Around 45 interested Truth-seekers also attended the programme; most of them entering the portals of the sacred Dhyana Mandir for the first time. They were warmly invited and welcomed by the Kendra volunteers.
Swamiji started with a prayer and went on to explain the posture, guided the congregation through a period of meditation, demonstrated some visualization exercises and followed by a healing technique. He explained the importance of being a yogi. Information was also given about Yogoda Satsanga Lessons.
All those who attended the session were inspired, and felt empowered and blessed by Swamiji’s guidance.
