Bramacharie General Balanced and Healthy lifestyle situation test

Under these following link we can find same test in more comfortable, simple formats for print out and fill it up: *.doc format and *.pdf format 🙂

We are now developing this page. Inconveniences regretted 😦

By mercy of Sri Sri Radha Gopinath, this body or machine are initially created quite strong and usually by our own careless life style we damage Krishna’s body, with given in our care for Devotional services. Time by time we suddenly find our self in hospital or just out of services with strong physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual health problems. It means, 5-10-20 or more years we are already stealing away: time, our Devotion emotions and Bhakti from Krishna and His Beloved Devotees by neglecting our own Balanced and Healthy lifestyle and Sadhana. “Prevention is best precision” – we can save up to 80 % of friendship, destructive emotions, health, time and other precious resources, if we will take needful actions at right time, place and circumstances (kala, desa, patra) to perceive and take quite good care of that machine, made of the material energy and given to our care by Sri Krishna Him self. (BG 18.61)

This test will takes about 25-30 minutes of Your precious time. Generally, there are two types of answers on questions:

1st accept answer by marking empty box () with mark “X”, simultaneously there can be more than one correct answers to same question, if it is not, there is a special mentioned “only one answer” in particular question.

2nd free or other answer, mark with “________”, where You please openly write Your answer, thoughts, situations etc.

Thank You very much in advance for Your genuine cooperation to Please A.C. Srila Prabhupada and Sri Sri Radha Gopinath. J

1. Aims for Balanced and Healthy lifestyle education is support and help every self interested Bramacaries come up to Balanced and Healthy lifestyle level recommended by Krishna in BG, SB and CC. Improve chanting, attentiveness, clarity in mind, sadhana, self esteem and confidence etc. and ultimetlu harmonise our relationships between Devotees themselves and with Shastra/Sadu/Guru and Sri Sri Radha Krishna, Particular steps come up to this level

1.1. By different actions (tests, leaflets, education cores, individual consultations etc) bring awareness in Bramacharies mind and conciseness about really possible health for everyone Bramacharie – in reality we are personally and as communities losing faith to have Balanced and Healthy lifestyle as recommended by Lord Sri Krishna in BG, SB and CC.

He who is regulated in his habits of eating, sleeping, recreation and work can mitigate all material pains by practicing the yoga system.” For that there are some gradual steps to strain for in order to strengthen our general health. First go sleep after 6pm, if body tied and ask for that. Untimely at lees before 9pm.
