MUNGER: Inaugurating the fourth World Yoga convention and the golden jubilee celebration of Bihar School of Yoga here on Wednesday at the local Polo Maidan, its chief, Swami Niranjananand Saraswati said this convention would usher in a new era of progress for human development the world over.

He said during the last 50 years, the Bihar School of Yoga had taught people what should be the practical and scientific approach towards society as a whole and individual life.

Now, he added, yoga is being practised globally for the development of talent and wisdom in private and industrial sectors. It has reached every door in the world but 50 years back there was no one to propogate this ancient science among people.

Swami Shivanand Saraswati held the first world yoga convention in Rishikesh in 1973 and later on, his disciple Swami Satyanand started the Bihar School of Yoga at Munger. Niranjananand said a blueprint of the propogation of yoga would be prepared during the five-day convention for the next 20 years.

Former vice chancellor of Gujarat University and visiting consultant on yoga in Canada and USA, Dr Upendra Bakshi said the impact of yoga is now being felt so much that they are changing lifestyles. Among other delegates, Arundhati of Canada, Swami Suvigyan of Bulgaria, Swami Aghoranand of Brazil, Rishi Prabha of Kolkata and Swami Dharmanand of Australia addressed the convention and threw light on the activities of yoga institutions across the world.
