Swami Ramdev will undertake an eight-day cruise trip to Hong Kong, China and Vietnam to propagate and teach Yoga and Pranayam to over 950 meditators onboard Super Star Virgo cruise.
Just before Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee's visit to China, this unique exercise assumes significance in direction of improving cooperation between India and China as also the tourism and trade sector.
Beginning tomorrow, the special onboard yoga camp is being organised by the Kolkata-based Vishwa Jagriti Mission Trust under the aegis of Patanjali Yogapeeth, Hardwar.
Patanjali Yogapeeth spokesman S K Tijarawala said the tri-nation religious circuit has been specially chosen to provide unparalleled opportunities for meditators to rediscover themselves.
The day at the cruise will begin with Yoga and Pranayam exercises and balanced diet and vedic lifestyle will be strictly monitored from dawn to dusk.
''This unique pursuit will provide an opportunity to understand the essence of life, besides realising truth and peace. The participants are very much excited and enthusiastic. Request for addition of names of other family members and friends of fortunate meditators are pouring in. All seats are full,'' he added.
The large group of high-profile meditators will leave Delhi on May 31 to board the cruise in Hong Kong on June 1, en route to Sanya City in China, Holong Bay (Vietnam), Xiamen (China). The trip will end on June 7.
