Lanham, Maryland: A two-day course on life transformation with Swami Mukundananda, a spiritual leader and founder of JKYog, was held May 19-20 at Sri Siva Vishnu Temple in Lanham, Maryland.

More than 150 people from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Delaware benefited from the course, which included classes on yoga, meditation, and discourse on the Science of Happiness by Swamiji, an international authority on mind management.

Asked about the JKYog program, Swamiji told News India Times “JKYog has been established to help humankind achieve holistic health, in all dimensions of their personality — physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual. For that we teach a variety of sciences, which are included in the system called the JKYog system, also known as yoga for the body, mind, and soul. This includes a deep healing technique called subtle body relaxation, and meditation technique called Roop Dhyan meditation, the science of heathy diet, and physical postures or yoga asanas and breathing techniques or pranayama.”

He also informed “we also organize one of the biggest yoga festivals in the world, which will be held from June 14-20, at the Radha Krishna temple of Dallas, headquarters of JKYog.”

While attendees were performing yoga, Swamiji gently explained the importance of building immunity. He said, “even though you’ve got vaccinated and you’ve got boosters, the virus keeps on changing. So, it’s important to keep your immunity up. If you have the body vitality the immunity is stronger. If you are stressed, then the immunity goes down. When you’re stressed your antibody response is less, so you become more susceptible to cold and flu.”

In order to build immunity, he recommended regular consumption of turmeric, ginger, black pepper, and tulsi leaves. He also recommended consuming antioxidants such as Indian noni, Korean ginseng, ayurvedic green tea, and Chinese herbal tea along with dark fruits especially blueberries. At the same time, he informed attendees about getting antioxidants naturally as well. “The pranayama is another great way of naturally getting antioxidants for the body. Doing pranayama, yoga asana, eating healthy diet, and keeping your mind managed through meditation will naturally enhance your immunity.”

Swapna Hari, JKYog coordinator in Maryland, who has personally benefited from Swamiji’s programs for over a decade, told News India Times, “we are happy that he was able to visit Maryland and to teach the community the art of holistic science, which will help them to be physically fit and mentally happier. During the two-day course, he taught meditation techniques, subtle body relaxation, and the science of healthy diet. He also gave discourse on the topic of science of happiness.”

Swami is a visionary and has more than 5 million followers on social media. He has established a variety of free online courses that are serving the global community for many years now. He has established the Radha Krishna temple in Allen, Texas, and another Radha Krishna temple in the Bay area is being planned. On June 15, 2019, Bollywood actress Sanya Malhotra, joined hands with Swamiji to promote yoga and they both had an open dialogue about yoga and holistic wellness at Dallas Yoga Fest, in Allen, Texas.

Dr. Arun Bhandari, a practicing Oncologist and Hematologist, who was appointed to the Maryland Health Care Commission in 2020 by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, along with his wife Vandana Bhandari, and Subramanian Muniasamy, Executive Deputy Director of MD THINK were present at the event and honored Swamiji.
