Life in the modern age has become particularly trying and problematic. Though it remains a fact that the standard of living has generally improved, man is still suffering immensely under the weight of present-day living. The physical condition of man has been reduced to such a pathetic level that he succumbs to untimely physical ailments to an unprecedented degree. Mentally, one is so stress/tension-ridden that he has forgotten the art of relaxing, and one cannot even enjoy sound sleep without the aid of tranquilizers. In this set up interpersonal relations have become very brittle and vulnerable. Thus, it is letting loose a whole series of other social problems. Life has become a problematic burden and a solution to make life more tolerable and enjoyable is a great pressing need.
As someone very rightly said “If you are not part of the solution you are still part of the problem”. What is the solution then? Is there any?
Today, Scientific researches have established that the spiritual practices that our ancients practiced are very very helpful in dealing with these stressful conditions.
