To mark the 75th anniversary of India's independence, the Embassy of India in Vienna organised a celebration and cultural program at the Grand Hall of the University of Vienna, to which Vishwaguru Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda was invited with some of his Yoga in Daily Life students.
Vishwaguruji was greeted and welcomed by the Indian Ambassador to Austria and Montenegro, His Excellency Jaideep Mazumdar and his wife Srimati Parvati.
The cultural program included colourful performances of the Indian classical Bharatnatyam dance by Bhakti Devi, as well as by dance students of the Natya Mandir organisation, and traditional Indian classical music with a soulful sitar performance by Mr. Alokesh Chandra and his students, and a tabla, harmonium, flute and vocal performance by Mr. Haider Khan with his students.
The program, which enthralled the audience in the packed hall, was attended by local dignitaries, the diplomatic community and members of the Indian diaspora.
