So, it’s again a New Year!! The beginning of new hope, new resolutions, new transformations, and the development of a new you. It’s the starting of a new decade involving every soul’s plans to have thoughts that are new, refreshing, and full of innovative ideas.
Thus, to give these thought processes an extra edge and a new direction, Lovely Professional University, in collaboration with the Heartfulness organization, organized a 3-day fulfilling event, ‘Reset, Refresh and Re-Heart.‘ The event accentuated to begin 2021 as an era of Hope and Transformation and welcomed the catalysts of change, Yogrishi Swami Ramdev, Sister BK Shivani, Lifestyle coach Gaur Gopal Das, Spiritual Guide Daaji, and Indian film director Shekhar Kapur.
Day 1 of the iconic event themed upon “Cultivate Resilience Through Yoga & Meditation,” started with Heartfulness organization explaining the idea of meditation. Commencing the event, Shekhar Kapur invited Yogrishi Swami Ramdev and Spiritual Guide Daaji and said, “Both the gurus’ have spent their lives searching inside themselves, finding something eternal inside and then graciously with all humanity giving that to the world. Bestowing themselves to the world, so that individually everybody could find a way to change themselves, and therefore, causing collective change.”
Swami Ramdev and Spiritual Guide Daaji began their conversation with the virtual crowd with a Sanskrit shloka, “पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते । पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ॥,” meaning Parabrahma Purushottam Paramatma is complete in all ways. And this world originated from that Parabrahma is also perfect. Thus, even after removing the full from that full, it remains full & always perfect. Moving further, the two gurus’ stressing on the theme highlighted the importance of yoga and meditation in ones’ life.
Adding to their statements, Daaji said, “I think we have this tendency to acquire things the world over, & mediation has become something you must do. Why does everything have to become something we must do? Meditative life is a natural life. And we must remember that mediation is not only an essential part of breathing with the universe, but it is part of just being ourselves.” Meanwhile, Swami Ramdev said, “Our meditative nature and love together form who we are. And, meditation becomes necessary not because you are going to be a superhuman by meditating but because you are going to be essentially reminding yourself of being a human, an essential part of our eternity.”
After the short talk with Swami Ramdev and a meditation session, Spiritual Guide Daaji started his first session of the three meditation masterclass sessions planned by Heartfulness for‘Mastering Being.’ In this session, the crowd learned Heartfulness Relaxation for physical and mental calm & Heartfulness Meditation as the light source in your heart to take you deeper within.
The next two days of the iconic Reset, Refresh and Re-Heart event that is day 2, and day 3, the Heartfulness organization team along Daaji completed the three meditation masterclass sessions for ‘Mastering Being.’ Also, enduring with the themes “Release the Past Through Rejuvenation” & “Enabling Transformation Through Inner Connection,” Sister BK Shivani and Lifestyle coach Gaur Gopal Das enlightened the crowd regarding the role of meditation, yoga, and peace in rejuvenation and transformation. In their interaction with the virtual attendees, they said, “We are the creators of our destiny, and we are solely responsible for our happiness.” Adding further, they said, “Though we may not be having control over the external forces, we have control over our mind and the thought processes. And, we must regulate them in the right direction.”
Closing the iconic event for ‘Entering an era of Hope and Transformation’, the catalysts of change wished all the viewers a ‘Happy New Year’ and gave the message to start this new year with meditation, satvikta, purity, positivity, love, and encouraged the attendees to give up on lust, greed, anger, ego, and jealousy.
