The United Nations International Day of Yoga is celebrated on 21st June. The UN mentions that during COVID-19,"Yoga is a powerful tool to deal with the stress of uncertainty and isolation, as well as to maintain physical well-being".

The positive impact of this annual festival on the international community in sustaining Yogic traditions and  bringing innovative ways of incorporating a Yogic lifestyle in daily life, is tremendous.

"A true Yogic practice addresses all aspects of our personality. The Vedas say that we are not just a bunch of chemicals called this body. Our personality has got five sheaths or layers to it. Any disease then needs to be tackled in all these five layers. Yoga means Union of the individual consciousness with the Supreme Consciousness. When that Yog happens, everything in your personality will become aligned to give you good health at the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual levels," - Swami Mukundananda, Founder of the yogic system, "Yoga for the Body, Mind, and Soul" 

  • Connect with a worldwide community of Yogis and inspiring instructors.

  • Transform your life with Yoga!

Pujya Rameshbhai Oza (Bhaishri)

Spiritual Leader

Bhaishri was born on 31st August 1957, in a small village named Devka situated in the Saurashtra district of Gujarat. His parents, Late Shri Vrajlal Kanjibhai Oza and his mother Smt. Laxmiben Oza are Brahmins hailing from the Audichya community. Bhaishri received his initial education at 'Tatvajyoti' , a Sanskrit school located in the small town of Rajola. Eventually, he moved to Mumbai, where he completed his primary education and attended college. Although Bhaishri pursued his education with great sincerity, his heart and soul belonged to learning the scriptures and spreading the divine message. While other children played, Bhaishri spent his time immersed in religious activities.

Bhaishri’s interests always led him to study and practice the religious scriptures. He would often attend his uncle, Shri Jeevarajbhai Oza’s discourses. Shri Jeevrajbhai was a highly respected narrator of the Shrimad Bhagavat, himself and he first noticed a spark of spiritual genius in Bhaishri's character and encouraged it. Bhaishri developed a keen interest in the Shrimad Bhagavat, the Ramayana too, in particular the Ramacharitamanas composed by Gosvami Tulsidasaji, and the Bhagavad-Gita.

At the age of 13, he held his first discourse on the Shrimad Bhagavad-Gita and at age 18 he recited his first Shrimad Bhagavat katha, held in central Mumbai. His faith and beliefs only grew with age.

From humble beginnings, Bhaishri has gone on to capture the hearts and minds of millions across India and the world guiding his brethren through life’s trials and enriching their lives with spirituality.

As Bhaishri’s kathas gained popularity all over India, devotees were eager to listen to these discourses beyond the Indian shores. Across the world, in the United States, Canada, the UK, Portugal, Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Bhaishri captivated audiences of all ages and communities.

Having studied the Vedas and the Upanishads in great depth, Bhaishri also wished to propagate the knowledge of these scriptures and bring forth a new generation of scholars who would take the past into the future. Thus, emerged the noble thought of Sandipani Vidyaniketan.

Bhaishri’s kathas and discourses have helped and inspired many to lead their lives the right way. People have shown their gratitude in many different ways. They have opened their hearts to his various causes by contributing their time, effort and giving donations.

For thousands, Bhaishri is more than just a spiritual leader. He is a source of knowledge and an inspiration.
