Serving Wellness

The Arogya Center exists to Serve Wellness- macro and micro, within and without; the wellness of mind, body and spirit, of individual and society, humanity and nature, posterity and ancestry- all of which are interdependent and inextricable one from the next- facets and expressions of the same inherency. We experience this Service to Wellness as the inherent pulse within all beings, the fundamental expression of life, the realization that the breath which animates us is not our own, the understanding that this day does not belong to us, but to tomorrow.

Please get rid of all of this Core Principle material

Core Principles

360* Sustainability

Are only by virtue of what came before; what is to come will reveal the value of what we do now. By this principle we honor what has enabled and empowered us, realize that everything affects everything and there is no insignificant action and strive to make our actions prayers for the future and for one another. 

Good Will and Cooperation

Everything feeds Everything. Life and every endeavor is a symphony- there are no solos. Thus we make a commitment to harmony, honoring the unique story and individuality of all, choosing to see the potential for good and growth in every person and situation; to integrate each note, however seemingly disparate, into a collective symphony. 

Sincerity

Sincerity is Truth and Truth is Sincerity- and both are ever unique, ever themselves. By conforming to extrinsic processes, by numbing ourselves to the inherent pulse of our being, our true nature is sacrificed giving rise to all violence and discord; reality and the clear facts are sacrificed, giving birth to illusion, to suffering. Sincerity is agreeing to disagree, persevering through discomfort for the sake of authenticity- the conviction that there is nothing more beautiful or sacred than what is real and true

Balanced Integrity

With each breath and action we write the stories of our lives, and by this principle we consciously accept the responsibility for our lives and their contents. We embrace self-control and strive to rise beyond yearning and aversion to abide in true discrimination, in equipoise and stability- come what may.

Aspiring Attention

Attention radiates from intention- and no one can be without either. And so, we make out attention conscious, and realize every action and perception as a testament of our own character and aspiration. Being established in aspiration and awareness, confidence arises. And so with aspiring, confident attention we dress ourselves, breath, work and act all as a prayer to our deepest intention and aspiration.

Compassionate Action

We are all interconnected, different streams carrying the same waters to the same end. What affects one affects the other. Thus we resolve to abstain from degrading or abusing any and all,  to nourish one another and grow together towards our collective goals. 

Empowering Generosity

Everything in Nature is constantly giving- for there is nothing which is truly one’s own. We all benefit from every one and every thing else’s benefit. We are stronger and better together and we should strive to nourish and uplift one another.

Humility

Obstacles beset us all. Many an experience lays us low to generate new growth and insights. The only choice is to  resist and crumble or to bow down and thereby to transform.

Inherency

All power and potential wells forth from within us. There is nothing to be had or gained outside of ourselves, for the world is nothing but the emanation of the inner cosmos. The journey of life is not to acquire or possess or to seek out unreachable horizons; it is the unfolding of our gifts, the discovery of the heart’s song
