Coimbatore students told to adopt yoga as a way of life

Covai Post Network

Yoga is the cure for a society plummeting in values, said a leading yoga guru, even as a mass resurrection of the ancient art is being initiated across the world.

Yoga has many forms with a single goal – uniting the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness.

Mystic yoga is one such form, one of the key proponents being Shri Manikanda Swamigal, founder of The Coimbatore Varahi Mystic Yoga Centre.

He said practicing it helps achieve a focus of the mind and body.

“It helps build tremendous confidence and spurs inspiration.”

Speaking to Covai Post on the sidelines of Varahi Mystic Yoga competition held today at Perks Matriculation Higher School in Coimbatore.

The Coimbatore Varahi Mystic Yoga Centre, part of Mahasanketa Trust organized the 10th Inter State Yoga competition.

More than 1,700 participants from more than 150 schools across the state took part in one of the largest contests for yoga.

Organisers said participation has increased this year and saw a lot of spot registrations.

Giving away prizes to the winners, swamigal said: “It was my vision to see children practicing yoga in its traditional form a young age. It’s a holistic activity for this generation with a restless mind and body.”
He said parents must train in yoga as much as children.

The prize distribution ceremony was attended by Swamini Sri Sakthi Latha Mathaji, Yoga Maharishi SevapurManickam and V Balan, joint transport commissioner.

Seventy-three-year-old Yoga Shiromani Sevapur Manickamaih is an acclaimed yoga practitioner and part of the Trust. His 44 years of mentoring has generated more than 1,000 yoga teachers.

“Practising mystic yoga combines nama, roopa, mantra and yoga. It’s characterized by love and devotion for God, where the guru leads by example,” the recipient of the Quality of Council from the Ministry of Ayush, told the Covai Post.

No other form of exercise can work out all the 72,000 nerves in the body as yoga, Shri Manikanda Swamigal said.

The future of the country is in the hands of the youth, and such a big responsibility cannot be discharged without imbibing exceptional qualities and capabilities, he said.

“A proper training in yoga can build humanness and discipline and sharpen intellect, and what better asset can a nation have than children with strong character.”

Yoga helps reduce various food needs, he said. “The body organs can channelize their supreme energy in more useful ways other than being just involved in a continuous process of digesting food.”

Shri Manikanda Swamigal, who has been teaching time management based on the ‘panchpakshi’ principle, said it is based on five birds that have a prolific sense of time.

Once the eagle targets its prey, it swoops down to catch its prey, if a crow is offered food at a particular time, it comes every day at that time, the rooster never fails crow at dawn, the peacock forecasts the rain and the owl has nocturnal powers.

Yoga has been getting its due of late with new initiatives putting India’s ancient discipline on the world map, though it has been invisible yet happening across the world, he said.

Shri Manikanda Swamigal is founder of the Sri Varahi Mantralayam, where an old age home and an orphanage are run, in addition to a cow shelter, where older animals are kept.

“I have bigger plans for the mantralaya, and have made some groundwork. The work will be continued by the future generation of disciples,” he said.
