Message from Dr Kataria on World Laughter Day

My Dear Laughter Friends,

World Laughter Day is customarily celebrated on the first Sunday of May every year. This
year on 1st of May, thousands of people in more than 70 countries will laugh together
to
promote peace and harmony in the midst of natural disasters, global unrest, violence and
terrorism, all of which has disrupted the tranquility of our planet – mother earth.

It is also a day committed to spread the message of good health and joy through laughter.
Every year millions of dollars are being spent on maintaining health as stress levels are
steadily increasing and the cost of health care has become a great concern for people at
large and governments all over the world. Laughter Yoga has already proved to be a cost
effective and very powerful tool for maintaining physical and mental wellbeing and people
can feel the benefits from the very first session.

This day is a celebration of the power of laughter to change the world. On this auspicious
occasion, I appeal to the whole of humanity to use Laughter Yoga as a means to generate
goodwill, and also to lessen the pain caused by human insensitivity, as well as natural
calamities, both of which have catastrophic consequences. While Laughter Yoga exercises
will bring good health and well being; the inner spirit of laughter will help us to realize
he deeper meaning of life. By understanding the ways and means of sensible living through
Laughter Clubs we can bring peace within us, which in turn will bring peace in the outer
world.

We all are one, whether we live in the east or west. We are interconnected, and cannot
ignore nations which are poor and underdeveloped because their wellbeing affects the rich
nations equally and has global consequences. For instance, ecological imbalance occurring
in any nation, spread of infectious diseases, conflict and aggression are all results of
inequality and discrimination. Therefore, unless we feel the oneness and learn to care for
each other as a global family we cannot live in harmony. I believe that: "The Entire World Is
An Extended Family; Let Us Join Through Love And Laughter"

So, let us stand in silence for 1 minute by spreading our arms towards the sky, and pray
silently for World Peace. Let us end with unconditional laughter and send out the vibrations
of harmony and compassion all over the world and into the Universe…ha ha ha.
