March 2017 By Shivi Verma Being held on March 24th-26th at Zorba the Buddha, an exclusive eco-village in the suburbs of New Delhi, the annual Life Positive Fest will once again reconnect you to your purpose, health and happiness, says Shivi Verma Nature is the best conduit of Divinity. With its gentle and soothing whispers, it lulls you into serenity and bliss, helping to connect you with your innermost being. Keeping this in mind, Life Positive has decided to host its annual festival for seekers at Zorba the Buddha, a mystical eco-village on the outskirts of New Delhi at Mehrauli-Gurgaon road, this month of March. Take a stroll along tranquil ponds and exotic gardens, enjoy the birds and scenery and chill inside earthy cottages and workshop spaces. The place is already high on spiritual energy because of its theme, and the gathering of artists and seekers from all walks of life. Top it all with healthy, aromatic, organic food cooked to perfection and you have a dream experience. Attending divine discourses and uplifting workshops in such a heavenly ambience is guaranteed to touch you with a deep sense of gratitude, freedom and faith Inaugural address by Sw. Ishwarananda Giri Swami Ishwarananda Giri is a member of the Board of Directors, Yogoda Satsanga Society of India, and is also the Administrator of Yogoda Satsanga Sakha Ashram Noida, UP. He did his MBBS from Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, and M.D. in chest specialisation from the Patel Chest Institute, Delhi. From his youth he had been driven by a quest to know. He read the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda in his youth and was deeply impressed. On reading about the God-realised saints in the book he felt the desire to reach that state himself. He subscribed to the postal course of kriya yoga meditation and began doing meditation daily twice a day. As he practised he began seeing great changes within himself. One of the landmark moments in his spiritual journey was the day he realised the meaning of God’s omnipresence. “It struck me that if God was everywhere, then He was right here with me in the room itself. There was no place to go to find him,” he says. In 1988 he joined the YSS ashram as a monk and served in the ashram in different capacities. He was involved in many charitable activities, such as eye camps, free TB clinic, and treatment of leprosy patients in his first 10 years of ashram life. Later, he was sent to the Self-Realization Fellowship, the International headquarters of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India in Los Angeles, where he spent about five years. In spreading the life-affirmative teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, he has travelled all over India and abroad, and spoken in several American cities such as Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, New York, and Atlanta. He will be delivering the inaugural address at the festival on the subject: Balancing between the head and heart. Valedictory address by Dr Sriram Gajula If humility is the measure of greatness, then Dr Sriram Gajula aces this test. He is the epitome of simplicity, grace, love, and gentleness. His speeches are the outpourings of his heart, the most deep and authentic realisations which are a result of his consistent spiritual inquiries and profound love for Nature. Listening to him is akin to taking a dip in the pool of your soul. You return feeling as though you have just met yourself more deeply. An MA, M.Phil and PhD in English from Osmania University, Hyderabad, he currently resides in Hyderabad. Dr. Sriram has written more than a dozen books: Dew Drops on a Lotus Leaf, Voyage into Consciousness, Journey into Joy, Divinity in Nature, Pearls of Wisdom, and Smiling Tears. Some of his books have been translated into Hindi and Telugu. His informal spiritual talks have been published as a book, Jeevan Saurabh in Hindi and Jeevan Saurabham in Telugu. There are three published biographies on him. Though he lives a life of anonymity except for a few get-togethers and workshops, his impact is global. He has extensively travelled in India and abroad to observe and appreciate nature. Dr. Sriram has conducted two-day workshops on Spiritual Wisdom for Celebration of Life, in Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi, Boston, and Silicon Valley. He has also done a one-day programme, Eye on I at Harvard in September 2016. He has also given talks at the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, on Wisdom and Happiness and at Penn State University, USA on Oasis of Happiness and Ocean of Happiness. He will be delivering the valedictory address at the Life Positive Fest on the topic: Nature as guru. Empowerment with