Aatmabal – The strength within

We launch today, this blog called Atmabal – The inner strength which wishes to depict a project by this very name, conducted under the aegis of the Shri Sai Samartha Vidnyan Prabodhini designed and conducted by Dr. (Mrs.) Nanda Aniruddha Joshi, (fondly called Nandaai). Atmabal completes its 14th successful year in 2014.

Here the name says it all.

'Atmabal' is about the inner strength of the woman – the strength that exists in her in any case but that she might just need to become aware of, the strength that she might just need to get in touch with, be it after an effort at exploration, the strength that belongs to her core and so can eventually seep into her personality and become her – natural and easy.

....for we believe that empowerment comes essentially from within and not without.

And so this blog is a call, an arm extended in love and friendship from 'Aai' to every woman inviting her to become part of this joyful experience of discovering her own self. She discovers her capacities and equipped with confidence and zeal returns to life but with a renewed perspective that will make a world of precious difference in it.

.....for the change has to happen inside.

The woman, be she in the role of the daughter, the wife or the mother – contributes a major share towards building family bonds, personalities of children and so in a way, also towards a healthier society. Therefore it is she who must in the first place, equip herself with strength, positivity and the ability to give and receive love.

.....for you can give only what you have.

So what is the 'Atmabal' course all about?

This course spread over 6 months with a session per week, has been thoughtfully and painstakingly designed by Dr. Mrs. Nanda Aniruddha Joshi. Enactments, discussions, projects and presentations specific to the theme lead the students to interact with the outside world on the one hand and get in touch with their own selves on the other. Although the basic course concept remains the same, the theme, an issue of social relevance or any significant issue at all, has been a new one every year.

Apart from other skills, the art of time management that includes organization of work and home including multi-tasking for instance features as a major guidance area as a streamlined lifestyle is happy and manageable.

Commonly and widely spoken, the English is now a language of all business and formal transactions. Therefore speaking English is not just a need but an asset and fluency builds confidence in social interaction. Women who do not know English at all are taught basic communication, those who only need brushing up are given suitable opportunities.

The course ends with an evening of music and presentations put up by the students in which all participate irrespective of age, profession, etc. The intention is to rid the women of stage fears or inhibitions felt owing to feelings of insufficiency.

Dr. Mrs. Nanda Aniruddha Joshi personally conducts every session and is part of the designing – course delivery and material – every single year. She even directs all the presentations and skits to be staged in the end-session programme.

The enrolment procedure is simple and necessitates an application. The batch is chosen based on individual personal interaction with the aspiring students.

Atmabal is by no means the women's liberation movement. Not at all. It is meant for the development and progress of the woman's personality, for the sake of her own happiness and that of her family and dear ones.

The journey of the woman's self-exploration is set in motion and will continue for life.....beautiful at every step because she has 'Atmabal' behind her, with her and inside of her.

.... for 'Atmabal' is formation of appropriate approach – towards life, towards the world and above all towards her own self.

All women who experience Atmabal strike fond bonds – with themselves and with others who were with them. However long be the chain, the hand at the end is always free to hold one more. Come let us hold hands.....

.....and be ambadnya – let us remain in awareness and in loving gratitude for the Sadguru's love for us – our Great Mother (Mothi Aai – Mahishasurmardini), our foremost source of strength.
