JAIPUR, India - July 9, 2017 - PRLog -- Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 verse 36 – 39 highlights three types of happiness – Saatvic, Raajasic and Taamasic. That which in the beginning is like poison but in the end like nectar; that happiness, born from the tranquility of one's own mind, is declared to be sattvsic. That which in the beginning, through contact between the senses and their objects, is like nectar, and in the end like poison; that happiness is declared to be raajasic. That happiness which both in the beginning and afterwards deludes the self, arising from sleep, laziness, and negligence, is declared to be taamasic".

Matter of pride that Banasthali which is a centre for Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching PMMMNMTT has organized a weeklong 9 - 15 July  2017 national workshop at Gyan Mandir Auditorium on wellbeing and  happiness. The deliberations in the workshop would include movement therapy, diet and mood, ergonomics, stress management, art and happiness, communication skills and self management.

Prof Ina Shastri Pro Vice Chancellor Banasthali who has played a stellar role in the growth and development of the university gave an auspicious start on 9 July 2017 by lighting the ceremonial lamp and in her inaugural address emphasized on the harmony aspect of happiness and well being.  Prof Indu Bansal Dean Faculty of Home Science Convener of workshop in her speech highlighted the state f mind in dealing with happiness and wellbeing. Faculty Ms Vaishali anchored the proceedings, Ms Shweta Dubaey proposed vote of thanks. Research scholar Ms Bhavna kept the audience mesmerized by her singing prowess which goes to prove that music has a lot to do in bringing happiness.

It goes without saying that While Happiness is an ingredient in wellbeing, one can have well being without happiness also.  Achievement of extrinsic goals could lead to wellbeing but achievement of intrinsic goals will result in happiness. The proceedings of this workshop are bound to evolve holistic thinking not only on the interrelationship between happiness and wellbeing but also on methods of achieving the same.
