Gangtok, 24 Apr:
Co-author of the bestselling book, The Heartfulness Way, Joshua Pollock, called on Chief Minister Pawan Chamling today.
During the interaction, the CM shared his vision of the Organic Mission in Sikkim and its significant contribution to human welfare. He further underlined that the Organic Philosophy was based on principles of peace and non-violence and that it should extend to the purity of thought and action without limiting it to food alone.
In this context, it was suggested that Sikkim has the ideal environment for a world-class wellness center which include elements of yoga and meditation to promote spiritual tourism. This interfaith center will attract both domestic as well as international seekers of spirituality.
Mr Pollock briefed the CM about the activities of The Heartfulness Institute and shared with him the vision of Kamlesh D Patel [fondly known as “Daaji”] which is in sync with vision of the CM.
“Due to these common values, there is great potential for a fruitful partnership between the Government of Sikkim and the Heartfulness Institute. Such a partnership would be of great benefit to the people of Sikkim and the world,” Mr Pollock added.
He gave a brief introduction to the book which contains a dialogue between a seeker and his spiritual guide, revealing the transformative practices of Heartfulness.
The Heartfulness Way is available on Amazon.in and at all leading local bookstores.
