Surprise agenda for CA students' conference: pranic healing
December, 18th 2008
It's the coming together of one of the world's oldest professions with one of the world's oldest forms of healing. After technical
sessions involving heavy subjects such as foreign exchange, double-taxation avoidance agreement and participatory notes, over 1,500 chartered accountant students will learn the unconventional at a regional conference on Thursday: the art of empowering one's life through pranic healing.
The organisers of the conference, Southern India Chartered Accountants Association (SICASA), feel the healing session will help CA students -- who have a 15-18 hour gruelling daily schedule -- beat stress and learn to relax.
"From attending tuitions classes in the morning to working under a senior accountant during the daytime to finally attending classes in the evening, CA students often undergo tremendous stress. They need to relax. The pranic healing session will help them get some tips on how to cope with their hectic schedule," K P Muralidharan, Southern India region chairman of SICASA, said.
Kamaraj Arangam on Mount Road will play host to the two-day SICASA conference where Padmini Ramesh of Pranic Healing Home is going to take the students through the simple yet powerful and effective system of no-touch energy healing. The 60-minute healing session is going to utilise prana (life energy) and the chakras (energy centres) to heal diseased energy levels. Ramesh was not available for comment as she was travelling.
CA students sound excited about the pranic healing session. Says Krishnan, "I have heard about pranic healing but don't have a clear idea. Maybe it could help me ease tension. Sometimes at the beginning of a week, I and my friends do feel stressed. May be this session will actually help."
Adds Muralidharan, "A programme for self-empowerment through pranic healing for CA students coming for a regional conference might sound out of place. But we feel it will help students. Moreover, Padmini Ramesh is a world-renowned and much sought-after pranic healer."
