Why Rishikesh is called World Capital of Yoga?

The major reason for Rishikesh’s renown as the yoga capital is its contrast with the overtly spiritual flavor of other destinations, such as Varanasi and Haridwar, which are more focused on Hindu religion and rituals.

Rishikesh’s remoteness has further meant that common services aren’t readily available here, making it perfect for the yogic way of life, which involves cutting yourself off from the world to concentrate on the spiritual. Yoga and meditation are omnipresent in Rishikesh and not just in the ashrams. Filled with beautiful winding streams leading off of the Ganges and breathtaking natural splendor, every corner of Rishikesh makes a great makeshift yoga studio. Spirituality pervades almost all aspects of life in Rishikesh, with days usually starting and ending with meditation and yoga sessions. The town is also filled with numerous small temples where kirtan and bhajan sessions are conducted on a daily basis. Yoganandham also offers the same spiritual environment of Ashram living to our guests with Yoga and Meditation.

Yoga and Mediatation at Sunrise

Why it is good to practice Yoga at the time of Sunset?

Expert yogis believe that you only have two options for what is considered the most ideal time of day to do yoga: during sunrise or sunset. First off, performing yoga during sunset or in the evening works best if you want to recuperate from a stress-filled day. It will enable you to revive your energy and bring more vitality back into your body. This is also highly recommended for those who are suffering from chronic insomnia due to an excessive amount of stress.

On the other hand, there are also yogis who believe that doing yoga in the morning offers more benefits, especially with exposure to sunrise. You can do this for at least 30 minutes so you might want to get out of bed earlier than your usual morning routine. Starting your day early and filled with energy will provide you with enough strength (of mind and body) to get through the day

Why Diwali is Celebrated?
Diwali is called the Festival of Lights and is celebrated to honor Rama-Chandra, the seventh avatar (incarnation of the God Vishnu). It is believed that on this day Rama returned to his people after 14 years of exile during which he fought and won a battle against the demons and the demon king, Ravana. People lit their houses to celebrate his victory over evil (light over darkness). The goddess of happiness and good fortune, Lakshmi, also figures into the celebration. It is believed that she roams the Earth on this day and enters the house that is pure, clean, and bright.
Diwali celebrations may vary in different communities but its significance and spiritual meaning is generally “the awareness of the inner light”. It is also the beginning of the new financial year for the business community.
