I served the Bank for thirty-five years. It provided me bread and butter and gave me a respectable place in the society. As I was nearing my retirement, a thought of giving back came to my mind. I wanted to make others happy.

Laughter yoga generates a lot of feel good hormones, positive vibes, and cheer. It is a unique concept where any one can laugh for no reason, without the use of jokes, comedy, or humour. I learned the art and science of laughter yoga along with my wife and we soon practised it in small and large groups. We conducted laughter sessions for Nestle, Abercrombie & Kent, Airports Authority of India, schools and colleges, international students, and, of course, our own Bank. It gave us great satisfaction and fulfilment.

Positive psychology is the modern science of happiness. I was always fascinated by it and studied it in great depth after retirement. It taught me to engage deeply in work, play and parenting and to devote my life to a meaningful purpose. We thought of giving even more to the people around us for which we travelled to the Himalayas to learn yoga and meditation.

The Buddha always inspired me, and I wanted to go deeper and deeper into his teachings. It was like a vast ocean and a small drop from the Dhammapada was sufficient to quench my spiritual thirst:

“Abstain from all unwholesome deeds,

Perform wholesome ones,

Purify your mind.

This is the teaching of the Enlightened Ones.”

We conduct sessions on happiness and well-being in the neighbourhood and wherever we are invited. These sessions include inputs from positive psychology, laughter yoga, yoga, meditation, and spirituality. We feel happy and content serving our fellow beings. At the same time, these exercises keep us fit too. Our gratitude to the Bank that provides us safety and security even at this age.

Happiness Sutras are proven practices for health, happiness and peace. One such practice is Surya Namaskar - a complete 'sadhana' in itself, containing asana, pranayama and meditational techniques within the main structure of the practice. Watch, how it is done.

Surya namaskara is a well-known and vital technique within the yogic repertoire. It is a practice which has been handed down from the sages of vedic times. Surya means ‘sun’ and namaskara means ‘salutation’.

It is a technique of solar vitalization, a series of exercises which recharge us like a battery, enabling us to live more fully and joyfully with dynamism and skill in action.

Surya namaskara is a series of twelve physical postures. These alternate backward and forward bending asanas flex and stretch the spinal column and limbs through their maximum range. The series gives such a profound stretch to the whole body that few other forms of exercise can be compared with it.

It is almost a complete sadhana in itself, containing asana, pranayama and meditational techniques within the main structure of the practice. It also has the depth and completeness of a spiritual practice.

Surya namaskara can be easily integrated into our daily lives as it requires only five to fifteen minutes’ practice daily to obtain beneficial results remarkably quickly.
