Inspired by the renowned spiritual leader, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a Yoga Club was inaugurated at the Japanese Parliament by Ravi Shankar himself recently.
Over a hundred parliamentarians have already signed up to be members of the club, said senior parliamentarian Hiroshi Yamada.
“With guidance from Sri Sri, we are very sure that the initiative will become a grand success,” he added.
The year 2017 having been declared as the year of ‘Japan-India Friendly Exchanges,’ this initiative is being seen as a milestone in the tradition bound Japanese culture.
Hakubun Shimomura, who has held many senior ministerial berths in the Government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, will be the Chairman of the Yoga Club.
Shimomura shared that he is inspired by Ravi Shankar’s vision of a stress-free society and one world family.
