Any Guess, What did i do now? Yoga? No. This is the way , we pray our Elephant Face God.. Looks funny..

Mr. Toastmaster, Fellow members and Guests..

Every Individual is unique in character.  As like Individual, as a country, every country has some unique character and without that that country can’t live with.

I would say, forAmericathat may be Capitalism and It French it may be Socialism. In my country, the unique is spiritualism. Spiritualism is not just part of life in Easter Philosophy but it is way of life. Everything from Marriage, parenting, economy and fitness is one or other way mixed with religious belief. Today I am going to talk about how Fitness is mixed with Religious belief.

InIndia, wherever you see a mountain you can see temple in top of that. It was built there for that reason that people go there to pray a God and they will be healthy and they are doing hiking. But now the intention was subverted and government build road to reach there easy..

Even some of the mountains are considered sacred and people walk around the mountain. As per Hindu belief, circle around the God statue is more sacred.  If you go the full moon night, you can see thousands of people walk around the mountain.

My grandfather used to say he was healthy only because he was visiting temple daily. Let me explain what he does in temple. You will get to know why he is healthy. There are at lest 10 big temple in my town which was built at lest 1500 years ago and the temple are so strong even now. My grandfather used to visit temple after praying he walk around the temple that would be around 1 mile.  He used walk 3 times.  In temple, there are around 12/15 Gods.  Each time he see the God he used to do like this..

When I was studying school, I used to go to temple with my Mom. She used to pray the God and walking like this. Feet/by Feet and she advised me to do on Exam day, so that I will get good score on Exam…. Walking like this won’t make u tired but it take much time…believe me that worked. Instead of hitting books on that day, I spent walking around temple feet by feet and it gave relaxation.

You may heard about the symbol Ohm.. Some people asked me what is the meaning and I heard many meaning on that. But I believe, Saying Ohm is very good breathing exercise…You can’t just say ohm.. It should be said like. One of my uncle is Atheist and he never go to temple but he used to say ohm daily as a breathing exercise…

My uncle though me how to pray sun God when I was studying and I have been doing from then. Let me demonstrate you how to do that…

I use to do like this 24 times daily.

In my childhood, I followed all these habits… But I started rebelling my teen age by asking so many questions. But now I am thinking, if it is good for health why can’t just do without thinking about god after all I am not losing anything.
