Heart to Heart with “Heartfulness”
In this hectic modern world, where everyone is busy all times, bereft of even a moment of peace, meditation is a ritual we all need to follow. Convincing young and restless teenagers of the importance of meditation, though, can be a daunting task. However, the Heartfulness Institute managed to do just that, through a three-day session workshop at B.D.M International. Through lively interaction, thought-provoking video clips and guided ‘trial’ sessions of meditation, relaxation, spiritual cleaning and prayer, the volunteers of the Institute successfully instilled in the students’ mind that purity, indeed, weaves destiny.
The first session of the workshop was held on the 10th of April, where the students were introduced to the concept of ‘meditation on the heart’ for the very first time. The importance of retaining one’s childlike innocence and purity through meditation was beautifully explained by the senior volunteer of the Institute. This was followed by a short relaxation and meditation session. On the second day, the students underwent a ‘spiritual cleaning’ session, which was followed by a prayer and meditation session on the third day.
The three-day session workshop, thus, had a deep impact on the young minds and inspired them to adopt meditation as a way of living, in order to excel in the subject called ‘life’.
