What does Jeevan Darshan tells about life ?
Jeevan Darshan says that our lives are sole journeys and we are sent on these divine paths to give our best efforts in achieving the tasks we are assigned for. Divinity has chosen us to lead the change in this world. We all are playing our roles in this eternal theater. Any state of affairs we are going through, whether happy or sad, they all are because of good or bad actions we had done in our previous lives. When we enter into new life, the manners and actions of our prior lives come along in the form of layers over layers due to which we forget the original nature of our souls which is Happy and Peaceful.
What leads to a happy and healthy life ?
Happiness and Health are compliment to each other. Happiness and peace together lead to a healthy life. The first step towards happiness is your focus that should stuck on yourself. When we prioritize the
opinions of others over our happiness the outcomes always lead to a distressed mind. One should keep thinking about themselves only. ‘Who we are and what we are here for’ should be your primary objective. One should ‘Accept’ whatever they have but should never ‘Expect’. The happiest times we spend are the one we spend with ourselves.

Five elements (Panch Mahabhuta) and body
Our body is made up of five elements Water, Earth, Fire, Air and Ether (Space). These elements are the building blocks of our body. Each of the five elements represents a state of matter in nature. Solid matter is classified as the “Earth” element. Water is everything that is liquid. Air is everything that is a gas. Fire is that part of Nature that transforms one state of matter into another. Ether is the mother of the other elements and is the basis of higher spiritual experiences. All of the creation is made up of the five elements in different proportions. The Human body is also the product of these 5 elements in different proportions. 72% water, 12% earth, 6% air, 4% fire and the rest is Ether. The “Prana” (vital force) in the human body is also directly connected to these 5 elements. The Law of Nature demands these elements to be in balance.

In the morning when you are about to wake up, take a deep breath before opening your eyes and let your inner self feel the Air element that we inhale in the form of oxygen and exhale in the form of carbon dioxide. Slowly open your eyes and look at our palms. Sit straight folding your hands and thank the divinity to grant you one more fresh and positive morning. Softly step on the floor and feel the divine earth with your feet. Greet with heart and feel the earth element. Take some water on your palm and wisely rinse your face.
