Harvinder Singh turns to Sahaja Yoga meditation to destress.
All work and no play makes jack a dull boy. And the busy CEOs with their hectic schedules, a stressed out lot. Hence all that chatter about work-life balance, healthy living, clean eating etc. In addition, every CEO has his or her own hack for keeping the stress levels to a minimum, or at least as low as they possibly can.

Harvinder Singh, country manager of United Airlines, India shared how he likes to de-stress with ET Panache. “My biggest stress buster is Sahaja Yoga meditation that I have been practicing for almost 14 years. I also conduct workshops for educational institutions, corporate houses, NGOs etc. as my personal contribution to society,” he said.

For those unfamiliar with the concept, Sahaja Yoga is ‘a method of meditation based on an experience called self realization (Kundalini awakening) that can occur within each human being. Through this process an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced.’

Stress management is an area that is specifically targeted by this school of meditation. “The only way to fight stress (imbalance) is to be in complete balance. To ascend in balance is what Sahaja Yoga is all about. But who would provide us the balance or the ascent? Will it come from outside? ‘Know thyself’ is the main theme of all the scriptures. The power to change has to come from within our own selves - One has to realize and understand oneself from within instead of tackling it from outside or forcing it mentally,” says the website.
