ONE of the most respected high priests in India is in Savusavu, Vanua Levu, this week to conduct yoga sessions for interested individuals.

His Holiness, Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda Puriji Maharaj, is at Daku Resort to conduct his Navratri Yagya activities from 7am to 9.30am and 10pm to 11pm daily until Sunday.

A statement from the resort said Mr Maharaj would also give his blessings at the end of the yagya each morning.

"Mr Maharaj is a disciple of Hindi Dharmsamrat Satguru Sri Swami Madhavanand Puriji Maharaj of Sri Alakhpuriji Sidddha Peeth Parampara, Alakpuriji in India," the statement said.

"He has founded several charitable organisations, for example the internationally acclaimed system of yoga in daily life, Sri Swami Madhavananda World Peace Council, Sri Devpuriji Ashram Trust and he also has hundreds of ashrams around the world.

"The largest is a monumental structure in the shape of the Om, located in Pali District, Rajasthan, India. Mr Maharaj's work has been recognised by the United Nations."

The statement said this was Mr Maharaj's fourth visit to Fiji.

"This is also his first visit to Vanua Levu. We are all greatly blessed and happy to have such a great master as our Gurudev, His Holiness Vishwaguru Swami Maheshwaranandaji Maharaj."

The resort is urging interested people to join the session at the resort.
