Modern day students' life is one full of stress and mostly unwanted mental turbulence. It is in this jumbled mind state that life is approached with which eventually drops the graph of the student in not just academics but with respect to every aspect of one's life. The Happiness Program which is also known as YES+ (Youth Empowerment Skills) was thus conducted by an Art of Living teacher for the students of M.Com batch 2016-17. The teacher Mr. Ram helped the students to imbibe a fitness regime in the form of Yoga as well as aided in cleansing a cluttered mind in the form of meditation, patterned and rhythmic breathing techniques as well as the renowned "Sudharshana Kriya" in the program that lasted in its full swing for a whole week. Redeeming one's own mind to act in a peaceful and organized manner at all situations was a marvel that most of them experienced in this one week of the program. The final phase of the program witnessed all students being taken to the Art Of Living Ashram in Kanakapura Road, Bengaluru to merely experience the gravity with which the volunteer based organization piloted by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar, is working to bring in world peace and to accomplish the motto of Vasudeva Kutumbakam ie., "One World One Family". Despite being a week long break from academics, the amount of value addition that was done in the one week of the program was immense with its positivity sure to reverberate in everyone's life for a long time to come.
