A yogi based in Mumbai has offered Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and other Hollywood celebrities his help in de-addiction and other health issues, including terminal illnesses, without any drugs or fees.
Vir Balahara, who is reverently known as "Virjee", is not your ordinary yogi. He retired as Director General of Income Tax of India. Atheist most of his earlier life, he found inner-light when he was around 40 and started exploring it further. After his about 23 years of self-exploration, he felt ready to take his mission and "new awareness" globally to help the sick.
Balahara has studied health issues of Hollywood celebrities and says that he can treat drug-alcohol-smoking addictions, emotional and physical breakdowns, weight and diet related problems, ageing related complaints, etc.; and can help them achieve their anti-ageing and fitness goals. He does not charge any fees for his treatment as he believes in "selfless action" advocated by ancient Sanskrit scripture Bhagavad-Gita.
"Virjee" has thrown an open invitation to Lohan, Hilton and other Hollywood celebrities to visit him in Mumbai and promises that they will return to Hollywood healthy and vibrant. Although his technique is complex, but in simpler terms it seems to be based around pranayam (exercising control over the process of breathing). He feels that some hidden force is leading him by holding his hand. At 63, Balahara runs about 15 kilometers a day and calls it "meditation par excellence" and claims that he has more "strength, stamina, positivity and enthusiasm" ow than he had when he was 40 when his inner journey began.
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, applauded Balahara for his selfless project to bring happiness back on the faces of sick. It was highly commendable that somebody like Balahara was willing to share his wisdom gathered after grueling hours of meditation and self-exploration for over two decades and without any mercantile greed, Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, added.
"It was mostly journey within", Balahara tells about his "new awareness" experience. Although the exploration continues, but he feels that it is time now to bless others with the energy and transfer some of his light to them. His treatment changes the participant as a whole-physically, mentally, and spiritually. Why is he focusing on Hollywood celebrities-because they bring smile on the faces of the people worldwide, he wants to bring smile back on their faces.
According to Balahara, death (barring accidental cases) does not come until we give up and ask for it.
