1st United Nations International Yoga Day – 21 June 2015

Dear Friends,

The UN passed a resolution on 11 December 2014 to establish 21 June as International Yoga Day.

Yoga brings harmony, health and wellbeing. In its core it is spiritual and Patanjali, the ‘Father of Yoga’, laid out in his sutras the 8 steps from the yamas & niyamas (ethical precepts) to its final goal of realising the Supreme Consciousness.

Yoga is used for health improvement, disease prevention and spiritual development. Yoga postures and pranayama (breathing techniques) improve the body’s health. Pranayama and meditation act upon the subtle bodies. The mind becomes calm, the nervous system is strengthened, energy levels are increased manifold. Mantras and Meditation increase the influx of positive energy. Meditation can bring about the state of total peace and silence. Individual and group meditation has a beneficial effect of harmony and peace throughout society, nature and the world.

Swami is the Honorary Advisor to the World Yoga Foundation for the next 5 years, see link below. He would like everyone to honour and celebrate the UN Yoga Day by practising some yoga, pranayama, meditation, mantras and engage in some spiritual reading. You can practise by yourself, or with friends and family or fellow yoga enthusiasts.

The Atmachaithanya Charitable Trust celebrates the day with a free event from 3.30-6pm at 23 Parbury Road, SE23 1NZ. To participate you need to book today (Saturday) with

Yours in health and peace!

Om Namah Shivaya
