In a resplendent ceremony in Mumbai, the IHW Council, India’s premier think-tank for preventive and promotive health, today launched its unique initiative, Spirituality for Health & Environment Alliance (SHE-Alliance), that aims to make women of society take lead on health transformation of families and the environment, thus helping a healthier, happier world for all.
The SHE Alliance focuses on building a robust network of women dedicated to the cause of promoting Life, a concept promulgated by the Honourable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, exhorting the world community to adopt a lifestyle for the environment and health. The SHE Alliance will focus on empowering and educating women to meaningfully contribute to disease prevention and environmental promotion across the nooks and corners of the country, with over 300 cities being targeted in the first leg of the mission in its commencement year.
The mission was ceremoniously flagged off by the Honourable Governor of Gujarat, Shri Acharya Devvrat, at the Mumbai Life Yatra Conclave in the presence of several medical experts, spiritual leaders, social workers, environmentalists, celebrities, and influencers.
While speaking on the occasion, Shri Acharya Devvrat, Hon’ble Governor of Gujarat, congratulated the IHW Council for the unique concept of SHE that caters to the service of mankind and said that he is hopeful that the initiative will be a grand success and contribute to nation-building. He further added, “We need to understand the science behind spirituality and free it from religious rituals. Spirituality makes you realize your universal connectedness and responsibility towards your body and the environment. We need to revive our Vedic knowledge for natural and conscious living; that alone will help us optimize our potential to build a great society and a happier world for all.”
Commemorating this special launch, Mr. Kamal Narayan, CEO of the IHW Council, averred, “Spirituality is often viewed as a concept opposite to science, but the two are deeply interconnected. By understanding this connection, we can harness the power of spirituality to create a more sustainable and healthier world. The SHE Alliance will attempt to popularise the way science considers spirituality as an important means to achieve human progress, health, and prosperity in a thought-provoking manner.”
Shri Kishore Kumar Mohatta, Founder, Bhakti Sagar Channel, who is also the conveyor of the SHE Alliance, thanked the partners for their support and said that the SHE Alliance will continue to evolve and work towards creating a better country for all by creating awareness about traditional ways of living in harmony with nature and the environment.
The event witnessed motivational leaders, leading doctors, social workers, and entrepreneurs on a single platform to motivate and encourage people to take care of their health and environment, achieved through the science of spirituality.
Shri Hanmantrao Gaikwad, Chairman & MD, BVG Group, and patron of the SHE Alliance, highlighted the role of SHE in creating nationwide awareness around the two most fundamental aspects of life, which are the health of people and the planet. He reiterated that ancient Indian knowledge of Ayurveda needs to be looked at scientifically and promoted with evidence-based medicines and treatment methods around it.
