Jivananda lifestyle regimen includes simple routines and practices to usher in perpetual happiness into our lives. It helps people in the busy life of today to lead a natural life and conduct themselves effortlessly through the maze of life’s variables and constants.
An original conception by Dr. Partap Chauhan, Jivananda is a simple yet effective lifestyle regimen for people who are completely occupied with their daily chores. In Sanskrit, Jiva means ‘soul’ and Ananda means ‘bliss’. Therefore, Jivananda signifies the ‘bliss of the soul’.
Ayurveda has answers to problems in all the three components of life—sensual (body), emotional (mind) and spiritual (soul). Jivananda combines these responses of Ayurveda towards life into one harmonical regimen that can be followed by one and all. It is for guiding people along a chosen path of self-empowerment of body, mind and soul. Through Jivananda, men and women are guided on how to prepare their bodies and minds for the day in the most optimum manner. Breathing exercises (Pranayama), suggested in the Jivananda regimen, help revitalize people by facilitating the energy of the air (Prana) in their bodies. Some simple yet comprehensive yoga postures (Hatha yoga) help their bodies become supple, strong and healthy. Guidelines included in Jivananda also help people choose the dietary lifestyle appropriate to their body-types as individuals.
Jivananda can be practised almost anywhere, anytime, and under many diverse conditions and circumstances, like cleaning teeth, driving car, travelling in a bus, train or even in an aeroplane. The principles of Jivananda can be followed by men and women, children and adults alike. There are no hard and fast rules on the timings of performing Jivananda—mornings, afternoons, evenings or nights are all possible timings for the practice of Jivananda.
This program uses a balanced and holistic approach that is easy, comfortable and entirely convenient. It teaches people in the busy life of today to lead a natural life. While living a natural life one can experience all the benefits of flowing with the powerfully creative energy force, rather than resisting it, which many do, unconsciously. When one lives a life in accord with natural laws, so much more can be achieved by doing less. This is the supreme style of living.
One of the most important aspects of the Jivananda regimen is the Jivananda Meditation which soothes and energises the body, mind, senses and the soul for the whole day. It is also a superb tool to fight stress and increase memory and concentration. Co-propounded by Dr. Partap Chauhan and Dr. Satya Narayana Dasa, the Jivananda Meditation involves bringing your awareness into the heart area and visualising a tiny Drop of Love in the heart that spreads in all directions. The meditation entails tracing the outward and then the inward journey of the Drop of Love from the heart out into the surrounding and back.
