The first keynote speech by Yogacharya Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani was on creating a conscious humanity, the yogic way. He touched on how to break the cycle of Karma, Samskara, Vasana and vritti using the power of intent as a tangent adopting the yogic way. He specifically spoke about the yogic postures for pregnant women and various yogic aspects that would enhance the consciousness of the mother to bring in the new life.
Dr Tushar Dashora gave a thought-provoking talk on Karmic effect of abortion highlighting how a father is also impacted along with the mother at a karmic level. He also presented certain facts to clarify misleading assumptions on abortion.
Deepa Vaitheeshwaran gave a very interesting similarity of a mother’s womb with the Kalari pit which is beneath the earth designed based on the 5 elements and kundalini shakti. She also described Sri Chakra through Sri Vidya Yoga representing the union of Shiva Shakti and also explained the 3 main rituals performed before procreation to strength the embryo and enhance mental growth.
