Pujya Swamiji: host, International Yoga Festival at Rishikesh.

When the Beatles made their famous 1968 journey to Rishikesh, India, they were following a well-worn, if little-known, trail of seekers, sages, and spiritual pilgrims. Today, this “city of the divine” nestled in the Himalayas has only grown in significance among yoga devotees around the world. Thanks largely to H. H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji (“Pujya Swamiji”), Rishikesh has become a mecca of sorts as host to the International Yoga Festival, based at his ashram, Parmarth Niketan, since 1999.
