Message from Shanti Gowans,
CEO Health Institute Australasia

Welcome aboard…

As we look around the world today, we could find ourselves thinking a great deal about a lost art, the art of living. Many things blossom karmically for us in our lives. What you can do as an antidote to your obstacles, is to engage in yoga practice yourself.

There is so much activity in the world, some of it very distasteful. People are suffering from devastating diseases and loneliness and are falling by the wayside as a result of war, drugs and pestilence. Peace and harmony are so wanted, so needed. If we want to rise out of this apparent chaos, we must change our own circumstances and move to another level of being. Don’t despair, as with all mistakes, all is not lost if we don’t lose the lesson.

Yoga, Ayurveda, meditation, my work and my books have been amongst my best friends as I have moved along the path of life. They have lifted me up and supported me and each step has provided me with knowledge and wisdom. All that I have learnt, I would like to share with you now. I trust you will know how valuable this is to you, because ignorance is expensive.

These teachings, together with my publications, have sprung in great part from rich and sacred associations with people and situations all over the world: saints, sages, yogis, rishis, the old, the young, the person with a hungry mind who has sought a new and better way to regain or maintain their health, and from life itself.

Having been in the field of Yoga and Ayurveda for decades now, it has been more than a job. It’s been a calling… my sacred journey… and pure joy. I believe in Yoga, and this belief continues to grow with every new student and practitioner I meet.

I share my life and my endeavours

It is to this end, and in honour of all those who have served me along the way, that I share my life and my endeavours with you now. A warm welcome to you on this occasion of your first level of training in Ayurveda. It is my hope that through this work, we will be good friends for life.

Ayurveda is unique, different from any other path or system I know. It is widely accepted by the medical profession and the general public alike. Many other disciplines have paid yoga and ayurveda the ultimate compliment.

Getting healthier is a side-effect of eating right, moving right, breathing right, thinking right. You will learn how to do this…and get leaner, stronger, healthier…and you will share (teach) this to others. Be strong. You will meet people with bodies to fix, minds to quieten and broken spirits that need mending. You will spend many precious hours teaching them how to solve their problems, not just treat their symptoms.

The intermediate objective is to dissolve mental impurities and expand the mind before Self-realisation. Currently, who you think you are, is a thought. However, in the bigger picture, you are a totally determined being. It’s just your vantage point that you’re stuck in.

Only when I know who I am will I know what is possible.

Yoga and Ayurveda is a lifetime experience and you’ll discover an experience of a lifetime. For progress on the Yogic path, regular spiritual practice is essential. Students require time for sadhana in order to maintain equilibrium and inspiration.

Be a leader

Martin Luther King said “I have a dream.” Leaders are people who are in pursuit of a dream. They’re risk takers, without a problem of self-consciousness. They excite others about their vision, make it their mission and encourage them to come along. As a true leader, you must come to accept that what others think about you is not really in the scheme of things, if you take on the world and make life the way it ought to be. Follow your dreams.

Your spiritual health lies in your ability to live in harmony with the external universe. Your mental health is dependent upon your ability to live in harmony with yourself. Your mental condition has both a physical and social impact. You are the guardian and custodian of this planet. Your own survival depends upon not disturbing the fragile balance between nature and living organisms. You must prevent wanton destruction and return to the equilibrium of nature. If you cut down a tree for your own use, plant another. Ensure the purity of water by not polluting the waterways and ocean, directly or indirectly. Ensure that the air is not poisoned.

To enjoy spiritual rewards and to be fit and healthy, you need to eat properly. Your body and mind need the best food to give you your nutrients. The food you consume becomes your appearance, your mode of expression and has a vital influence on your state of happiness.

I know that we’re friends now. I feel that you are a member of my Yoga family. I’m both a friend and mentor to you. I trust that you’ll keep in touch. You will be the standard bearers of Yoga. I have given you the best material that I am able to give, a good clear, basic knowledge for those of you who will teach after me, so that you can carry on this work in a skilful manner. My personal vision is Living Peace. My mission has been to take Shanti Yoga from heart to heart, door to door, shore to shore. It is up to you to use Shanti Yoga in a way that will serve to uplift human beings physically, mentally and spiritually. I invite you to share this vision and make Shanti Yoga the world’s largest wellness provider. Let your vision include everyone to create raving Shanti Yoga fans, from the original telephone enquiry to  the end use customer.

Good luck with your studies.

Namaste

Shantiji
