In a matter of 7 days, they managed to touch the lives of more than 400 people across Chandigarh.
The simple yet effective meditation style, called Integrated Meditation Technique (IAM Technique), was created by theworld-renowned spiritual leader and humanitarianSri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (affectionately called “Amma”).Said IAM Technique instructor Narinder Singh: “IAM is a combination of relaxing yoga stretches, breathing and concentration exercises and takes only 20 minutes a day.It is a powerful practice that helps people find fulfilment in life. Its goal is the integration of body, breath, and mind. It is a suitable practice for people of all faiths; it is not bound to any religious or spiritual-belief system.Accordingto Indian tradition, spiritual knowledge is given free of charge. This is also the case with the IAMTechnique courses.”
The participants were delighted to learn the powerful IAM Technique for mental peace and wellbeing. Said ChiranjiLal, Inspector (In-charge VIP protection), Punjab Police, Chandigarh: “Our entire team is thankful to the team members from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham who conducted such an effective meditation program. We all want more camps to be organised as our jobs our full of stress. IAM meditation helps us de-stress, gives us peace of mind, heals the body and strengthens our faith in God.”
Said IAM Technique instructor Shweta from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham:“Meditation is not a new thing at all. For thousands of years, meditation in various forms has been taught in India. However, sages always create new forms to fit the times and in keeping with the culture, capabilities and needs of the current times. On the same lines, IAM Technique is Amma’s gift to humanity. It is easy to practice and is just 20-minutes long, yet it incorporates the best elements of all types of meditation known to the world including physical relaxation exercises, visualizations, breathing practices and stimulation of self-awareness.”
