  The fourth dimension of Health

कस्त्वं कोऽहं कुत आयातः
का मे जननी को मे तातः ।
इति परिभावय सर्वमसारम्
विश्वं त्यक्त्वा स्वप्न विचारम् ॥ २३॥
Who are you ? Who am I ? Where do we come from ? Who is my mother, who is my father ?
Ponder thus and you will realise that the entire world of experience is but a dream, born out of imagination and delusion.

Dear friend,
The World Health Organisation defines health as ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not a merely the absence of disease or infirmity’.
A fourth dimension of health called the spiritual health is being thought of. Spiritual health is slowly gaining importance in the scientific community. It is not without reason why yoga has been recognised all over the world as one of the most important health promoter. This is because yoga confers a perfect health through all the four avenues.
Whether you believe in the existence of god or you are an atheist, at some point of time in your life, I am sure, a thought have passed in your mind: Who are we? Why are we here? What is the purpose of the existence of all the living creatures on Earth? Just thinking about these aspects of life, is a sign of good health.
Of the trillions of stars in this universe, with possibly millions of stars with a planetary system like our Sun, life is found only on our Earth! Why only Earth?
There are so many creatures, so many plants, animals and so many humans! What is the intention of this big game plan? At the same time, there appears to be a grand design in all this creation. Everything seems to work perfectly and follow a set pattern of events and life cycles, at least up to the atomic level.
The very same force that governs an atom, governs the whole universe. The same physical laws apply to all of them. This natural driving force pervades the whole universe.
Just surrender to this driving force. You will see the magic. You will be one with Nature; you’ll love it; you’ll feel responsible for everything that it is made of!
Let us join hands to make our only Earth, a place where all elements of life can live in health, happiness and harmony.
Thank you.

Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus) This is the ancestor of all the domestic breeds of poultry. It is found in northern India, particularly on the Himalayan foothill states, eastern Madhya Pradesh and in the northern districts of Karnataka. A very shy bird, more heard than seen, living in the bamboo and scrub jungles, coming out in a party of a cock and 3-4 hens in the early morning to feed on grains, vegetable shoots, insects and lizards. Its call is like that of domestic cock. The birds spend the night on trees and bamboo clumps. The nest is made of a shallow scrape in dense bushes, lined with dry leaves.
