It is commonly observed that activities related to religion, culture, social gatherings, sports, music, art and group activities can be useful in relieving stress and gaining a progressive mood. It provides inspiration to form positive directives which in due course manifests as positive schemas. A set of good schemas can collectively form good mental representations about personal identity, cognition and positive outlook towards life. We organize various activities under "Positive Diversions" which aids people to cherish their life and also to resolve any unwanted thoughts/events. We elucidate the importance of a clear mind, and its qualities of non-violence, compassion and love. Besides creating awareness of these noble qualities, we work for peace and human rights of all peoples, through meditation.
