First of all, I’m writing this message because 1. I’m inspired by Om Swami  and 2. I think our planet need us to do something tangible, positive today immediately (not in terms of technology :p). Recent UN report says that 60 Million People Displaced By World Conflicts . Tensions amongst world powers may cause another world war  which if happens, could devastate the whole planet with potential loss of billions of lives. World Health Organization’s first global report on antibiotic resistance reveals serious, worldwide threat to public health 
During this difficult times when our entire planet is ridden by wars, natural calamities, diseases and perversion of values, we often think that if we could do something about it. But the next thought tells us that “what a lowly individual like me can do?” and we end up abandoning the idea of making a change and rather choose acceptance as an excuse.
It’s true that one individual could hardly make a difference especially when the whole is collectively working against it. But the same collective efforts channelized in positive direction could make the difference we individually desire.
This is the need of the hour. And what do we need to do? 5 minutes meditation once a week on the same topic at the same time from wherever we are .
From time in memorial, India knows and practices meditation (Yoga) for its evolutionary and liberating effects for body, mind and soul. Modern research also verifies the positive effects of meditation . For skeptics, there’s even a research on yogi’s mind capabilities  by a leading psychiatric institution Menninger Foundation  (Detailed Report )
