The World No Tobacco Day is observed on May 31 every year, and this year, the World Health Organization (WHO) is calling for governments across the world to enact policies for plain packaging of tobacco products.
World No Tobacco Day – Prernamurti Bharti Shriji
WHO’s slogan for this year’s World No Tobacco Day is “Get ready for plain packaging” and in a statement released Tuesday, it said: “Plain packaging is an important demand reduction measure that reduces the attractiveness of tobacco products, restricts use of tobacco packaging as a form of tobacco advertising and promotion, limits misleading packaging and labelling, and increases the effectiveness of health warnings. Plain packaging of tobacco products refers to measures that restrict or prohibit the use of logos, colours, brand images or promotional information on packaging other than brand names and product names displayed in a standard colour and font style.”
According to WHO, about 6 million people die every year from tobacco-related illnesses. About 5 million die from direct tobacco use, and more than 600,000 deaths are caused by second-hand smoke.
Prernamurti Bharti Shriji has given us the master key for the relaxation and mental peace in today’s speedy trend of life, where humans have succeeded in gaining the needs of materialistic life , but the real happiness and core joy still remains untouched. Spiritual relaxation and progress serves the base of all happiness, joy, success, progress of human life. A Spiritually advanced person serves the world as a mentor towards real happiness and Elixir of life, which is the ultimate Goal of human Life. So here are some of the basic principles which you can follow
Never wrestle with the mind. Don’t use any violent efforts in concentration. Relax all the muscles and the nerves. Relax the brain. Gently think of your Isht dev or Gurudev. Slowly repeat your Guru Mantra with Bhav and meaning. Still the bubbling mind. Silence the thoughts.
If the mind is divested of all the Sankalpa’s of ‘I’, then through meditation of Atman after being initiated by a Guru, and having known the real significance of the Vedas, the mind can be turned back from various pains and made to rest on the subjective blissful Atman.
Don’t shake the body. Keep it as firm as a rock. Breathe slowly. Don’t scratch the body every now and then. Have the right mental attitude as taught by your Guru.
Be under the direct guidance and in close contact with your Guru. You will have steady and continuous progress.
A wavering mind jumps from one Sadhana to another Sadhana, from one Guru to another Guru, from Bhakti Yoga to Vedanta, from one place to another. This is extremely deleterious for Sadhana. Stick to one Guru and one place.
You will have to find out yourself the kind of meditation that is suitable for you. If you are not able to do this, you will have to consult a teacher or preceptor who has attained Self-realisation. He will be able to know the nature of your mind and the correct method of meditation for you.
Company of spiritual teacher and good environments play a tremendous part in the elevation of the mind.
