The second week of November saw India’s first world assembly on ayurveda, yoga, and naturopathy. Ayuryog Expo was held at Indian Expo Centre & Mart in Greater Noida from 7–9 November 2019 and was the biggest platform in the domain of ayurveda and naturopathy. The expo was held with the aim of laying a concrete foundation and setting goals which would help these sectors in globally increasing their market share and customer profitability.
The convention was inaugurated in the presence of the Union Minister of State, Ministry of AYUSH, Sripad Yesso Naik, who was the chief guest of the ceremony. “This expo is a great opportunity to spread the word about the ayurvedic system of medicine globally. Ayurveda is considered by many scholars as the oldest healing science. It is often called the mother of all healing,” said Mr Naik while inaugurating the event. Dr Mahesh Sharma, member of parliament, was the guest of honour and Padmashri Dr H R Nagendra and Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha, secretary, Ministry of AYUSH, also presided over the event.
Bringing together world leaders in yoga, ayurveda, and naturopathy, the mega event shared its vision of robust growth by encouraging a 100 per cent FDI in AYUSH sectors in India. The ‘Mahakumbh of wellness’ witnessed stalwarts of AYUSH, thinkers, and researchers who spoke about this ancient healing system and how it can be incorporated with all other systems on a common platform. “While on one side of the event, we have gurus and yogis like Yogrishi Swami Ramdev Maharaj, Swami Amrta Suryananda Maharaja, Vishwaguru Mahamandaleshwar Paramhans, and Sri Swami Maheshwarananda Puri, on the other, we have scientific sessions led by the likes of Dr Lorenzo Cohen and Dr Sat Bir Singh Khalsa. This is to highlight that yoga and ayurveda are not merely a mumbo-jumbo science but evidence- and science-based,” stated Dr H R Nagendra in his keynote speech.
The sessions held by Yogrishi Swami Ramdevji Maharaj and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar were the main highlights during the four-day extravaganza. Swami Chidananda Saraswati from Rishikesh, Jain Acharya Dr Lokesh (founder of Ahimsa Vishwa Bharti), Dr Raghavendra Rao (director of Central Council for Research in Yoga and Naturopathy), and other dignitaries were a part of the occasion. Students from numerous institutes, entrepreneurs, and various scientific scholars attended this expo, thus concluding the first edition of Ayuryog on a high note.
Cleaning the air with cars!
It is no surprise that Delhi and many other cities are struggling to breathe, with a thick layer of smog looming over us causing breathlessness, itchy eyes, and whatnot. In addition to dust, soot, and other gases, it is mainly the fine particulate matter or PM 2.5 emitted by transport fuels like diesel, petrol, and natural gas that contribute to 39 per cent of the pollution. Recognising the need to work on eliminating PM 2.5, an IIT Kharagpur graduate, Debayan Saha, has developed a device called ‘Minus2point5’ which can kill both PM 2.5 and PM 10 pollutants. It can not only eliminate the polluting components of the car it is fitted in, but also of the cars nearby.
With the aim to find a more effective solution for air pollution, Debayan brainstormed and developed this device under the guidance of AIIMS Director Padma Shri Randeep Guleria. Its technology combines electrical energy with wave energy to influence the pollutants. Particles like PM 2.5, which are invisible to the eye, are altered to act like magnets, thus attracting other particulate components to get attached to it. This leads to the increase in size of the matter, making it heavy and causing it to fall to the ground like soil, preventing the particles from entering our bloodstreams and causing fatal diseases. The lab test results of this device show that if installed in one car, it can neutralise the polluting effect of 10 similar cars!
“If installed in all the public vehicles in the city, the hazy air that persists over Delhi year-round will be clear forever. It can transform the polluted cities all over the world into clean breathing places,” says Debayan. The device is developed for four-wheelers and is fitted on the exhaust tailpipes of the vehicle.
Debayan Saha, with Dr Shashi Ranjan and Yogesh Agarwal co-founded PerSapiens, a start-up offering technological and non-technological healthcare solutions which are user-friendly and accessible, in 2017.
The hazardous air condition of cities has led to pollution masks and air purifiers selling like hot cakes, in a dire attempt to keep the toxins from reaching our lungs. It is only fair that the vehicles that add to the deteriorating air conditions, now play an important role and reach every corner of the cities cleaning our air.
Life is a resonance of our inner state each moment; what we feel is how we interact with life. Like a mirror, life reflects our inner projections back at us and, therefore, what we want from life can actually be achieved by creating the state within ourselves. Being in resonance with our desires is necessary if we want the communication to begin. Partha Gupta, a renowned healer and breath master, believes that to connect to anything, we need to have it in our perception first. Right insights lead to this ability to perceive that which we wish to connect and communicate with.
His sessions on Resonance is a space for the attendees to become self-aware. The purpose is to dissolve resistance and proceed towards acceptance without interference from our natural tendencies and habits. The session begins by building a few fundamentals about yoga, meditation, ego, self, consciousness, breath, prana, vibration, projection, reflection, relationships, and more. He says, “Life is functioning in and through our breath,” and breathing free allows us to resonate with that which we want to materialise. “It is like identifying with that dream which is pulsating within to manifest,” adds Partha.
We are generally unaware of our own breath and rarely do we develop a sense of intimacy with it. But the importance of breath has been stressed upon since ancient times and is considered one of the finest yogic learning tools to experience time. According to Partha, what we seek already exists in the consciousness in a certain frequency and breathing in the same frequency can manifest that. His four-hour session on Resonance enables one to find resonance with any space at will. Ambiguity is replaced with clarity in life as it becomes effortless to communicate with life through each moment and breathe.
Partha has helped many entrepreneurs, professionals, sportsmen, entertainers, and creative persons with the insights of the sessions. It is the years of social moulding that has stopped us from exploring the power that lies in our breath. Resonance workshop by Partha Gupta will be held on January 11, 2020 at Life Positive’s New Delhi office. Address: F1/9, Okhla Industrial Area, Phase 1, New Delhi 110020.
