Kolkata, May , 2019: In order to bring the benefits of meditation to people of all walks of life, Heartfulness Institute has launched the Dhyanotsav initiative across the country. Dhyanotsav is a free of cost 3-day masterclass wellness fest that focuses on teaching techniques of Heartfulness Relaxation, Meditation and Cleaning free of cost to everyone.
In Tier 1 and 2 cities the gatherings host over 5000 people, whereas Gram Dhyanotsav is for Gram Mandals and Villages, attracting 700 to 1000 people at each event. The three meditation classes are designed to teach everyone how to include meditation as a part of their daily lives. Transmission brings something unique to Heartfulness, and the results include increased productivity, happiness, clear decision-making and better relationships for those who practise daily. The programs also include Yoga asanas and some interesting brain training exercises for the participants.
Commenting on the initiative, the Heartfulness Guide, Kamlesh Patel, also known as Daaji, said, “Our natural state of being is blissful and in touch with our inner nature. Meditation transforms us to that state where the mind can combat the challenges of day-to-day life, effectively. Decisions that help shape an efficient life become a habit. An individual’s experience of oneself and the world is elevated. Through Dhyanotsav, we are offering the benefits of Heartfulness meditation to millions across the country.”
The entry to the fest is free and held in stadiums, government offices, corporates and other easily accessible places. People will experience relaxation, mental detox, and meditation to connect with the heart and become more balanced and peaceful.
Mr Sanjay Lalbhai, Chairman and Managing Director of Arvind Limited said, “The striking aspect of Dhyanotsav is that it aims to touch the lives of people across the country and not just in cities. It is a good opportunity for everyone to take advantage of the events that are being hosted close to their location and experience the benefit of meditation.”
Dhyanotsav sessions have already been held successfully in Karimnagar, Khammam, Rajahmundry, Surat, Mumbai, IICT-Hyderabad and Calicut in the last one month, attracting an average of over 5,000 people per event and touching the lives of more than 1,50,000 already. In the next two months, districts of Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and West Bengal will witness Dhyanotsav.
Mr Ronald Ross, Collector of Mahbubnagar said, “The Dhyanotsav initiative has seen a tremendous response in the Telangana regions. I have received feedback that the 3-day sessions have helped the participants to understand how meditation can help them in their daily lives. I am sure that this can have a very positive impact on society.”
Mr Ashwin Sanghi, best-selling author in the thriller genre said, “Having experienced Heartfulness recently, I can say that the positive impact this form of meditation has is tremendous.
