”Stop diabetes” as a national movement is launched in Bangalore on 14th. that is just opening doors which is relatively easy. Claiming to change the trend of diabetes in the country - is it not a big claim ? Dr Desh Bandhu Gupta, the chairman and MD of Lupin as the president of this launch function, having involved fully, is keen to see it happen. We are brain storming for bigger impact than 5000 diabetics practising in each of the 30 cities - a total of 1,50,000 persons in all as announced in the launch program. Dr DBG says that the number of diabetics in the country is nearing 7 crores and in the next 10 years it will reach 10 crores. Can we find ways for bigger numbers than just 1,50,000 in the next 5 to 10 years is the challenge pricking his brain? Any ideas ? Pl send email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my email email@example.com or on the email of Sri Rajaram Iyer firstname.lastname@example.org , the chief facilitator based in Prashanti Kutiram or even on the email for our national co-ordinator Sri Ravindra Acharya email@example.com
Yet another major event in our university is the widespread movement for protection of Cows and thereby, build the economy and health of our villages. a big siddha yatra for the envisioned nationwide movement to come up from October 15, 2009 to Feb 15, 2010. Spearheaded by Pujya Raghaveshwarananda Bharati Swamiji of Ramachandrapur Mutt who has entrusted the work of research on Cows and their products–paòca gavya to us and we have made a humble beginning of setting up a Gou Anusandhana Kendra in the Prashanti campus. We will be having 100 cows to start research on the effect of music, agnihotra, vedic chanting, etc on the yield of milk from these cows. We will investigate the beneficial effects of milk from Desi cows compared to the large milk-yielding cows of the West - Jersey and Holestein breeds. We are now planning for an international conference from December 25th to 28th this year. As a preparation to this big yatra in 2009, Swamiji is going round the country from Oct 15th (inauguration in Hyderabad) to Feb 15 (valedictory in Bangalore) covering 24 cities, having large number of meetings with sadhus and saints, young masters, businessmen, politicians, workers and agriculturalists, etc to plan
extensively for the big Yatra in 2009 - 2010.
Another movement emerging in Karnataka is by Pujya Swamiji of Swarnavalli Mutt bringing up the dimensions of Bhagavadgètá for mental health through a conference in NIMHANS auditorium on September in collaboration with SVYASA and NIMHANS. See more details inside.
Prashanti will soon be starting to equip itself with a grand academic block on one side and a Holistic Healing center with nearly 500 free beds facility with all modern amenities and facilities of medical treatment made available to public at large to bring the holistic approach to health care delivery system - a model for the emerging future. We will be laying the foundation for them on 28th of this month ( details to come up next month) for the first phase of this HHC and soon next month for the Academic block. We invite all our philanthropic donors to come forward to support us through their munificent donations for which they are entitled to get 125% tax exemption under 35 I (ii) which got renewed a few months ago.
