We hereby quote an article on the pharmaceutical industry which is the highest revenue generator in the world.
As per By Richard AndersonBusiness reporter, BBC News
“Imagine an industry that generates higher profit margins than any other and is no stranger to multi-billion dollar fines for malpractice.
Throw in widespread accusations of collusion and over-charging, and banking no doubt springs to mind.
In fact, the industry described above is responsible for the development of medicines to save lives and alleviate suffering, not the generation of profit for its own sake.
Pharmaceutical companies have developed the vast majority of medicines known to humankind, but they have profited handsomely from doing so, and not always by legitimate means.”
And this industry is growing exponentially .
In contrast yoga which has tremendous therapeutic benefit, which the modern world has realized comes at a much economical price.
In yoga, we believe that the body heals by itself and tries to achieve homeostasis. All it needs is the right postures, cleansing techniques, harmonious flow of prana and slowing down the mind, since all diseases are psychosomatic. Due to stress, modern lifestyle, bad eating habits and chemical bombardment (excess intake of medicines), we have brought down the inner natural immunity of our body. As a result the flow of prana , no more moves in the stipulated direction in the respected nadis. The manomaya kosha stays in turbulent state and the blissful sheath is never activated.
