Start Where You Are @ Harmony Hall, Dehiwala

Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga Centres, Sri Lanka organized for a presentation and panel discussion with meditation experience on 11th November 2018 from 5.00 p.m to 7.30 p.m. The theme of this women’s program is “Start Where You Are” – Journey of women’s emotions towards empowerment.

The program commenced with a meditation commentary and cultural dances.

Mrs. Udayakumary Maheswaran (The Director, Department of Census and Statistics, Sri Lanka) delivered a presentation on intelligent quotient, and on emotional quotient.

Thereafter Mr. BK Ganesh, the National Coordinator of Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga Centre- Sri Lanka commented on the subject of empowerment where he also added another factor which is more important that which is called spiritual quotient.

After that the panel discussion started, and there were two panelist namely Mrs. Selvi Satchithandan (Principal Kalalaya School of Dance and Music, Rtd UN (SL) Nutritious Advisor) and Dr. Mrs. Kaladevi Sivayoganathan (Consultant Eye Surgeon attached to Base Hospital, Dikoya). BK Gopi a senior meditation teacher who has practiced this meditation for the last 25 years was the moderator at the panel discussion.

In a nut shell what Mrs. Selvi Satchithandan said was that world is full of negativity and it penetrates through our physical organs. Due to the past memories people’s mind gets wounded. To see things clearly and act positively that is we have to respond to the situation and not react. Therefore daily we have to take some time to go within and ensure we act positively instead of emotionally. Finally she also concluded that spiritual quotient is the most important thing in order to be successful in our day to day life.

The next panelist Dr.Kaladevi also agreed with what Mrs.Selvi has said and added that we have to daily get our soul charged in the early hour of nectar by connecting ourselves to the Supreme energy, the Supreme Soul. During this time, the soul gets empowered and all the systems of our body start to function properly. For an example, the pituitary gland in the brain which is close to the soul gets activated and it is able to control the other endocrine glands in the body to the maximum. As a result of this, these endocrine glands secrete their hormones, the chemicals in the proper way; so that we are free from many diseases.

Thereafter there was a meditation session guided with commentary.
