Welcome to Tathaastu in 2013! We hope you had a great holiday season, and are
bringing in the New Year with hope and optimism. A special greeting also goes
out to our Tathaastu Canada readers. We look forward to conducting healing
workshops and spiritual events in cities in Canada, and in various places around
the world as Tathaastu magazine editions are launched internationally.
We also take this opportunity to thank all our readers, subscribers, and
advertisers. We are now in the 7th calendar year of publication and this
magazine has grown and expanded due to the positive energy and good wishes of
our supporters through the years.
In today’s world, we constantly overload our bodies, minds, and thoughts. Our
lives are crammed with activities, information, projects, food – without really a
break. In this issue, we provide you with tools and ideas to help you deal more
effectively with day-to-day living, to make it more efficient and satisfactory, and
to cleanse and nourish the body and the mind.
At the beginning of a new year, we are all motivated to take greater care of our
health and diet – work out more, eat healthier foods, cook fresh meals daily. But
as the days and months wear on, this resolve often simply dissolves! In our
Spotlight article, “Eating for Balance, Vitality, and Joy,” Dr. Chopra and
Dr. Simon advise an Ayurvedic nutritional plan and lifestyle to lessen food
cravings and increase the intake of healthy foods.
A daily practice of Pranayama can go a long way in healing the body and soul. In
the article “Pranayama and Accessing Higher Pranic
Energies,” Dr. Frawley explains that prana is
more than just the physical breath. Prana in
the higher sense is the spirit, the awareness
that not only inhabits the body and mind,
but transcends them.
I wish that you rejoice in your inner spirit with
Tathaastu and that you find good health, peace
