In response to today’s prompt, here is my answer.
The following are the things I do on a daily basis to better my quality of life:
Getting up at Brahma muhurta (between 3:30 to 3:40 AM):
I love getting up early because it gives me time to enjoy the peace and quiet before the rest of the world wakes up. A peaceful mood is set for the day.
Chanting of Gayatri Mantra (between 4:00 to 4:15 AM):
When I chant the Gayatri Mantra in a steady pace, it helps me concentrate and relax. It’s a spiritual practise that gets my day off to a good start.
Transcendental meditation of 30-50 minutes followed by Pranayama & Surya Namaskar [Sun Salutation]:
The time I spend cultivating my mind through meditation and pranayama is invaluable to me. My mental and emotional health have greatly benefited from the practice’s effects on stress and anxiety.
Surya Namaskar, the graceful sequence of yoga postures, pays homage to the sun’s vital energy. With each fluid movement, it awakens the body, mind, and spirit, embracing a holistic renewal. This rhythmic practice is a symphony of gratitude and vitality, uniting breath and motion in harmonious synergy.
Morning walk (6:30 to 7:30 AM):
Taking a brisk walk first thing in the morning helps me feel more energised and focused for the rest of the day. Getting outside and breathing in some fresh air helps me feel refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Studying Vedanta Darshan in the afternoon:
Vedanta Darshan, which I study in the afternoons, feeds my inquisitive mind. Taking part in this activity has helped me develop both intellectually and spiritually.
Advaita Vedanta, the timeless wisdom of non-duality, has been my guiding star on this transformative journey. Through its teachings, I’ve embraced the understanding of Absolute reality—the core of existence that transcends duality. This profound insight has unravelled the roots of fear, replacing them with a profound sense of unity and wholeness.
Six Years of Holistic Transformation: Cultivating Confidence, Wisdom, and Well-Being Through Daily Practices.
I have been incorporating these methods into my daily life for the past six years, and my quest towards holistic health and happiness has produced incredible outcomes. This unwavering dedication has helped me develop an inner calm and steadiness that permeates every facet of my existence. This experience has strengthened not only my body and mind, but also my emotional fortitude and my grasp of the spiritual world.
The Gayatri Mantra’s soothing rhythm has helped me cultivate the incredible assurance I currently carry.
The sound waves have helped me find balance within, which has given me the confidence to take on new challenges and seize new chances. This motto has served as a beacon, illuminating the way to more confidence and calm within.
My outlook has shifted drastically for the better since I began practising transcendental meditation and pranayama.
The realization of non-duality has been my greatest tool in dispelling fear’s grip. It’s like a gentle yet powerful breeze that clears away the clouds of uncertainty, revealing the vast sky of consciousness. This understanding has shown me that fear thrives on division, but when I perceive the interconnectedness of all things, fear loses its grip on me.
Advaita Vedanta has equipped me with the necessary knowledge to recognize fear as an illusion born from the illusion of separation. With this realization, fear loses its potency, and I’m free to navigate life with a light heart and a clear mind. In the embrace of non-duality, fear’s power diminishes, and I step into each day with the courage to embrace whatever comes my way.
