Vishwaguruji in New Zealand, Fiji and Australia, 26 Sept – 25 Oct 2016
Topic of the 2016 World Tour was 'Yoga for the Body & Beyond'
From city to city, Vishwaguruji explained profound and fundamental principles of Yoga:
"Yoga is not just a collection of exercises, but a way of connecting body and mind; and also connecting to our ancient past. The history of yoga is far more ancient and stems from the beginning of time."
"Yoga starts with discipline. Don’t wait to act tomorrow or later. If it’s important to you, then do it now. Lead a disciplined life - no matter what religion you follow or which God you pray to. Discipline is what is required to succeed in one's life."
"AUM – scientists have discovered that the sound vibration of our sun is AUM. The resonance of this mantra is very powerful. You shall experience it for yourself in your own meditation practice."
