Harmonic living and healthy mindsets require awareness and training in mental and physical health. To this end, the Atharvanic Kriya Foundation organizes seminars, workshops, and retreats on simple and effective traditional training methods such as yoga and meditation. The Institute has selected experienced teachers to train participants with consideration to suit different cultures and living conditions. The organization specializes in mindfulness classes for young people and adults to encourage a family atmosphere of moral awareness and mutual respect to create a world of equality and peace. Moreover, with increasing domestic violence worldwide, the Foundation prioritizes psychological rehabilitation classes for victims. The Foundation also provides counseling sessions and fitness training to patients suffering from various mental and physical illnesses, including depression, anxiety, alcoholism, and drug addiction.
In urban areas today, the rate of mental and physical health problems increases for those living in regional, rural, and remote areas. Although these communities have the benefits of living in harmony with nature, health care and support services are often a challenge in the face of severe climate-dependent challenges. Survival from disaster, low employment, lack of educational opportunities, and isolation are all factors that negatively affect their state of mind and health, which is damaging to our rare and valuable cultural heritage. One of the most essential functions of the Atharvanic Kriya Foundation is to provide mental and physical health services to all rural communities without altering the essential values of their culture.
The central philosophy of the Foundation's work is that a healthy environment is the heart to living a meaningful life for all living things. The growing need for technology today is pushing humans and other organisms into poor environmental quality. Many indigenous medicinal plants and knowledge about their use have already been destroyed due to previous lack of interest. One of the Atharvanic Kriya Foundation missions is discovering, nurturing and using folklore about medicinal plants and applying it to healthier living.
The invention of technology and equipment has led to significant improvements in human living standards. However, the sudden shift from living in unity with nature to modern lifestyles affects human’s mental and physical condition to some extent. Therefore, the knowledge and secrets of ancient ways of life must be preserved and utilized during this transition. Indigenous knowledge has played an essential role in the history of health science and modern medicine development. Over the years, a large amount of outdated medical information has already been lost. Atharvanic Kriya Foundation emphasizes preserving and sharing the ancient wisdom that teaches ways to live a healthy life among various communities. This will enable the knowledge to be passed on to future generations. The Foundation conducts seminars and workshops to encourage people how to incorporate indigenous knowledge into a modern lifestyle.
In the coming years, we need more environmentally responsible and spiritually awakened citizens for the survival of our planet. This requires planting great values in our younger generation's hearts and shaping their minds and soul through mindfulness practice. The Atharvanic Kriya Foundation excitingly prepares yoga and meditation at the school level to mould the new generation with moral awareness and mutual respect. With these methods, it is possible to prevent the misbehaviour seen in children during this period. The organization trains students to build a strong foundation by enabling them to identify and nurture their natural abilities through everyday yoga and meditation. These practices strive to promote the emotional well being of teenagers and young adults.
There are many vulnerable children around the world in need of mercy from each of us. Those who suffer from hunger, those who are caught up in brutal conflict, those who live in fear of abuse, and many weak children still live unnoticed among us today. The Foundation is committed to ensuring their care, nurturing children to be healthy and strong, and empowering them to face future challenges. The Foundation also works to raise the standard of education and literacy in rural areas and help children realize their full potential.
