The Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) Melbourne branch held a special event called ‘Vilakshan Yoga and Meditation Session’ at Melton Community Hall, Victoria, Australia. This event was part of their “Arogya” health initiative and was organised to celebrate the 10th International Yoga Day.

The event on Sunday took place under the guidance of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj, the founder and head of DJJS. It was also supported by the Consulate General of India in Melbourne along with various sponsors and community supporters.

Speaking at the event, Yogacharya Swami Dr. Sarveshwar, a disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, explained that Maharishi Patanjali created the Yoga Sutras to help people keep their bodies and minds healthy through yoga. He emphasised that regular yoga practice can prevent illness and solve both physical and mental problems.

During the event, Swami taught simple but effective yoga poses such as Tadasana, Vrikshasana, Virabhadrasana, and Tulasana. He also provided tips to help attendees manage health issues like back pain, diabetes, hernia, migraines, and headaches.

Several notable personalities attended the event, including Steve McGhee, Member of Parliament Victorian Legislative Assembly, Melton. Joe McCracken, Member of Victorian Legislative Council, Western Victoria, Sushil Kumar, Consulate General of India, Melbourne, Victoria, amongst others.

The event successfully promoted the benefits of yoga and encouraged the community to embrace a healthier lifestyle.
