Shri Kamlesh Patel ‘Daaji’, Guide of Heartfulness Meditation Worldwide said, “When we talk about balance in life, the balance has also to begin from within. It’s not always about work-life balance and so on. It must be about the balance within. Both spiritual and materialistic aspects must be balanced. This knowledge comes from yog and meditation alone.”
Shri Pullela Gopichand, ace Indian Badminton Coach said, “One of the most important things in any sport is to leave anxiety behind before a match. But most people are gripped by anxiety most times. This must go. Balance and control come through yog and meditation. I have been an ardent yog and Heartfulness meditation practitioner and I see the difference it can bring to sports or any area of life for that matter.”
