As the world rejoices 5th ‘International Day of Yoga’ 2019, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) under its holistic health program-‘Aarogya’ undertakes massive yoga drive to celebrate this historical day by organizing various ‘Vilakshan Yog Shivirs’ marking Climate Action (UN theme) across its network of Centers.
Under the divine guidance of the founder and head of the organization His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, DJJS through ‘Vilakshan Yog Shivirs’ has been promoting Yoga as an intangible cultural heritage of India since decades. These yoga camps have become a benchmark to create awareness and encourage practice of Yogasanas, Yogic Kriyas and Pranayama & Meditation. International Day of Yoga (IDY) is more of a proud moment than a welcome move for millions associated with Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, who have been initiated into the higher limbs of Yoga by the divine grace of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji with the eternal science of Self Realization- ‘Brahm Gyan’. Yoga therefore is not a mere subject or a concept but a culture for these regular practitioners of Dhyana (Meditation) in DJJS.
An unprecedented number of yoga enthusiasts & laypersons alike of all ages and from every walk of life took part with great zeal and enthusiasm in these ‘Vilakshan Yog shivirs’ to mark their CIMATE ACTION for IDY 2019. In these Yoga camps, all participants together performed various Asanas (physical exercises) and Pranayama (breathing exercises) for better health and well-being; followed by a Talk on ‘Yoga & Spirituality’ by DJJS’s Preacher and Samuhik Dhyana (Group Meditation) to harness spiritual potential. The session ends with Om chanting and recitation of mantras such as ‘Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah’ and ‘Shanti Paath’ (Peace Prayers) seeking health, peace and harmony for all. In addition, to mark ‘Climate Action’, these Yog Shivirs created awareness amongst participants by addressing the issues of Clean Environment and Climate Change through Skits, Talks & Power point presentation and Tree Plantation.
Living the philosophy of union of individual Consciousness with the universal Consciousness through the Vedic principle – ‘Swasmin Tishthati Iti Swasthah’; DJJS ‘Aarogya’ believes in perfect harmony between mind, body and soul as the definition of complete health and well-being of an individual. DJJS is a socio-spiritual organization working globally for the establishment of universal brotherhood and peace through nine-dimensional social reforms and welfare programs, focused on issues like gender, education, community health, drug abuse eradication, environment conservation, Indian cow breed improvement and conservation, disaster management and empowerment of disabled and prisoners, along with workshops for corporate sector and youth.
