Concept of Youth and ageing
/ Caring for our body
Man has unconsciously tried
to be forever young. Man has adopted various
methods to achieve this goal, which has been
futile and vain to a larger extent. They forget
that use of revitalizing lotions or toners to
erase the wrinkles is not sufficient. Pharmacological
and other toxic substances (viz Botox- Botulin
for wrinkles) would not help, to attain youthfulness,
vigor and vitality. Yoga and meditation is suggested
here, which is devoid of side effects and has
lasting effect. (Infant, 2001; Travis, 1999;Travis,2001).
It enhances flexibility,
regulates blood circulation, toning muscles,
and redistributing body mass and enhances alertness
and clarity of faculties of mind.
Yoga is a divine science,
taking the mankind on the path of positive thinking.
Its basis is banked on the homeostasis of all
the systems as proposed by George Engel. The
learned saints of ancient India discovered this
process. Yoga is complete in every aspect as
it touches the every sphere of human life. It
is a complete science that provides a healthy
lifestyle and a complete preventive medication
system. Above all, it is an enlightening spiritual
art. Saint Patanjali brought Yoga 5000 years
ago, in a disciplined manner to preserve and
produce the eight yogic practices in the form
of Yoga Sutra.
Moreover, the popularity
of Yoga lies in the fact that it has never bounded
itself within the narrow-minded attitude of
sex, community, area, religion, caste, and language.
