Volunteer teaches positive attitude

SHE'S in Fiji for the first time yet she's already planning a return trip.

Aashima Narula, a volunteer at the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University, came to Fiji after visiting Australia.

"I had heard about Fiji and its natural beauty," she said.

"So, when I had the chance to visit, I jumped at the opportunity."

Ms Narula is a volunteer with a university that focuses on people learning more about themselves and how they can change their attitude and mind-set to live in a violence-free world and know more about the "supreme light" — God.

"At the university, we allow people to come and learn more about themselves and the power of the mind," she said.

"We believe every human being is good and the negative thoughts that enter their mind are like an uninvited guest.

"Every human body has a beam of light.

"And when we are connected with the creator of light, which is God who is not human like us, only then are we able to rise above racial discrimination and the problems that this world is faced with."

The university's Fiji centre is located on Moti St and offers free courses in meditation, stress management and positive thinking.

The centre is known as the Raja Yoga Centre.

She said people who attended the courses were more relaxed and had stability and clarity of mind which included inner peace.
