International Yoga Festival 2018 Rishikesh
International Yoga festival is back. This year it will be celebrated with much fanfare from March 1-7 2018 at Parmarth Niketan Ashram, Rishikesh. It is attended by people from all over the globe, who wish to learn Yoga and get benefits from it.
Yoga is more than just physical exercise. Yoga is a systematic system of spiritual practices that bring you closer towards your soul or inner self. Yoga literally means, ‘Union’ in Sanskrit, and aims to unite one’s body and mind with his spirit. It was propounded by ancient Indian sage Patanjali, who through several years of sadhana, founded this amazing system. Yoga has been transforming lives ever since and helping people live better and healthier.
Here are top 10 reasons why You Must Attend Yoga International Festival 2018:
Learn from Top Indian Yoga Gurus: Top Indian Yoga gurus will be present and sharing their yogic wisdom with the people at this International Yoga Festival 2018. You will get a chance to meet a number of spiritual gurus or masters at one place. You will also get an opportunity to meet like-minded people to enhance your knowledge as well as experience.
Yoga for All: Yoga is not just about Asanas or body postures. Yoga is meant to transform your lives through intense spiritual practice and sadhana. It is a spiritual journey that aims to connect you with your soul. We, as individuals, must strive to understand our true nature and realize our true spirit. Hence, Yoga is a must for all. Yoga is for everyone and goes beyond caste, creed, gender, location etc.
It’s happening in Rishikesh: The mere fact that it’s happening in the holy city Rishikesh is enough reason for attending the international Yoga Festival 2018. Rishikesh has been home to ancient rishis and sages, who chose this place for their intense sadhana and spiritual practice. Rishikesh is a spiritual mecca, and houses hundreds of Ashrams or spiritual centres, buzzing with spirituality and mysticism. Morning and evening temple bells and holy chants are a common practice in the holy town.
Holy River Ganges: the Ganges is considered quite sacred in Hindu culture. It is more than just a river. It is worshipped like a mother that nurtures and cares for its children. Parmarth Niketan organizes the famous evening Arti, with singing and kirtans, to revere mother Ganga, and offer prayers to her. It is quite a treat to attend the evening Arti that fills your heart with joy and divine bliss.
Realize Your True Self: Most of us waste our lives desiring for material objects and worldly attachments, however, they are all perishable and have a shelf life. Even our physical bodies have a life. Once we complete our lifetime, we die and leave every worldly object behind. Yoga helps you to understand the impermanence of the worldly things and connect with the eternal, divine energy that resides in all of us. Once we realize our true nature, we become liberated, which is the ultimate goal of every human on earth.
