More than 50 seekers took their Self-realisation at Alipurduar, located 160 kilometres from Siliguri in India. Sahaja Yogis from Siliguri, in North Bengal, were invited to conduct a special class on Stress Management for a group of NGO volunteers and workers on 17-20 February 2010. The event was sponsored and conducted by the Central Board for Workers Education.
The Central Board of Workers Education (CBWE) is a Government of India enterprise. This Board basically helps organise several training programs for NGO volunteers and self-help group volunteers. It tries to focus on grooming the workers with adequate knowledge on stress management, confidence building and personality development during their training program.
Thus in the month of February the CBWE invited the Siliguri Sahaja Yoga collective to organise and conduct a special session through hosting a training program on stress management, confidence building and personality development for an NGO group named “SIPATWO” (a self-help group of Salsalabari village at Alipurduar Sub-division in Jalpaiguri district).
The entire session was conducted by a group of Sahaja Yogis from Siliguri collective for four consecutive days from 17th of Feb – 20th of Feb 2010. The yogis shared detailed insights on the effects of the subtle system and the accumulated stress due to our busy schedule in this competitive world, resulting in unrest within our gross self. This was very aptly correlated with stress management through the unique method of Sahaja Yoga meditation by which one can achieve eventual peace after receiving Self-realisation. Realisation was given to more than 50 members who attended the event. All who attended felt the deep silence within and enjoyed the coolness of the Realisation.
Subsequently, follow-up sessions were initiated and basic techniques like bandhan and protocol for regular meditation to sustain the effect of this unique gift to mankind were appraised. The follow-up session provided further knowledge on the subtle system and the qualities of various chakras in our subtle system, corresponding to their various proven plexuses in the gross body. As the seekers responded very well they were taught how to balance themselves and practise effortless meditation. Further follow-up sessions are planned.
