BALANCING NEEDS OF
BODY AND SOUL AT WORK
GIVES STRESS FREE LIFE

The SCIENCES OF CREATION AND LIFE called veD stipulates that a life journey of between a cylce of birth and death has to be lived by balancing all goals, objectives and purposes of life. This balance is to empower the following 4 puruSHaaARth of life journey to function as per its design of creation, sustenance and recreation by creator bRH`m.

 puruSHaaARth means objective and purposes of life journey. There are 4 puruSHaaARth:

  • aARTH puruSHaaARth, meaning creation of wealth and polity to sustain societal life;
     
  • kaam puruSHaaARth  meaning providing fulfillment of all desires and wishes for joy, happiness and aanND (supreme bliss):
     
  • DHARm puruSHaaARth meaning realizing aARth, kaam and moKSH puruSHaaARth as per the rules of DHARm. The fundamental rule of DHARm states that whatever kARm meaning life activity one performs should be such that it does not harm oneself or anybody or anything in the creation;
     
  • moKSH puruSHaaARth meaning realizing the power to make life journeys without the pain and suffering.

 The balancing of these 4 puruSHaaARth removes stresses, pain and suffering that are experienced in life as reported in the Canadian Globe and Mail. The corporate leaders of this world are now saying that:

  • Workplace stress and depression are exacting a heavy toll, particularly among conscientious employees ''in their prime working years";
  • Workplace stress is a factor in the onset of mental illness;
  • $33-billion or more a year in lost production alone due to mental illnesses - the biggest of which is depression;
  • Evidence is well mounted to suggest that the current rates of untreated mental illness in the work force pose material risks to the realization of optimal shareholder value and may constitute a form of unfunded liability in the affairs of public companies.

 The balancing of the 4 puruSHaaARth in life will empower you and your body as follows to live a stress free life and thus eliminate pain and suffering from stress:

  • EMPOWER ONE'S BODY so that it cannot be overused or misused or abused in creation of wealth as per the rules of aARTH puruSHaaARth. The science of aARTH puruSHaaARth stipulates how wealth and polity for oneself and one's family and for the sustenance of all of one's obligations to the rest of the fellow creations is to be created based on the rules of DHARm.
     
  • EMPOWER ONE'S BODY IN WHICH IS EMBODIED ONE'S aat`maa (SOUL) to experience all the wishes and desires which gives one pleasure, joy, happiness and aanND (supreme bliss).  This wish called kaam puruSHaaARth should be realized and performed according to the rules of DHARm as noted above.
     
  •  EMPOWER ONE'S aat`maa (SOUL) THROUGH ONE'S BODY TO KNOW ITSELF. This knowing oneself is called the process of realizing aatmaa-GNaan meaning knowledge of aatmaa. This is achieved in life through DHARm puruSHaaARth whereby one learns all about DHARm through the SCIENCES OF CREATION AND LIFE called veD. And after learning one lives one's life by the use of that knowledge.
     
  • EMPOWER ONE'S aat`maa TO ATTAIN moKSH meaning freedom from the pain and suffering experienced in each life journey. This is called moKSH puruSHaaARth

WORKPLACE STRESS
A HEAVY TOLL ON HUMAN WELL-BEING
says World's Corporate Leaders

By VIRGINIA GALT
WORKPLACE REPORTER
Canadian GLOBE AND MAIL:
Tuesday, February 17, 2004 - Page B1


Workplace stress and depression are exacting a heavy toll, particularly among conscientious employees "in their prime working years," say a group of corporate leaders who have pledged to conduct mental health audits of their own organizations.

A set of guidelines, to be released today by the Global Business and Economic Roundtable on Addiction and Mental Health, says mental illness is now the leading cause of employee disability and, as such, should be addressed at the corporate board level.

The document, which will be circulated to the boards of all publicly traded companies in Canada, clearly acknowledges that "workplace stress is a factor in the onset of mental illness," with depression being the most common disorder.

"The case for the importance and severity of mental disability is incontrovertible," said John Evans, chairman of Toronto-based Torstar Corp. and one of seven corporate chairmen or chief executive officers who have already endorsed the guidelines.

"We are dealing with something that is not under control," he said.

"In fact, it is growing," said Dr. Evans, a physician.

Business leaders not only have a moral duty, but a corporate obligation, to address mental health issues in their workplaces, Dr. Evans said in an interview yesterday.

Corporate boards should be compelled to report on what they have done to reduce the risk factors that contribute to stress and depression.

Corporate lawyer Bill Wilkerson, co-founder and CEO of the mental health roundtable, said in an interview that some of the most common triggers are "excessive and unrelenting" deadlines, too much work to do with too few resources -- "part and parcel of the whole downsizing culture that's going on" -- work rules that rob employees of any discretion on how best to do the job and "lack of recognition for good work done."

The guidelines advise corporate boards that the risks can be reduced "through sound management practices."

Granted, employees carry outside stresses into the workplace with them, said Dr. Evans, but employers should do what they can to lighten the load. Something as simple as flexible work arrangements for employees with heavy family responsibilities can go a long way to help, as can a sympathetic approach to an employee who needs time off to deal with stress or depression.

The stigma attached to mental health disorders often keeps employees from seeking help, he said. So they suffer in silence, become more ill and their productivity slips.

Dr. Evans said that more than 10 per cent of Canadians suffer from depression at one time in their lives.

The business roundtable estimates that the costs of mental illness in the labour force "exceed $33-billion a year in lost production alone."

And those most vulnerable are men and women in mid-career "with 10 or more years of service with their current employer -- the heart of our labour force, the most loyal and productive of our people and the backbone of our economy," according to the document to be released today.

"Evidence is well mounted to suggest that the current rates of untreated mental illness in the work force pose material risks to the realization of optimal shareholder value and may constitute a form of unfunded liability in the affairs of public companies."

The roundtable is supported by a coalition of business leaders who have long advocated better mental health practices in Canadian workplaces.

In addition to Dr. Evans, those committed to adopting the guidelines for their corporate boards include: Yves Fortier, chairman of Montreal-based Alcan Inc., John Hunkin, president and CEO of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Michael Wilson, chairman of Toronto-based UBS Global Asset Management (Canada) Co., Tim Price, chairman of Toronto-based Brascan Financial Corp., Guy Saint-Pierre, chairman of Royal Bank of Canada and Gordon Nixon, president and CEO of Royal Bank of Canada.

"We think this gives the issue real muscle," Mr. Wilkerson said yesterday.
