Centennial Celebration Public Programs
We are happy to inform you that on the occasion of the Centennial Celebration, the Sector has organized several online programs for the public. Last year, 2021, there were three main programs. The Health and Wellness Symposium on July 2021 was organized with the help of the World Yoga Community and other organizations, along with United Nations delegates. The conference’s theme was health and wellness and the sustainable agenda of the United Nations. At that symposium, Ananda Marga senior Acaryas, doctors, and scientists presented before several delegates and the public. More than ten non-profit and civil organizations, religious organizations, and New York City administration representatives were present. Other people also participated in the program.
The program left a good impression on the UN delegates and the yoga communities. They were so inspired and satisfied with the teachings of Baba, Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on health and wellness, and the Acaryas dedication and selfless service through the local community and internationally.
International Day of Yoga
Every year, the Sector actively participates in the International Day of Yoga. In 2021, Ananda Marga organized online and offline programs. Ananda Marga is very active in New York, conducting the International Yoga Day in different yoga and meditation centers all over the US, Canada, and other countries. Everybody appreciated the presentations by various doctors and Acaryas and guest speakers during these programs supported by the United Nations and the Consulate of India in New York.
The highlights of the programs were: Yama and Niyama and the value of life, the psychology of yoga, meditation, and specific yoga postures.
The guest of the Consulate and the president of the World Yoga Community appreciated the understanding of the founder of Ananda Marga, Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji, who has given a completely new vista in the teaching of yoga and meditation: emotional balance and spiritual progress, and intuitional development of the human being.
Ananda Marga promotes a holistic way of life and the comprehensive well-being of society. The Ananda Margiis, civil society and other non-profit and religious organizations, Government, and the corporate world greatly appreciated those online events.
I am very thankful to all brothers and sisters, acaryas, and Margiis of the New York Sector who have been taking the pain and sincere effort to materialize the best programs for the public and the Ananda Marga society.
All the best, and I am looking forward to seeing you this year’s International Yoga Day!
