All the yoga lovers, it is time to roll up your mats and start scheduling your ideal yoga retreat in the lap of nature. Sushant Singh Rajput, leading Bollywood star had a chance to visit the Yogoda Satsanga Society of India, a place that has been on his wish list for quite some time.
This place will make you reconnect with your inner self and churn the positive energy that would relax your mind and body. Sushant was humbled by the experience and witnessed an incredible combination of spirituality and tranquillity at the ashram. The upkeep of the premises and hospitality of the people speaks volumes about the place.
Appreciating the panoramic beauty and cordial hospitality of the hosts, Sushant adds, “This opportunity to go there today has come after a long time and I am overwhelmed by the place; compassion, nature, love, peace, learnings & responsibilities, yoga, karma, science, life, divinity! I learned a few very important lessons and I am so deeply grateful".
Yogananda’s story is an inspiring lesson for all. Many great men for the quest for higher consciousness and inner transformation turned to Yogananda. To name a few, Steve jobs, George Eastman, founder of Kodak, the tenor Vladimir Rosing, the plant scientist Luther Burbank, George Harrison, Henry Ford and Mahatma Gandhi.
He inspired 21st-century psychologists, psychotherapists, physicians and neuroscientists to generate powerful scientific findings on human behaviour - all aligned with his spiritual teachings.
His book “an autobiography of a Yogi” was an amazing confluence of physics, philosophy and psychology. Yogananda’s teaching of universal consciousness was a silent force in the life of Steve Jobs, one of the greatest entrepreneurs of all times. He discovered the book at the tender age of 16 and read it every single year until he passed away. After his demise, the book was gifted to everyone who attended his last riots.
Albert Einstein, widely known as the pre-eminent scientist of the modern era during the last few decades of his life, persistently pursued a “theory of everything” which explains the workings of the universe. Paramahansa Yogananda has applauded his efforts in his book and has mentioned that his theory was, in essence, an attempt to explain all creation as Maya- a delusion.
Paramahansa’s contribution is manifold. His teachings of kriya yoga, is universal and accessible to all, regardless of race, culture, faiths, beliefs, and rituals. The impact of his life and work continues to grow. The concepts and methods announced by him through his prolific writings are now finding expression in science, education, psychology, business and other spheres of human life.
The society defines one of their aims as - 'To disseminate among the nations a knowledge of definite scientific techniques for attaining the direct personal experience of God. Sushant chose this place to unwind and yet remained close to his first love, science.
Yogoda Satsanga Society of India has been attracting visitors from around the world. If you are looking for a therapeutic experience, it is a perfect place for stress reduction, self-discovery and an escape from hustle and bustle of city lifestyle.
