Abstract

“The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul creates the symphony of life”. B.K.S. Iyengar, a foremost Yoga teacher from India correlated the symphony of life with a balance of body, mind and soul in such a way that it answers most of the questions by people suffering from stressful lives. It must be understood that according to WHO constitution, health is defined as a complete well-being of mental, physical and social aspects of a person, not the absence of disability or disease. Not to forget that the aspect of soul is generally not considered in scientific world, this article steps forward initialising the understanding of soul as an integral part of human body in terms of philosophy as well as science. Considering the aspect of health sciences; a mind fully synchronised with the body and soul is a sign of having a greater intelligence than IQ and EQ as a mind convinced with current conditions of body and soul will be able to boost up the usage of intellect and wisdom in order to achieve greater and much effective results in terms of creativity, health and spiritual growth. One of the best ways adopted by greats of their time to achieve harmony is through meditation.
