Anantnag: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha paid obeisance to Swami Ashokanandaji, the founder of Shri Ramkrishna Mahasammelan Ashram, Nagdandi, Achabal, Anantnag today, an official press release informed.

Swami Ashokananda’s life and teachings continue to guide our society and inspire us to work for spiritual and social upliftment, the LG said.

At Shri Ramkrishna Mahasammelan Ashram, the LG Governor addressed the participants of Yoga Shiksha Shivir who are visiting the Ashram from various states and UTs. He called upon the people to embrace Yoga for a healthy life.

“Yoga reduces the stress level and teaches us to live in the present moment, it inspires us to nurture the values espoused by sacred scriptures, to walk the righteous path and it opens the door of peace, mindfulness, physical and mental strength,” the LG said. 

He said, “Due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Yoga has become a mass movement for a healthy society.”

“Yoga belongs to the whole world and indeed to all of mankind. Yoga as a science creates unity between body and mind, between people, regions and the countries so that we remain healthy, and happy and contribute to the growth and welfare of the entire humanity,” the LG observed.

The LG congratulated everyone associated with Shri Ramkrishna Mahasammelan Ashram and commended their efforts in the service of society and our great nation.

“Selfless service strengthens the spirit of unity in diversity. Our endeavour must be to meet the twin goals of spiritual and socio-economic upliftment. We are at the threshold of a future in which learning and meditation centres can train, guide and leverage our strong human resource base to build Aatm-Nirbhar Bharat,” the LG said.