Angels by Roshani Shenazz Nadirshah Angels. The word itself fills us with a sparkling sense of joy and curiosity. A realm we left behind in childhood along with fairy tales, to face the practical world of ground realities is today reclaiming our attention. The mystical world of angels exists, eager to touch our lives with their magic wands if only we would allow them to. And through Roshani Shenazz Nadirshah, an emissary par excellence of the angelic forces, we can learn how to. A connection with angels fills our life with faith, hope and courage, and also acts as our portal to higher dimensions of being and living. Says Roshani, “Angels are non-religious, non-denominational light beings, who were created by God way before creation came into existence and are there for the benefit of the inhabited universe irrespective of our earthly religions and other differences.” In this one-day workshop you will learn about your guiding angels, arch angels, how to invoke them and decode their messages. Keynote speaker, best-selling author of Angelspeak, spiritual mentor and coach and founder of Sparkling Angels Wholeistic Living and Holistic Healing Meher Roshani Foundation, Roshani is in the second innings of her inspirational life. Her dynamic 23 years in media and films, where she worked for some of the biggest names in the industry was interrupted in 2005 by a prolonged illness followed by financial, emotional and many other closures. After a radical transformation in 2009-10, she quit the dream industry, embarking on her life purpose to help people unveil their own divine potential. She learnt Angel healing with Charles Virtue, son of Doreen Virtue in 2010, and has ever since been facilitating many sessions and workshops for guidance, healing and mentoring in India and across the globe. She was invited as a Keynote Speaker at the XIVth CIFA forum in Monaco, France in 2016. The Secrets of Breath by Partha Gupta Our breath is not simply oxygen but also prana, the element of life and divinity in our lives. As long as we can take complete breaths, uncluttered by disturbing thoughts and emotions, we can lead healthy, spirited and energetic lives. Our breath manifests our dreams, desires or even what we fear, depending on its quality. So if we could simply learn to breathe in the best possible way, many of our challenges would get over. Says Partha, “Whatever is coming to you is because of the breath. Whatever is going out of you is because of the breath. Till date whatever you have received is because your breath could connect to it. And if you have wanted something and did not receive it, it is because your breath could not connect to it.” His session focuses on making participants experience the vitality of prana. His breathing techniques have the power to fill you up with unprecedented vitality, heal your chronic diseases, manifest your dreams, and even take you closer to your Divine self. It is a delight to watch participants perform nadi shuddhi – a chakra-cleansing breathing technique – under Partha’s guidance and feel liberated of their blockages. His affable and easygoing demeanour puts everyone at ease. Partha is a Hyderabad-based master breath trainer, who learnt the processes of life from the great Himalayan Masters, and the kriya yoga tradition of Shibendu Lahiri, great grandson of Lahiri Mahashaya. He has empowered many to heal ailments and manifest their intentions by connecting to their breath. “Participating in the Pranic Force workshop by Partha Gupta in Coimbatore gave me a good tool to change my lifestyle. I have learnt to live a happy and better life, thanks to the session,” said PL Garg, a participant from Faridabad. Another participant, D Surekha, too found the workshop to be excellent. “I learnt a lot of breath techniques which removed many energy blockages. I found each and every second of the session to be very special, and had an amazing experience,” she said. Processing trapped emotions by Suzy Singh Deep emotions have a way of impacting our mind and memory. If unpleasant they can take deep roots in our psyche, badly affecting or influencing our present life and relationships. They become sanskaras which can continue to exert themselves even in forthcoming lives, becoming our dysfunctional patterns. If unhealed or unreleased they can also convert into debilitating diseases. Magically, our real, magnificent Self lies just beneath the surface of these pernicious emotions. Once you are able to identify them you can work to help them find release. And as you do so you will move towards your real nature of bliss, peace and joy. In this workshop, Suzy will teach you how to identify, process and release trapped emotions for a happier and healthier life.
