The one-day-event „Day of Non-Violence for World Peace“ that took place on Saturday, October the 2nd on the UN International Day of Peace was the highlight of the yoga retreat organized from September 24 till October 3 in the historical town of Umag, Croatia.
Founder of Yoga in Daily Life, HH Vishwaguru Mahamandaleshwar Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda was invited to give a keynote address at the Hindu Convocation of Spiritual Leaders, a gathering of most eminent Swamis and Hindu scholars from all over the world. HH Swamiji said: “If we want harmony and peace in our world, it is up to each individual to act at the grassroots level. Each life is the light of God, and awareness of this fact only comes when there is a clear consciousness, which can be achieved through the practice of mantras, prayers, yoga and following the principle of Ahimsa. It depends on us. We can make a difference.”
