrow and disarray. If we can follow Gandhiji in practicing truth and non-violence viciousness can disappear. For that to happen we have to comply with Satdharma and be soul conscious in our attitude.

Everyone will have to suffer sorrow or enjoy happiness according to their Karma. For the society to see spiritual health in all strata the quality of Karma has to get enhanced. When a patient follows the suggestion given by his Doctor and follows a restricted diet, in the same way if everyone does his Karma by surrendering it to God then it is possible that the society can be cleansed of its dirt and a healthy society is established.

Prof. K. Keshavamurthy, a well known Gita exponent said that Yoga transforms an ordinary Karma to a dexterous one when we follow Gita. People are experiencing sorrow and suffering when they are slaves to sense organs. When we establish mastery over our five sense organs the Karma we perform would become a skilled Karma. This is the real Yoga. Therefore to implement the knowledge of Bhagavad Gita we have to perform our Karma by establishing Ourselves in Swadharma. When we obtain the knowledge of the soul our mind gets clarity and the thoughts that are created are more astute.

BK Veenaji of Sirsi told that Gita enables a dumb to speak and a lame to counter a hill. Also it gives the knowledge of leading a life of simplicity and serenity. When we study Gita our self confidence gets a boost. When we understand that the soul is immortal and the body is a costume of the soul, the panic and apprehensions of the mind disappear.  Gita acts like a torch light in our life. But we have to work hard for our own salvation. We have to understand the very settle knowledge as to who I am. When the remembrance of God settles in the mind of a person he can lead a life devoid of egoism, jealousy, hatred and other vices.

BK Lakshmiji in her presidential address expressed that Gandhiji called Gita as his mother. A child believes in its mother in all respects and in the same way human beings can experience goodness in life when they are earnest in their study of Gita.

Smt.Indrani Anantharamu sang melodiously songs on Krishna. BK Ramachandra Rao welcomed everyone. BK Sapna gave an account of the activities of Brahmakumaris. BK Krishnamurthy proposed vote of thanks. BK Ranganath compered the program. All the speakers were felicitated by presenting a memento of Krishna and Arjuna.
