Peace is the intersection where human health, environmental well-being, and kinship meet. This event will highlight the role of yoga as a universal world culture in fostering inner peace, environmental stewardship, and fellowship among humans of all nations, races, and cultures.

Foundational to the practice of yoga, inner peace, and world peace is ahimsa - non-violence. Ahimsa paramo dharma is the eternal truth that the purpose of human life is to protect, serve, respect and love all humans, all creatures, and all life on this planet.

This event will feature keynote speaker, Vishwaguruji Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda , who has dedicated his life to the teaching of ahimsa paramo dharma and its role in fostering a culture of peace on Earth.
