Yog Kumbh: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev holds camp at Kumbh Mela
Yoga guru Baba Ramdev led a morning yoga session on the banks of the Sangam with Swami Chidanand Saraswati of Parmarth Niketan on the third day of the week-long Yog Kumbh during the Kumbh mela in Prayagraj. Both the ascetics spoke to the devotees who gathered there.
Baba Ramdev said, “The churning of the ocean is within you. The whole universe is within you. This is the nature of existence. Witness the whole universe and choose whether you want poison or the nectar. Yoga brings the nectar in life. On this Mauni Amavasya, let us all take a bath in this Yoga Sangam.” He also invited participants to come forth for the service of the nation through renunciation. Swami Chidanand Saraswati said: “Yoga guru Ramdev is a great inspiration to all the youngsters. Yoga fills the youth with energy.”
