Living non-religious spirituality in a cosmopolitan city, London
In this show Dr. Rahoul Masrani talks to Dr. Vijay Murthy about how his life underwent a slow but profound shift in his exploration of ethical living and spiritually. He explains what it is to live a non-religious spiritual life by embracing ethical living principles and following the principles of 'non-hurt' from the Yoga philosophy in a cosmopolitan city like London. In this fast-paced, hectic world, increasing numbers of people are looking to become healthier, both mentally and physically. Instead of seeking instant gratification, it is essential to ‘trust the process’ and allow ourselves to embrace change in a gradual, unforced way. If you are looking to become healthier, reduce your carbon footprint and live your life in a more conscious manner, making small changes will go a long way. Never force yourself to embrace change and always question the motivations and intentions behind your decisions. The more we work to better understand the impacts of our choices, the more likely we are to become healthier and happier in the long run.
