Apart from our monthly bhajan on 15 June, we had the following events:
16 June – Joint Yoga session with Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) in light of International Yoga Week at Helensvale Community Centre.
A wonderful stretching and breathing session on ‘Vilakshan Yog’ which was wonderful for the body, mind and spirit. The plan is to have a monthly session going forward. We are looking at getting sponsorship to buy the yoga mats for those interested in attending the monthly session.
20 June – Joint sponsorship with Griffith University on MK Angajan’s talk on “8 Daily habits of highly happy people” at Nathan Campus, Griffith University.
A scintillating talk by Shri MK Angajan on the practical daily habits to balance life to experience happiness and some habits are as follows:
- Be grateful for everything you have and are given, Count your blessings as whatever you focus on you get even more;
Practice Dravya yagna (offerings to others welfare), and higher than this is Tapo yagna (dedicating yourself to spiritual service), and higher than this is Yoga Yagna (emotional/ unconditional love), and still higher is Gnana Yagna (sacrificing oneself to spread knowledge/ experience to others);
- Forgive – try and put yourself on the other person’s shoe and don’t harbor revenge if you want peace of mind;
Don’t expect anything from friends and family. Do whatever you can and don’t expect a return;
- Do what is Right and don’t lose yourself in trying to impress others. Be independent and don’t succumb your values because of what others may think of you; and
- Wish well for everyone even your enemy as the law of reciprocity works every time. The law of reciprocity states that for every action there is an equal reaction, so whatever you do, good or bad, you get it back immaterial of, if the person doing it to you is good or bad.
