Yoga in Service at Parmarth
A group of twenty young students from America joined their Parmarth family to spend their days doing service projects at the ashram. They took part in morning and evening Yoga Kriya, Pranayama, Asana classes and continued the rest of their day with Yoga off the mat.
After spending their first day at the Parmarth Gaushala in Kunao and planting trees, they continued to clean up the surroundings by joining volunteers and Parmarth Gurukul Rishikumars to pick up all the litter and trash left behind by pilgrims. They learned that Parmarth has been continuously involved in improving its solid waste management programme and hopes to see more sustainable changes soon.They learned more about the great service projects that are thriving under Pujya Swamiji’s divine vision and leadership from Swamini Adityananda Saraswatiji, and they participated in a special meditation session with her.
They enjoyed the evening sacred havan and Ganga Aarti programme during their stay and planted more fruit-giving trees in Parmarth’s organic garden, the Veerpur Vatika.
The students felt deeply inspired and are charged to return back to their Himalayan home in Rishikesh soon.
