New Delhi - Yoga, meditation, natural healing - you may have experienced it all. Now you have another option as a new form of relaxation technique promises to check the rampaging stress level among the urban population.

Based on the lifestyle practices of three primitive tribes in Orissa, Ahemadabad based meditation expert Murli Menon claims to have come up with a new way of dealing with stress.

"There are several primitive tribes in India, who live in close proximity with nature. Their unique lifestyle practices can be inspiration to the urban folks to effectively deal with stress. My method seeks to provide relief to the urban folks utilising the knowledge of the tribes that they have gained over centuries through close affiliation with nature", he says.

However, experts wonder as to how far the techniques of the tribals could be applicable to alltogether different lives of the urbanites.

The new 'relaxation method' is the result of research, Menon says. The research covered the Kadia, Mankadia and Kohl tribes of Orissa. All these tribes live in the protected forest areas in Mayurbhanj district of the state.

"People usually have the notion that the tribal people have a very simple life and they do not have any stress in life. Contrary to that, their life is full of challenges and stressful situations. But they have their own ways of handling the stress", says Menon.

After observing the lives of the three tribes closely for nine years, Menon has come up with a complete 'package', which he thinks will be able to deal with stress. PTI
