To get an idea of how ancient literature can be understood and used to maintain good health, become an entrepreneur, and also build more healthy communities

Mr. Narendra was introduced by one of our students and later on, Dr. Sheetal Mahender honored the guest with a bouquet.

Mr. Narendra, then, addressed the gathering. He is an instrumentation engineer, and he specializes in Control systems. He had worked in the United States of America before he shifted his basis to India. He had worked with embedded systems of aircraft, mobile phones, and other systems. He had a dream of working in aviation for a long time, and after pursuing this dream, he had felt void all the while, as something had not felt right. He had resorted to Vedic Literature to seek some solace from the feeling of missingness. He had referred to two books, one 120-year-old and the other 900-year-old. The retention of the Sanskrit palm-leaf text was longer than that

of the printed one, and this prompted Mr. Narendra to ponder the wonders of our ancient technology. He stressed that we, as a generation, had abandoned our old methods of living completely and turned to the British way of education and what the Britishers had imparted on us.

He had asked why animals had lesser hospitals and diseases than human beings, and why diseases like cancer, diabetes, and blood pressure prevailed amongst human beings and not animals. He elucidated that this is because we tax our digestive system all the time. As the body is designed to only ingest natural food and not processed foods. Hence, it is not judicious to expect the body to be healthy and happy. He cited the example of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson who had lived only up to 50 years despite his efforts of having 150 doctors on board.
He emphasized the necessity of having good air, water, sleep, and food. Food is the root of
our living. He voiced that one shouldn’t listen to their tongue, and we must keep our five senses in our control. He also narrated a story of one of his patients who had gone to take no medications after a cardiac block, after taking natural food. He stated that oily food is the root cause of the heart diseases that are cropping up of late, as the oil used is adulterated. He spoke about the five koshas: Annamayakosha, Pranamayaakosha, Manomayakosha, Vijnanamayakosha, and Anandamayakosha. He persuaded the students to read the Upanishads at their own time, and apply the insights they provide. He questioned the framework of the society, as there was no reference to our living. He spoke about the importance of pranayama and advised to practice it at least 30 minutes a day and talked about its benefits of it. He suggested that by doing so we would cleanse our body and in turn, we would become healthy.
He asked the audience to follow three steps to lead a healthy life: Pranayama, drink water and eat watery vegetables, and do exercise. From the audience, Urmila asked how to bring the discipline to follow the above steps. Mr. Narendra answered that we must change little every day. In our body, hysteria stays in momentum and we must overcome it by bringing simple changes.
He also showed videos of the transformation that nature inclined lifestyle could bring in our lives. He asked the students whether they will apply these methods in their day-to-day life. The students assured him that they will adhere to the same.

Dr. Sheetal Mahender addressed the gathering and spoke about Mr. Narendra’s goal to build healthy communities and share his knowledge with youngsters. Shruti Bora then concluded the session with a vote of thanks where she expressed her gratitude to Mr. Narendra for enlightening the students about Engineering Perspectives of Body, Nature, and Healing.
