Spiritual Health

Heal Mind, Body and Spirit with ‘Gayathri Mantra’

A scientifically proven mantra to obtain physical, mental and spiritual health (Holistic health). The ‘Gayathri Mantra’

Dear Readers, please note all that is written here are the outcome of my research and understanding of a Universal Prayer, the “Gayathri Mantra”.  Thanks to all the YouTube contributors and writers. References are all at the bottom.  This may not be a perfect explanation because my small mind can hold only so little of the Mystical knowledge of India’s Great Sage Vishwamithra.  There might be great scholars who can understand this better, I request my readers to forgive me if I have made any mistakes in this.

First of all, I was born in a Christian family and after learning our scriptures and reading the scriptures of all religions found the Universal truth: “All of us are souls who have taken our bodies as costumes to act in this Universe.  Once our part of acting ends we will leave our costumes (bodies) and go to our real home”. We are all striving towards a single goal to reach our Heavenly Father the Founder and Director of the Universe; using various paths and means”. Though our ultimate goal is one and the same the paths (Religions) are dividing us. Now my religion is humaneness. I love Gayatri Mantra and recite it daily several times of the day.  It really gives a positive energy and enthusiasm. Now let us go deep into its explanation by several great Pundits.

By the way Gayathri Mantra is not a prayer to the Hindu God’s, that’s only a misinterpretation of several religious leaders, it’s an Indian prayer to praise, worship and adore the almighty God who controls the Universe and it’s a scientifically proven powerful Hymn which energizes the whole body and creates holistic health.

Spiritual wellness

Spiritual wellness is described differently by each person, but the concept generally relates to one’s sense of purpose, life’s meaning, our relationship to other people and a self-awareness to these things.

Many define spirituality according to religious values while others find expression of spirituality through personal relationships or through nature. In all cases the AAEP agrees and believes that living a professional life full of meaning, purpose and rich relationships with others is both important and intrinsic to being an equine veterinarian.

Spiritual wellness provides us with systems of faith, beliefs, values, ethics, principles and morals. A healthy spiritual  practice may include examples of volunteerism, social contributions, belonging to a group, fellowship, optimism, forgiveness and expressions of compassion. Spiritual wellness allows one to live a life consistent with his or her own belief and moral systems, while we establish our feeling of purpose and find meaning in life events. Read more…
