Life is valuable. It has some purpose and aim. It becomes self discipline when one considers oneself valuable; one will take care of oneself in all ways. The meaninglessness of life results in mental depression and one may commits suicide also. When we don’t values our life we don’t values other life either. Life is for achieving some higher ideals, the highest of which is God realization. Like the real purpose of a seed is to manifest the tree within, taking the help of water etc., the real purpose of life is to manifest this ideal God within, taking advantage of all the necessities that are provided in life.
Worldly ideals like acquiring wealth, power and position will not give real meaning and happiness to life, for they are less valuable than life itself. Life is more valuable than anything in this world, since its human life that gives value to everything.
The warmth and comfort of happiness is hidden with the self when individuals turn within and take strength from the internal powers of peace and silence. At present some make effort to earn wealth. Believing that will bring happiness. Some who have wealth may not have health, and that causes unhappiness. Some seeks happiness through profession, relationships etc. Yet however such measures may bring much happiness, they are temporary and limited sources of the material world. We are looking happiness outside, not inside ourselves and that is why even though we have built up such a wonderful affluent society, we have all the comforts, we have been unable to create a society of great happiness! That’s why the Upanishad, a holy scripture tell us, if you want real happiness, search in the right place, look […]

“Yoga day is India’s Pride” said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, when on December 11, 2014, the UN decided to declare June 21st as the International day of Yoga.
He also said that it was India’s responsibility to ensure that the right spirit of yoga is conveyed to everyone.
Its probably a result of this sensible decision by the UN, and “the right spirit” of the Indian officials, that the Goverment of India, has introduced a “Yoga Visa” for tourists visiting India to learn Yoga.
Following the success of Swami Vivekananda in the late 19th and early 20th century, Yoga became popular in the Western world, as a system of physical, mental, and spiritual practice or discipline, that aims to transform body and mind. Since then, students have flocked to India to learn Yoga, explore their spiritual side and to awaken their kundalini!
Until recently, the wanderlust Yogi, could study yoga from any yoga institution by visiting India on a “Tourist Visa” or a “Student Visa”. However “Toursit visas” normally have a duration of only 6 months (180 days) and “Student Visas” had formalities like going to the Foreigner’s Registration Office (FRO) at the police headqurters and getting other formalities sorted.
Applying for a “Yoga Visa” will require the student to provide a letter from a Yoga Institute recoginsed by the Ministry of Home affairs, Govt. Of India where they will study. It is important to know that in India, the authorities and Yoga schools use the term “Yoga Visa” but this is not a term used by any visa service center or embassy where the visa will be obtained – they only recognize “Student Visa”. The “Student Visa” will last the duration of the Yoga program which can be up to 5 years and can be extended […]
