At the dining table, we are for the most part under the influence of the taste-sense. It is an emotional condition actually, where our judgement could be impaired. Only in order to generate the appropriate corrective, awareness, some special exercise called 'Kaya Kalpa' is prescribed before taking food or drink. What should be remembered is that nourishment is not in direct proportion to the quantity of food-intake. The food-items should be such as are suited to our digestive system and we should have felt appetite well in advance.

      Actually when  your stomach remains hungry for a while, the cells of the body naturally get oriented to draw sustenance from the atmosphere,(space) and from inner- earth radiations. Then you go to your lunch or dinner and there is balance in intake. If you follow this advice you will  find that your intellectual faculties are rendered more brisk and sharp as a result."

Vethathiriyam for Individual Peace, Family Peace and World Peace

Our Objective

“To Develop and Empower the downtrodden and tribal masses of The Nilgiris through Yoga Education and enable them to ascertain their Social, Community and Cultural Identities to build a sustainable future for themselves”
UMKM Trust’s Arivu Thirukovil ( Temple of Consciousness – Ooty ) was built in June 2004 and has served as the home to thousands in Yoga Education, Personality Development and Value Education, Yoga Therapy, Health Camps and Meditation throughout the district.

Though formally registered in the year 1999, the UMKM Trust had a very humble beginning 40 years ago in Professor Sathyamurthy’s Laboratory. Those days he used to conduct classes on SKY and Kaya Kalpa for free to the poor and the tribals. Also he mustered volunteers to travel across the rough terrain of the Niligiris to spread awareness on education, health and family welfare.

NILIGIRIS PLIGHT

The Nilgiris ( Blue Mountains ) – The name symbolises lush green landscapes and beautiful mountains for its eternal beauty. It has been a travellers’’ paradise for ever till date. Every Year thousands of tourists visit Ooty, Conoor, Masinagudi to enjoy the various attractions on offer.

However the lives of the tribals and the deprived is still socio-economically backward. The people here still live in isolation and are not even met with basic needs like Food, Shelter and Education. Inhabitated by communities such as The Badagas, The Thodas, The Kotas, The Kurumbas, The Irulas, The Panias and The Kattunaikens. The Latter five in fact have been further identified as the Primitive Tribal Groups by the Government of India. The Badagas have been declared as the most hospitable community by the UNESCO – thanksgiving article in The Hindu dt July 6, 2009 .

The Majority of these tribes are economically deprived, socially marginalised and lack basic facilities and resources. Their access to health and education is very limited. Deficiency of essential components has led to malnutrition, protein calorie malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies ( Vitamin A, iron and iodine ) among them. They are also prone to chronic diseases such as Sickle Cell Anaemia which is commonplace in hilly areas.

Introduction:

The World Community Service Centre founded by Yogiraj Vethathiri Maharishi has been teaching Integrated Yoga practices consisting of.

  • Simplified Physical Exercise for maintaining good health by curing diseases and improving the immunity power against diseases.
  • Simplified Meditation and Introspection Methods to keep the mind in peaceful state and to lead a virtuous way of life.
  • Simplified Kayakalpa Exercise to conserve life energy to maintain youthfulness and ensure longevity of life.

Contents Of The Course:

Simplified Physical Exercise:

A set of exercises has been designed as synthesis of different yogasana practices. This can be practiced by any person above the age of eight. The contents of simplified exercises are as follows:

  • Hand exercises
  • Leg exercises
  • Neuro-muscular breathing exercises
  • Eye exercises
  • Kapalapathy
  • Makarasana Part 1 & 2
  • Massage
  • Acu-pressure
  • Relaxation

These Physical exercises ensure proper circulation of blood, heat and air in the body.

The Foot Reflexology in the leg exercise activates the nerves and correct Electrical imbalances. Breathing exercise ensures increase in the intake of oxygen which will help to purify the blood.

Eventhough most of these exercises are helpful to cure some diseases like arthritis, sinasitis, spondilatis etc., they are mainly useful for prevention of occurrence of diseases.

Simplified Kundalini Yoga

Astanga Yoga (Yoga in eight steps) evolved by Pathanjali Saint has been simplified to suit the needs of modern way of life. The principles and practices adopted in this simplified meditation are based on scientific principles.

It is a fact that human being is always in emotional mood due to hereditary imprints and environmental factors. By doing this meditation, the frequency of mind is reduced from Beta (14-40 cycles per second – emotional mood) to Alfa (8-13 cps – awareness stage). The practitioner is able to keep the mind at pituitary gland (Master gland for five senses) and do his/her activities (Thought, word and deed) with awareness of the consequences. This will enable any practitioner to keep the mind in a peaceful state and to develop willpower, avoid pains / diseases and also to solve problems.

III.Introspection Or Self Analysis

This is another important practice in this system of yoga. With the willpower derived by meditation, the practitioner will be able to develop positive thinking, can be free from desires which can not be fulfilled, can neutralize anger and eradicate worries.

By doing this practice, one is able to understand the “Causes and Effect System” of Nature. He will adopt moderation in food, physical activities, sleep, sex, and thought force so that he/she will neither ignore nor over indulge in these five aspects. This will enable the individual to lead a virtuous way of life with three phases namely morality (not to cause harm physically or mentally), duty (due to society) and charity (helping others by physical labour, material and knowledge)

kayakalpa yoga practices

Science of Kayakalpa delineates the manner in which the human body can be immortalized. Kaya Kalpa Yoga has a three-fold objective:

  • Withstanding the ageing process:
  • Maintaining health and youthfulness and
  • Postponing one’s death to suit one’s wishes.Tli

Kayakalpa comprises two important exercises:

  • Recycling of vital energy and
  • Toning of nervous system.

If these two exercises are learnt and practiced regularly immunity of individual will be raised to a remarkable instant.

The practice enables and equips one to maintain physical and mental health, further spiritual development and rejuvenate the physical body to withstand the ageing process. The practice will benefit everyone, regardless of sex, race, religion, caste, to enjoy a happy and energetic life.
