Health Education for Peaceful Life
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Our mental and emotional state not only affects our attitudes but has a direct impact on our physical health. Today scientists have understood and published the negative impact on health caused by stress and other negative emotions. Jain scripture has explained in detail the relationship of Himsa (violence) and Ahimsa (nonviolence), with the mental and physical state of a person. Jainism has also prescribed various methods to control and maintain our physical and mental health. Preksha is one such practical and systematic method for healthy living. If one is healthy and physically fit then that person can take care of family, enjoy the company of friends, perform diligently at work and finally concentrate on the Self.
