Ancient Wisdom In Modern Living

06/12/2019
History brims with facts, figures, and fiction that in one way or another speak of an ideal way to live. Through the ages, someone or the other claim to have cracked the lifestyle dogma. Some focus on the mental state, some on diet, and others on myriad aspects of living. It is impossible to precisely identify specific aspects that uplift one’s life, especially due to the fact that life and its range of complications and pleasures change as years go by. Many tenets of living from yesteryears may not even make sense in the context of today. That said, some of this wisdom holds water as well today as it did on the day it was thought up.

Contemporary life brings to us equal parts of conveniences and conundrums. For every comfort and luxury prepare to experience an instance of turmoil and complexity that brings modern life into a state of cruel equilibrium. With teachings of the past ages, we can hope to navigate through these unannounced vicissitudes of life to create a life worth living. Every piece of human knowledge holds vital truths that in some shape or form apply to different stages of time. Today, we can find great solace in everyday life through the timeless Vedas.

The Vedas are a profound collection of scriptures that speak of every facet of life and the optimal way to act through them. Within them lie many answers that can greatly aid us to traverse the mires of existence. For instance, Purnatva (the philosophy of completeness) propounds the importance of attaining fulfilment by striking the right balance in the most vital areas of one’s life. Another spiritual principle states that one can only find true fulfilment when one has control over one’s emotions.

Ancient wisdom is boundless and exists to ease the burdens of its future generations. The contemporary world is an endless ocean of distractions in the hope of finding respite from monotony or daily troubles. We spend time on these trivial pursuits and lament the lack of time to engage in those activities that may actually bring us peace and solace. For every endeavour, be it work, play, study, or relationships, we needn’t look anywhere but in the past for answers. If we succeed in bridging the chasm between the learnings of the past and the actions of the present, our journey to fulfilment in modern times ceases to be a just another fantasy.

The Perfect Work-Life Equilibrium Ever Attained

28/11/2019

Over the ages, the word ‘work’ has become synonymous with a monotonous 9-to-5 schedule. This unfavourable perception towards office-life has grown with the passing eras that changed concepts and ideologies in accordance with the prevalent global trend. Since the industrial era, the phrase ‘work-life balance’ was unheard of. Then in the era of baby boomers (those born in the 1940s to 1960s), the daily eight-hour grind was an expected part of life. Today, all such norms and conventions are being broken on a daily basis in an attempt to create a world of individualistic self-governance.

So, the fundamental question that has harrowed every working professional over the years is - what exactly is work-life balance? Does work-life balance stop at giving equal importance to both work life and personal life? Perhaps it only starts there. The end goal of work-life balance isn’t about finding only balance. It’s about finding fulfilment. Ergo, the much-hyped balance is only the means and not the end.

While 9-to-5 office workers still exist, for the most part, an increasing number of professionals are eschewing the conventional work dynamic to engage with work on their own terms, timelines, and turfs. As lives get busier and hassled, striking a balance between work and other aspects of life becomes an arduous task in itself. Since the days of the Vedas, enlightened sages and free thinkers have constantly stressed the importance of bringing balance to every aspect of one’s life. In order to feel a semblance of fulfilment, the average person faces an uphill task of assigning adequate time and energy to nurture their social life, leisure activities, and other pursuits that lead to a truly content life.

Working from home is only one way to help cultivate a lifestyle that leads to contentment, but it is a drop in the ocean compared to all the lifestyle elements constituting a fulfilling life. Much is influenced by one’s home, for its positives and negatives inevitably shape one’s way of living. Imagine a concept of living that comes with space dedicated for work, adorned with functional and aesthetic elements that enhance productivity. Not to mention a concierge service to address every whim, both work-related or otherwise, that makes your daily routine a lot more pleasant. In a community equipped with spaces, features, and amenities that make an uneventful day seem like one straight out of a fairy tale, attaining the perfect balance seems a lot more plausible. Svasa Homes is a living experience designed for a lifestyle that not only puts the problem of work-life balance to rest but brings utmost equilibrium to every single aspect of living.

How Impactful Residential Communities Can Change The World

20/11/2019
A community can be many things. In the original context, it refers to a collection of individuals and families living in a specific space or geographic region. In the truest sense, a community not only includes families within a living space but entire villages and towns. It flourishes through the strength of its members, their activities, traditions, and ideals. The collective actions and thoughts of its members defined the community’s identity. By their very nature, humans thrive only when they are active members of a living ecosystem where others work for the betterment of one another and thereby the community as a whole.

A member, when part of a community, is greatly influenced by the perceptions, actions, and ideas of others. They inspire and influence one another to do great things. When one is actively involved in a close-knit community, it is hard not to be influenced by the actions and achievements of your fellow residents, especially when their doings create profound impact in society. Greatness inspires greatness, and it is all the truer when you live in a community brimming with extraordinary personas.

Today, residential communities are microcosms with the potential to create an impact on a global level. Nothing is truer when speaking of the Svasa Homes community, where literally every member is a powerhouse of immense knowledge, ability, and connections. With a collective so impactful, there is no hurdle or dilemma that cannot be overcome. Of course, there exist similar communities across the world and likely the same potential for groundbreaking change. Countries can be saved from hunger, children everywhere can access quality education, global warming may become a distant memory, economies can flourish, the possibilities are endless. Harnessing the full capabilities of a truly impactful residential community can lead to the world becoming a much better place.
