A program conceptualized on Buddhism, Ayurvedha and Nature
Healthy mind and body ensure arogya (good health). Good health not only brings forth longer life, but importantly a healthy longer life. Living longer would be meaningful only if we are healthy enough to enjoy it. Arogya WELLNESS will help reset the mind to its original resilience that we were born with, while strengthening the body’s natural healing prowess that will result in a longer happy life.
A baby’s smile is so pure and genuine. Why? We are born with a clear and healthy mind. In other words, that is a mind not burdened with negativity . Nothingness( no negativity) is a state of mind with inner peace. Peaceful mind is happy and healthy. However, life’s journey soils such a beautiful mind in many ways. For example, various fears, wrong values including lust for wealth and fame and various ideologies burden the mind and suppress the born purity.
Cleansing the mind
At the glenrock, Buddhist dhamma discussions based on Buddhist teachings such as Kalama Sutta, Chathurarya Sathya( Four Fold Truth) and Arya Ashtangika Marga( Eight Fold Path), backed by short and simple meditation sessions will help us cleanse our soiled minds so that we can regain the pureness of the mind we were born with. Arogya WELLNESS applies the practical aspects of Buddhist teachings Gautama Buddha applied assisting laymen solving their problems. Arogya WELLNESS utilizes such practical aspects as mind purification techniques at the glenrock.
Unhealthy mind spews unhappy thoughts. Thoughts are a result of a bio chemical process within the body. Depending on the thought, good or bad chemicals( hormones etc) are released inside the body. Bad chemicals cause body ill. Cleansing the mind will stop further damage to the body. Also, good chemicals released by good thoughts from a pure mind will help maintain the body’s born healing powers powered by healthy body organs.
Cleansing the body
Arogya WELLNESS treats damage already done through chemicals released from bad thoughts as well as damage done through wear and tear and ageing process. Ayurvedic physicians at the glenrock will go through your medical history, examine you and treat you accordingly in the following manner. However, Arogya WELLNESS will not use extreme treatments in line with the middle path (majjama patipada) teachings of Guatama Buddha. Gautama Buddha used experimented extreme methods such as aththakilamathanu yoga(self-mortification) and extreme pleasure (kamasukallikanu yoga) and concluded that majjamapatipada( middle path) is the right approach. In line with that, Ayurvedic physicians at Arogya WELLNESS do not therefore prescribe extensive applications of Ayurveda such as pancha karma as such treatments could well mean extreme to the foreign guest’s body and mind( different to the South Asian), resulting in damage rather than healing.
Unsophisticated lifestyle based on the teachings of Gautama Buddha has given the glenrock villager a pure mind. Simple pleasures of life(crispy fresh air, pristine water, healthy food, comfortable temperatures, natural work outs) in abundance in their own surroundings keep their body healthy. Pure mind and healthy body brings forth happiness. Santhustin Paraman Dhanan Happiness is the ultimate wealth so said Gautama Buddha.
