NEWS AND VIEWS FROM SAMARTH COMMUNITY
This week, Samarth conducted an exclusive Art Masterclass on Mandala Art. A Mandala is a spiritual, meditative and ritual symbol in Asian cultures. The sanskrit word mandala loosely translates to mean “circle” or “center.” In Hinduism and Buddhism, the belief is that by entering the Mandala and proceeding towards its center, you are guided through the cosmic process of transforming the universe from one of suffering into one of joy and happiness. This art form provides relief from the stress, anxiety, and depression and is a great tool for Seniors to relax as well as exercise the mind which is equally important part of well-being.
Samarth also organized an exclusive online Yoga class for Seniors on 18th November. The class was conducted by an acclaimed Yoga teacher from Utsav foundation and was loved by all senior community members who attended it,
