Is it necessary to learn Heartfulness from a trainer? Can I not learn it on my own?

The main purpose of learning from a trainer is for them to impart yogic Transmission. As already proposed, you can determine for yourself whether a trainer is necessary or not by conducting a simple experiment. Simply meditate on your own without a trainer, and when you are satisfied that you have fully comprehended that experience, meditate along with a trainer, at which time you will receive yogic Transmission. Compare the two experiences. Only by conducting such an experiment will your heart be convinced.

You can reach out to a trainer either in person at our Heartfulness Centers, or from the comfort of your home or office by logging into the HeartsApp and requesting an introduction to the practice.

20 साल-भारतीय राजनीति के अजेय नायक: नरेन्द्र मोदी

नरेंद्र मोदी की भारतीय राजनीति में सर्वाधिक प्रभावी भूमिका का दौर गुजरात की राजनीति से 2001 में शुरू हुआ। दरअसल इस समय गुजरात के तत्कालीन मुख्यमंत्री केशुभाई पटेल ने उप चुनावों में बीजेपी की हार के बाद मुख्यमंत्री पद से इस्तीफा दे दिया था और उस समय गुजरात में बीजेपी को ऊंचाइयों पर पहुँचाने वाले एक बड़े रणनीतिकार को पहली बार गुजरात का मुख्यमंत्री अक्टूबर, 2001 में बनाया गया और ये पोलिटिकल ब्रेन थे नरेंद्र मोदी। मोदी ऐसे सर्वप्रिय राजनेता हैं जिन्होंने राष्ट्रवाद को नई दिशा दी है। पड़ोसी देश पाकिस्तान के आतंकी मंसूबों के खिलाफ़ आपने अल्ट्रा जीरो टॉलरेंस पालिसी अपनाई। ये मोदी जी ही है जिन्होंने उरी टेरर अटैक के बाद पाकिस्तान को साफ-साफ कह दिया कि कश्मीर घाटी में खून और पानी एक साथ साथ नही बह सकता, इसलिए भारत ने सिंधु जल समझौते के समीक्षा को क्रॉस बॉर्डर टेररिज्म से जोड़ दिया। भारत द्वारा दो दो बार सर्जिकल स्ट्राइक करना, पाकिस्तान से मोस्ट फेवर्ड नेशन का दर्जा वापस लेना मोदी की मजबूत इच्छा शक्ति का ही प्रमाण है। मोदी के नेतृत्व में म्यांमार की भूसीमा के अंदर भारत ने सर्जिकल स्ट्राइक कर भारत विरोधी उग्रवादी संगठनों के टेरर कैम्पों का खात्मा कर दिया। कश्मीर का गलवान हो या अरुणाचल का तवांग, सिक्किम का नकूला दर्रा हो या उत्तराखंड का कालापानी लिपुलेख भारतीय प्रधानमंत्री ने पड़ोसी देशों को मर्यादित रहना सिखाया है।
