A Workout Anyone Can Do
WHILE TODAY NEARLY EVERYONE APPRECIates the need for daily exercise to stay fit and healthy, many don’t realize the need to maintain a balanced spiritual life through daily practices. The Spiritual Workout app is designed primarily for Hindus who would like to maintain a daily spiritual practice, but don’t have much time for it and can’t seem to fit it into their life.
The free app has four main areas: worship, introspection, affirmation and study. The Worship section includes mantras, chants and a Ganesha Puja (with audio files for learning). The Introspection section includes “Aum” chanting, a simple breathing exercise and a guided meditation. The Affirmation section presents several affirmations which can be repeated to positively reprogram one’s subconscious mind, and the Study section makes available some of Himalayan Academy’s important publications. The “10 Minute Sadhana” section organizes these four areas into a standard routine. There is also a timer for use in your own custom spiritual regimen.
The app was inspired by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami’s publisher’s desk article which you can read here: bit.ly/PublishersDesk
