Birthday celebrations for Vishwaguruji – founder of Yoga in Daily Life

 jubilee book cover

The International Sri Deep Madhavananda Ashram Fellowship and Sri Swami Madhavananda World Peace Council, on behalf of all disciples and friends of Yoga in Daily Life, and on this beautiful occasion of Vishwaguruji’s birthday (19.08.2023 according to the Vedic lunar calendar), are very happy to announce Golden Jubilee, a new publication that contributes to the celebration of Vishwaguruji’s half century of selfless service and the unshakeable commitment he delivers daily through personal encounters and Yoga in Daily Life initiatives.

In the early 1970’s, with his profound spiritual insights, and fuelled by love in his heart, Vishwaguruji came to Europe and started to spread the eternal wisdom of the holy books and saints, and the path of Yoga among Westerners.

His personal journey is written in the numerous hearts of people whose lives have been touched and transformed through personal encounters with him, or by listening to and reflecting on his simple yet powerful teachings. It is woven into the positive daily changes of countless people practising Yoga in Daily Life around the globe, as well as in actions and projects initiated directly by Yoga in Daily Life centres and other inspired organisations.

During his 50 years of service to the world, there was no obstacle which could have extinguished his burning desire to share with others the beauty of Self-realisation as the reawakening of Inner Knowledge. And the rest is history...

Dear Vishwaguruji, this book just chronicles a fraction of your life and work, but it gives us a glimpse of what a supreme master of modern times you are.

We thank you, Vishwaguruji, for these 50 years of your selfless service of all mankind. Yoga in Daily Life brothers and sisters feel honoured to be able to be in Your presence and to serve You.

Sri Deep Narayan Bhagwan Ki Jay!
