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
- 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
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

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
- 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

A HEAVY TOLL ON HUMAN WELL-BEING
says World's Corporate Leaders
By VIRGINIA GALT
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
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
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
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.
