 Under the divine guidance of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj ji, DJJS through ‘Vilakshan Yog Shivir’ has been promoting Yoga as an intangible cultural heritage of India. Yoga embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness within yourself, the world and the nature. According to ancient Vedic Calendar, the Summer Solstice (June 21st) marks the transition of Sun from Uttarayana to Dakshinayana, the longest day of the calendar year.
