    Project Celestial Bird

    In late 2010, during deep meditation, Swami Urgaya hasinaugurated the project Celestial Bird - a symbol of the creationof the Golden Age and invincibility for all people and nations. Itsappearance includes and stands for the universal symbol of love,compassion and peace, and affects the consciousness of theindividual and society, awakening inner qualities and peace. It isour wish that all people of the world unite in this idea and thatwe create a new era together, an era free of disease andsuffering.

    Celestial Bird is a universal symbol of love, compassion andpeace because we believe that:- Universal love awakens andtranscends cultural, ethnic, religious and racial differences. Withuniversal love, we can realize that we are all in truth oneconsciousness, and that together we build our own reality. Throughthis attitude, we will realize that the greatest progress lies inunity.- With compassion we can support and care for nature andothers, thus contributing to a better and more harmonious society,and consequently, ourselves.- Peace in the environment can beachieved by participating in residence workshops (intensiveworkshops of breathing and meditation). These workshops enhance theeffect of ancient techniques of self-awareness on

    collective peace and harmony in society.

    Divine Energy Park offers programs for current and futuregenerations to create a happy and fulfilled individual, and thehumane society of love, compassion and peace, through propertraining and self-development techniques. This program has thepower to eliminate suffering and disease from the life of theindividual and the world. Bad behaviour, negative thinking anddeviations in personality are a reflection of weakness.

    When a man raises his consciousness and his thought reaches thefinest level, his behaviour, his life and emotions become inharmony with natural laws harmonious and strong. This method ofeducation that leads to progress, prosperity and happiness willallow each individual, and thus the whole world, to grow towardsboundlessness, happiness and fulfilment. There is no need forsuffering, it is just a result or consequence of weakness ofspirit. Our true nature is the path to evolution and boundlessness.Therefore, now is the time to rise again and create a new, betterworld - The Golden Age and the nation of invincibility. Allcultures of the world have a basic desire to create a perfect andinvincible society. Invincibility of the society begins with theindividual. It is therefore of great importance to offereveryone

    What is divine breathing? Divine breathing are ancienttechniques that stimulate and increase energy, strengthen theinternal organs and thus regenerate and rejuvenate the body. Usingthese techniques, we achieve optimal functioning of the endocrine,nervous and digestive systems and gain mental and physicalstability. Breathing is the most important process of our body. Dueto an accelerated lifestyle, most people breathe incorrectly, usingonly 30-40% of their lung capacity. Our brain needs three timesmore oxygen than other organs. If it gets deprived of oxygen, itwill compensate this lack by taking it from other organs. This iswhy many people get exhausted physically as well as mentally. Up to60% of violence occurs because people do not know how to breathecorrectly. At the basic course, you will learn:

    Deep breathingIt brings the optimal amount of oxygen into thelungs, abdomen and brain, stimulates the proper functioning of theinternal organs, energizes the body, expands the lung capacity,activates the pineal and the pituitary glands, increases theactivation of neurons in the brain, removes depression, and relaxesand calms the mind.

    Anuloma-vilomaIt awakens dormant parts of the brain, balancesthe left and right brain hemispheres, activates the pineal and thepituitary glands, gives a balance to the body, stimulatesenthusiasm and raises the spirit, cures colds, sinus infections andheart blockages, clears the arteries and veins, improvescirculation, controls the cholesterol and blood fat levels and

    prevents heart attacks.

    KapalabhatiBrings the optimal amount of oxygen into the blood(pushing the accumulated prana from the abdomen into the blood andcells), rejuvenates the body and mind, increases mental potential,gives a peaceful and stable mind (no negative thoughts, depressionand anxiety), strengthens the abdomen and all organs inside theabdominal area, strengthens the reproductive organs, cures asthmaand all breathing problems, arteries blockages, heart and braindisorders, removes constipation and regulates blood sugar levels,shapes our body, gives radiance and glow to the face and softnessto the skin and cures all diseases.

    Divine food

    Food is of great importance for persons functioning, health andlife. If the food we eat is contaminated and of a low quality, thenour body is exposed to diseases, inertia and premature aging.Although food is one of the basic human needs, today people haveforgotten what it means to eat quality food. The excessive use ofpesticides is the reason more and more people today get diseasessuch as cancer, impotence and the like. Healthy, organic andunpolluted food is the prevention as well as the cure for manyphysical and mental illnesses.

    Divine Energy Park has started the project Natural food whichencourages and educates people about the natural production ofpesticide-free food and its use in everyday life. We are conductingprograms for education of children and adults on the effects thatfood has on our mind and behaviour. The goal of these activities isto revive the culture of proper nutrition and respecting thenature. When there is harmony between man and nature, the earthyields

    Shri Shivakumar Swamiji

    Man naturally seeks balance and health, but due to the impropereducation, we are facing more and more diseases and problems. Theexternal cause of the disease can be an unhealthy way of the life,stress from the environment, contaminated food, water, air, etc.The internal causes are the mental and emotional imbalance,negative way of thinking, all kinds of trauma and impressions fromthe subconscious mind. In order to heal from the disease ormaintain health, we need

    Development of natureThere is more perfection in a single dropof water, than in all the

    machines invented by men. Albert Einstein

    More and more plant and animal species disappear each day.Protect your environment by waste disposal and recycling, feed thebirds and other small animals, they will be grateful for it. Natureis a living organism that allows us to live and gives us beauty.Its preservation is of vital importance to us. Therefore, join theprojects of preserving the environment and contribute to thequality of your own life and your environment. For this purpose, wehave started the following projects:

    Tree planting programForests are crucial for nature and itscycles. Their majestic

    appearance sustains life on Earth by producing oxygen, which isessential for all living beings. Tree has a wide range of effectson the natural cycle it keeps the soil from erosion, preventsflooding, makes the soil fertile,

  • 3534

    retains moisture in the soil, affects groundwater, collects dustfrom the air, has an impact on precipitation and much more. Forestsonce covered almost two thirds of the land, and to date, thisfigure was reduced to half. It is therefore

    very important to preserve existing trees and plant new ones.Through this project, we teach people the importance of forestpreservation and encourage them to plant trees. The program isconducted in: Croatia (Petrinja, Samobor), India (Bangalore,Bidar).

