In his lecture, he presented the idea that oratory is skill that can be nurtured by practice and learning. With better communication skills we are able to touch emotional cord of people. Then he discussed some dynamics of public speaking like one should be always prepared before going to stage, take pauses, use short sentences, avoid using clichés, slangs and proverbs, use right and perfect quotes, use wit and  humour to avoid monotony, use verified facts, let the audience feel involved and  avoid eye-trap while delivering speech on stage. One should also be particular about body language and gestures. After this, he gave examples of famous people like Winston Churchill, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Barak   Obama who in real sense are great orators.

A SEMINAR CUM WORKSHOP  “REDUCIGN STRESS THROUGH MEDITATION” ON YOGA BY SAHAJA YOGA MEDITATION

On 12 February, 2018 DAVIET Human Values Cell, organised a one day workshop cum seminar for the students and faculty of DAVIET on the topic “Reducign Stress Through Meditation” in which an expert from Sahaja Yoga Meditation Centre guided faculty and students that how to reduce stress with the help of meditation.

He explained that Sahaja Yoga is a unique method of meditation based on an experience called Self Realization (Kundalini awakening) that can occur within each human being. Through this process an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced.

He explained  that one can receive his Self Realization (connection with your Self) while sitting in front of computer. The only condition is sincere desire to have it. He explained the audience that during the experience you will keep your left hand with the palm upwards on your lap and place the right palm on various parts of the body on your left side, while keeping your eyes closed for the entire duration. This way you will be free of distractions and able to keep your attention inside. Taking off your shoes might also help since the Mother Earth sucks all negativity through our feet.

Now, after the end of the meditation, see if you are feeling relaxed and if your thoughts have slowed down or gradually disappeared. This is the first stage of meditation – thoughtless awareness – where you are fully alert but without any thoughts, in a state of pure and peaceful consciousness.

Now see if you can feel a sensation of a gentle cool breeze in your palms and above your head. It might be warm in the beginning which is a sign that your Kundalini energy is purifying your chakras, but it will eventually cool down. You can verify it by placing your left palm 6-12 inches above your head, then trying with the right palm.

If you are unable to feel it, you have probably not forgiven everyone. Say again from your heart, “Mother, I forgive everyone” a few times and check again if you feel the cool breeze above your head.

This is the beginning of a fantastic journey into your own spiritual existence. It is a door opened to a new dimension of your awareness, which you can open and explore. I f sustained through regular meditation, you will be able to feel your subtle centers (chakras) as well as the chakras of others on your fingertips, and correct them using your spiritual energy (Kundalini).

The faculty and students enjoyed the session and performed exercises explained by the expert. The seminar ended with a vote of thanks to the Sahaja Yoga team.