    You can start by planting 10 trees

    Benefits of forests and trees:- they produce oxygen that isessential to life - they collect dust and absorb carbon dioxidethat is harmful for the environment- they make water drinkable andbeneficial for human health - they nurture and enrich soil- theyprotect from floods- they diminish the harmful effects of globalwarming

    Protect the water

    The emergence of cultures and civilizations has always beenclosely associated with drinkable water. They have evolved anddiminished because of its use. Man has always wanted to tame thebrute force of the water and his efforts have resulted in massivepollution and destruction of what he actually needs the most. Whenwe have plenty of water, we do not think about its importance.

    Shortage of drinking water in the world is already becoming aproblem, although many still do not notice it. It is therefore ofgreat importance that we pay more attention to the recklessspending of water and the use of harmful chemicals in households,agriculture and the like, so that we can protect and preserve theecosystem. All chemicals we throw in the toilet, do our laundrywith and use in agriculture end up in ground waters, which form thebasis of the entire ecosystem. Therefore, protect the water inorder to protect yourself and the environment in which we live.

    What we can do:- use water rationally- use biodegradabledetergents and household products (phosphate-free)- use naturalfertilizers, do not throw trash near the river- recycle waste

    Preserve the villages

    Through our subsidiaries located on farms near Bjelovar,Tribunj, Sisak and Koprivnica, we are promoting natural nutrition,growing organic food without the use of chemical fertilizers,pesticides or herbicides. During the courses and workshops weinvite people from nearby villages to supply natural foods. In thisway, we protect and encourage small businesses and villagers.

    This humanitarian project includes education of families livingfrom agriculture. When families practice meditation, breathing,healing techniques and organic agriculture, they achieve success inthe agricultural field as a harmonious united family that knows howto deal with everyday challenges, tensions and stress. This is acomprehensive program with the aim to bring awareness of thedangers of chemicals and their harmful effects on humans, animalsand plants.

    Development of peacewith Divine residence

    Unity, compassion and tolerance are the steps to creating peaceon Earth. Shri Shivakumar Swamiji

    The need and desire for peace and harmonious co-existence isalways present in the minds of people, at the level of anindividual, family, society, nation and the world. Although anindividual is only a small unit of the entire society, one cangreatly contribute to overcoming of these problems, because,creating a peaceful world begins with peaceful individuals. DivineEnergy Parks conducts Divine residence workshop through whicheach

    individual can act on a global level by learning to live inaccordance with Natural law; develops consciousness, care towardsnature, animals and spread message of peace in the environment.Divine residence is the key by which we achieve and create harmony,peace and happiness in the environment, neutralize stress,negativity and deviations of the society. When we meditate in agroup, we radiate harmony and coherence of much greater power thanwhen we meditate individually.

    to work together on global peace.

    Invincibility for all nations

    Our physiology has the ability to use the unlimited potential ofconsciousness. The problem is that we do not know how toachieve

    this. Divine Health Program and Divine residences are the meansby which each individual has the opportunity to taste and use thislimitlessness, bliss and fulfilment. In the past, civilizationsconquered and defended themselves through stress, killing andweapons. The

    consequence of this was even greater suffering and frustration.This manner of behaviour is the lack of knowledge about the truevalue of life. The power of the nation is not in arms, but in theconsciousness. When the consciousness of the nation is strong,peace and harmony are present in society. Then no negative externalforce can penetrate into the nation, it gradually protects anddevelops itself. Divine Energy Park offers a program of divineresidences, whose power acts on the collective consciousness of thenation, strengthening and elevating it to the field of unlimitedcosmic intelligence. With these programs, a person becomes themaster of his fate and respects the law of nature and life. Theseprograms will allow each nation to develop the economy, educationand power. This is a simple way of unity, harmony and progress forall nations and races. Join us in this program to create the GoldenAge.

    Intensive group meditations have the power to prevent disastersor crime. It has been found that it takes only 1% of the populationthat regularly performs these workshops in order to feel theeffects and impact of the increased harmony and order in theenvironment. The theory of 1% has been scientifically proven inmany studies of effects in nature. For example, it is sufficientthat only 1% of the cells in the brain work in harmony for thewhole brain to function harmoniously; it takes only one crystal inthe solution to induce crystallization of the entire solution, tostart the emission of the laser beam it is enough that 1% of theparticles of light act coherently... These workshops last for threedays or more and allow people to relax deeply, deepen theirexperiences and listen to various lectures about the spirit,consciousness, health and

    regeneration Group meditation is the key in todays age by whichwe can ensure a future we want. Workshops are held in Europe, Indiaand Indonesia. We would like to invite all who are interested tojoin our goal
